C, Chalmers has bought  the moving picture show business in Greenwood, Phoenix and  The ladies of St.  Jude's guild  held their annual bazaar in the  Auditorium last Wednesday.   The  main body of the   building   was  portioned off to booths for the sale  of flowers, candy, fancy and useful  articles.   One corner was devoted  to an art gallery, another to a cake  weight guessing competition,  another to a fish pond and another to  a   candle   lighting    competition.  The entrance hall was fitted up  for the high tea ; whilst up in the  gallery there was a shooting range;  indeed, every available part of the  building was occupied and the way  the ladies kept things  humming  during the afternoon and evening  was   a   marvel   considering   the  smallness of their number.   The  attendance   both   afternoon   and  evening was all that could be desired.   The high tea was quite a  feature and was well patronized,  several of the messes in the city  closed up and attended in a body.  After the high tea was over,   a  splendid program of songs, recitations and a laughable farce was  rendered by several   local   ladies  and gentlemen.   The Dutch  girl  drill by the members of the Junior  W.A.  was well rendered, and altogether, the concert right through  was quite the best program that  has been put up here for quite a  while and was worth more than  double  the  amount  charged for  admission.   The whole affair was a  financial success,  $325 being the  amount made, and the ladies of  the guild desire to thank everybody  for their splendid support.

It believes  in justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in the mine to the  king who sits on the cushions of the throne.

A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, ancl that tho editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  All the thieves are not in jail.  Tiieub is little love lost between  Tacoma and Seattle.  Titkke is a" dash of American  politics in England these days.  It is your faith,  and not the  patent  ills.  medicine that cures  your  The stane age is once more upon  us. Put that bottle in your pocket,  Archie!  The model husband never has to  light a match, to find the keyhole  in the door.  In the United States many  bloated office-holder will shed  tear next March.  If possible some real estate peddlers would make a subdivision of  the grounds in a coffee pot.  Tjik tourist trade will yet become the greatest asset that we  have in this province.' We cannot  lose the mountains unless the universe has a collision with some  more powerful planet.  It looks as though -there might  be another boom at Nelson, judging from the reported mysterious  movements of real estate buyers.  A few factories, and more tourists  would make a lasting boom in the  city of rose gardens.  The other day a Socialist told  ns that in a short time the people  in the United States would be eating grass. Well, that is just as  good as some of the modern breakfast foods, especially if it is fried  in butter, and served in small haystacks. .  In several parts of the province  the people are already talking  about the boom in the spring.  The owner of tho Appeal to  Reason recently committed suicide.  This is an awful warning to others.  With so many microbes doing  bnsiuess all the time, it is a wonder  that man lives more than a minute.  The swimming hole is deserted,  but there is quite a bunch looking  in the windows of the skating rink.  We need more canning factories  in B. C, and more fruit pickers.  Otherwise it will pay better to raise  hogs and cattle.  The Turks must be fairly sober  by this time for we notice by late  war despatches that their retreats  have been cut-off.  In London recently Sarah Barn-  hardt was hugged by a bear. Years  ago that bear would have been envied by many a man.  Dear Mike, we would advise  you to keep away from Constantinople, until the situation around  that camp becomes more pleasant.  Thinking Themes  I like to read no book that makes  upon me the impression of ugliness  or dirt.  No book where all the characters  are low and sordid has any excuse  for existence.  For truth is never ugly. No  group of people aro ever totally depraved. And an artist is not a  person who can see only deformed  or perverted things. If he had  eyes he could see some beauty and  grandeur in anything.  For this reason I cannot like  "Madame Bovary," where every  figure is that some kind of a pitable  object.  Realism is right. But ugliness  is never real. To describe it, and  reveal only ugliness, is to argue an  ugly soul.  Sudermann's "Song of Songs"  is detestable.  We want authors who can speak  of the humbler walks of life. We  read no more such slops as the  Duchess or Mary Jane Holmes  wrote. Their tales were rosy and  pretty enough but were unreal.  We want realists who can see  the most real of all things, the  beauty and grandeur of our dust.  ���������Frank Ciane.  agriculture and morals, one thing  leads on to another, and not coir.es  suddenly but cyclones, . volcano  eruptions, holocausts and the boll-  weovil.  Nature produces new things  when wo aro ready for them, and  the inspiration to invent, discover  and solve is necessity. That is the  reason^why Columbus, Magellan,  Frobisher and Norsemen were  working independently along the  same lines at approximately the  same time. Europe was gotting  too small for the number of people in it. Virginia and Massachusetts were necessary, andflit is  possible that tho same was true of  Newport, Rhode Island.  In aerial navagation we had  Cnrtiss, tho Wright brothers, Count  Zeppelin, Santos-Dumont and a  dozen others literally and figuratively breaking their necks at the  same time; and he would be a venture somo historian who would try  to name tho first half dozen auto-  mobilist, for the world was thinking and breathing automobiles in a  thousand spots at once.  Tho Elizabethan age was tbe  Golden Age of Literature because  the world had to have what it  needed at that time, and not because men as a class were any  smarter or more literary than they  are today. And we have today  great labor conflcts, socialism, and  wars in Mexico, Tripoli, China and  Central America, all in answer to  the same industrial and commercial  necessities.   ���������  To know the needs of mankind  is the first step toward usefullness*  and when a dozen creative minds  reach the same conclusion simultaneously it is not because of a dozen  mental accidents, but because the  world's necessity is the mother of  progress, and because creation, inspiration, discovery aud invention  are processes of evolution.���������Harlan  Read.  Just a month to Christmas, and  Santa Claus has not yet bought an  air-ship. He must be coming with  the same old pair of bobs that he  had years ago.  Dlikino last month one store at  the coast, delivered 64,000 parcels  to its customers in the city. It is  needless to say that that store car  ries page ads in the papers.  There is a vast amount of good  land tributary to Greenwood,  which, when discovered by real  ranchers will be a source of great  wealth to the entire district.  Invention and Discovery  Great thoughts and noteworthy  deeds are gradual developements.  not sudden miracles.  New wonders are produced by  borrowing from the past and building upon what has already been  accomplished. The footpath begets  the road, the road fathers the horse  car, the horse car evolves into the  railroad, the railroad engine suggest the automobile and the chug-  buggy starts Curtiss and Wright to  dreaming about the aeroplane.  The alchemy of the inventor is  not to suddenly produce the unknowable from tho unknown, but  to take a machine that already exists, add a few cogs here, simplify  there and got royalties on the results���������if ho can.   So in education,  Up to You  Nothing hurts a man more than  to seem small and ignoble ,in his  own eyes. It is tho slavish feeling  that degrades the slaved. A base  ambition makes tho man that  cherishes its base. No ono can debase you but yourself. Slander,  satire, falsehood, injustice���������these  can never rob you of your manhood. Men may lie about you,  they may donounce you, they may  cherish suspicious manifold, they  may make your feelings the target  of your wit and cruelty. Never be  alarmed; never swerve an inch from  the lino your judgement and conscience have marked out for you.  They cannot, by all their efforts,  take away your knowledge of your  self, tho purity of your motives,  the integrity of your character, and  the generosity of your nature.  While theso are left you are, in  point of fact, unharmed. Nothing  outside yourself can ever make you  smaller than you are today- If  you should dwindle; if leanness and  inability shall come to any faculty;  if you shall lose what makes you  an ornament to that rank and order  of intelligence to which you were  born���������the loss will be a a self-indicted one Self-degradation is tbe  only degradation man can know.  "I never listen to calumnies,"  says Montesquieu, "because if they  are untrue I run the risk of being  deceived; and if they bo true, of  hating persons not worth thinking  about." Sir Walter Scott characterizes calumny as the vile habit,  into which baser spirits sink, of  cutting honest throats by whispers.  At recess time many of the children, make a rush for this candy-  shop. They want to go somewhere, for the idea of exploring his  environment is one of the strongest attributes of childhood.  The child is hungry, or think he  is. He has a craving to eat something and chew something and  swallow something, ancl so he buys  cookies, gingerbread, chocolate-  creams, icecream cones, all-day  suckers, and invests in fruit which,  for the most part, has boon bought  because it was cheap and afforded  a profit.       i  indiscriminate eating between  meals is ono of tho worst habits  that tho child can acquire.  Regular hours to eat and regular  hours to sleep seem absolutely necessary for a high degree of health.  Tho dangers that lurk in the  corner candyshop aro ��������� too great to  overlook.  We hear much about the corner  saloon, but an argument can be put  up for the saloon to the effect that  it is the poor man's club. And  the man who has toiled long and  hard has the right to find rest and  a degree of dissipation, forgetful-  ness and oblivion from the eternal  grind.  But no such argument can be  put for the corner candy-shop.  Of course, we do not blame the  individual who runs it. He is  simply, a good man in a bad business. Parents and teachers are  the ones to blame, because if there  were no customers there would be  no candy-shop.  My belief is that a corner candy-  shop can work a greater harm to  society thai** does the corner saloon.  One thing sure, it has ten times as  many customers.  Eating candies and indigestible  things in the middle of the day unfits the child for study, spoils his  teeth, taints his breath, tends to  ruin his digestion, racks his nerves.  Ho becomes weak, yellow, nervous,  irritable, and easily evolves into a  cigarette-fiend.  This corner candy-shop comes to  us from London. I have seen in  London schools rewards of pennies  offered for especially good work in  the line of stndy. And then at  recess-time the youngsters wore  allowed and encouraged to go out  with their pennies and spend them.  Boys and girls should understand that money is not to spend  for useless trifles. Ancl just why  money should be given to children  before they know how to use it is  something we havo not so far been  told.  Until children are old enough to  earn money they should not have  Schoolteaching is on a very crude,  rude, lowly basis when there is no  supervision of the children at ro-  cesB-time, and where there is no  instruction and supervision along  the line of dietetics and outdoor  physical culture.  The corner candy-sho,p has got  to go. It should be starved out.  Lot tho owner take np something  worth while. And lot it all get  fixed in bur heads that giving  money to children is neither kindness nor common sense. It is  teaching oconomics out of season.  The sooner the attention of teachers is focused on this evil, the better for humanity and the better for  tho generations that are to follow.  ���������Tho Fra.  About Sheep  The Candy Store  Near every public school in all  our towns and cities will bo found  a candy-shop.  The enterprise is usually in  charge of a very old woman, a  decrepit man, or somo ono who  needs assistance and has been set  up in business by some charitable  relative.  any, for no one knows the value of  a dollar until he has labored for it.  Children should be taught everywhere, by their teachers, that the  candy-shop is not a necessity for  their well-being���������that danger and  disease lurks therein.  The quality of the stuff sold in  the candy-shop is away below par.  The place is unsanitary, unhygienic, non-systematized, and affords no lesson in business.  Oral righteousness is now being  taught in a great number of public  schools, and the time will come  when tbe care of the teeth will be  considered just as necessary as the  schooling of the brain.  The first requisite is to be a good  animal, and in order to got a good  animal the corner candy-shop must  go.  In the city of Portland, where  there are supervised playgrounds,  and gardens as well, I noticed that  the children at recess time do not  look for a place to spend money.  They wero let right out into the  open, and they knew what they  wore going to do. And instead of  wandering out across tho street and  down to the corner candy-shop,  they go at once to thoir games or to  their work in tho gardens.  Tho antidote for the candy-shop  is the supervisee] playground or the  3chool-gardon..  Results are already being shown,  following the vigorous campaign  prosecuted by Hon. Martin Burrell,  Minister of Agriculture, during the  past summer, in the interests of the  sheep industry. Mr. Burrell found  when he took office that this industry which has been steadily declining in Canada, had been largely  neglected by the department. Little effort had been made to improve  conditions or stir up interest. So  rapidly has the industry beeu declining that there are actually less  sheep in Canada today than twenty  years ago, and this despite the fact  that agriculture generally has  made enormous strides. In 1881  the total sheep population of Canada was given as 3,048,678, in 1901  2,510.238, and in 1911 it had further declined nearly another half  million to 2,106,000. Many reasons  are assigned for this falling off, but  at the bottom of them all is the  fact that the industry was not  given the incouragement it should  have .and no effort was ever made  to improve marketing conditions.  Tne first thing Mr; Burrell did  was to secure the co-operation of  the Dominion Sheep Breeders  Association, and with their assistance a careful survey of the possibilities of sheep raising has been  made in the provinces of British  Columbia, - Nova Scotia, New  Brunswick and Prince Edward  Island. It was found that in the  Maritime provinces, where the soil  and climate are particularly adapted  to the growing of sheep, there was  a general and admitted need of new  blood to rajuvenate the stock.  The farm flocks as it were, "run to  seed"; and it was in recognition of  the demand it was decided that the  introduction of high-class breeding  rams, together with a limited number of grade ewes, would meet the  most urgent requirements of that  part of the Dominion.  In British Columbia there appeared a definite lack of flock  material, the ewe stock of the province not having increased in proportion to the demand for home  grown mutton and lamb. The  markets of Victoria and Vancouver  have developed in the farmers a  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

In order to meet the demand,  both east and west, a large number  of carefully selected grade ewes and  pure bred rams were purchased in  Ontario and shipped to the four  provinces during the month of September. A few Cheviot rams were  purchased in the United States to  meet the special requirements of  the hill country in Nova Scotia and  New Brunswick.  These sheep amounting to practically to eighteen hundred head,  including both rams and ewes, were  sold by public auction at the following points: British Columbia:  Victoria, New Westminster and  Vernon; Nova Scotia: Yarmouth,  Bridgowator, Inverness, North  Sydney and Truro.

Mcdonald,  District Pnssenger Agent, ,  Nelson, B.C.  By William Joucs ���������  (Copyright by Publishers Press, Ltd.),  The family always had decided  things for Penelope' Bushnell. In the  first place there was only one of her  against' innumerable quantities of  family, and in more ways than, one  might often makes right.  "When she was a,young girl Penelope was round faced, apple cheeked  and of the dumpling variety, and  everybody in town then spoke of her  as a pretty young woman. She looked  the type to amble, on through life  with only the usual, ordinary, things  happening to her, but fate.got mixed,  for the young man to whom she had  became engaged ��������� as a mattor of  course, after going with him through  high school, was dro'wned one sunny  June morning when he and the  "crowd" were In swimming under the  railroad bridge up the river.  Penelope went around after Luke's  death as heartbroken and tragic as an  apple cheeked girl could be, but secretly she.was scandalized to find how  soon she began to take an interest in  fall fashjons and what her mother was  going to have for dessert. It did not  seem decent somehow when her life'  had been blighted at its very star!. In  reality it had merely been fancy  which had made Luke and her think  they were each other's fates. A very  sweet, girlish affection she had' for  him, but love was undreamed of by  Penelope. It took Ford Drummond to  teach her that, and the family opposed Ford from tho very first.  The Drummonds had come to town  cnly a few years before and calmlr  overrode so many of the current prejudices that people Eaid they wero odd  and disapproved of them. As to Ford  Drummond, he would not settle dywn  to work.  Nevertheless, he easily was tho most  attractive young man in town. Penelope's family were very set in their  Ideas,- and one among them was that  every man should earn his own liv'ng  and stand on his own feet, instead  of living on his father as' Ford Drummond did. He made a few essays in  business, but always quit in a shorl  time, saying he did not like what h������  was doing.  "He's shiftless and lazy," Penelope's  father said violently soon after Ford  Drummond began dropping in to see  Penelope frequently. . "I'm not going  to have a daughter.of mine throw herself away on.a good looking scramp  like him. I'm going to save you from  making a goose of yourself, Penelope.  When you get married you pick out  some steady man who isn't afraid to  work and who can take care of you."  At first Penelope plucked up enough courage to argue back, spurred  on by the strange new happiness  Which was flooding her very soul,,and  then her joy became streaked with  misery. But even she could see tha:  Ford had no future berore him.  "I wish I could believe in you," she  told him piteously. "You did not keep  your word to me that you would stick*  It out in the abstract office. It's been  the same with everything you've tried  for two years. Maybe father's right"  He had looked at her bitterly and  then softened. "I guess I'm no good,  Pen," he said. "I can't seem to fit in.  Things don't appeal to me. But, soma.  how, I feel I'll do things when fits  right chance comes along."  Ford had gone away then and Penelope had cried herself sick helplessly.  She loved him even though she could  uot approve of him and his constant  failure hurt. He drifted out of the  town's memory in time.  Penelope never went with any one  else and In a few years was one of  the accepted, permanent spinsters of  the place. It did not seem possible  she ever had been connected with  romauce or .tragedy. She was over  forty when Ford' Drummond came  back to town and registered at the  best hotel. The local editor, being  new, did not remember the name as  that of a former resident, and judging  merely by the stranger's clothes and  general air, noted that "Mr. Ford  Drummond, a prosperous citizen of  Nevada, is stopping at the Park  House." Penelope held the paper  stiffly for a long while after she  had read the item, resurrecting with  painful labor the past. When she  and Ford met at a social shortly  afterward they regarded each other  with a kind of wonder, not at their  changed physical aspects, but at their  mutual consciousness of a living past  In which they had cared for one another. Both of them were strangely  lestitute of words that night, but the  aext evening Ford Drummond came  Sown the street under the maples  :oward her home, and she knew his  itep before she saw him. How many  times, years ago, had she sat like this  ba the dusk waiting for him! They  sat long in the shadow of the vines  talking as people do when they are  ra the downward slope. He told'her  all that had come to him, slipping  back through the years till he paused  at the boy she had known, remembering.  "You see, I was right after all," he  said. "I wasn't built for petty mer-  chanting or dry clerical work. I  didn't care what became of me when  pou went back on me, Pen, at first.  Then I got angry to think you didn't  believe in me and I resolved to succeed. The minute I hit that mining  region it was like a new world and I  struck my gait. I made good���������so good  that I was too busy for years to think  of anything in the past. Then when  t did I concluded you had, of course,  married some one else. And then of  late I wanted to see you so bad that  I came back anyhow. Will you go  back West with me?"  Penelope Bushnell was crying and  somehow the tears made her face  eeem younger. "How can you want  me," she asked, "when I didn't ~'c ave  any faith in you then?"  "There wasn't anything to h.vrrt  faith in then," the man told her  gravely. "I'd never amounted to a  row of pins If you hadn't oast me out  and hurt my pride. You've made me  what I am and I've never cared for  anyone else, Pen. We're going to'  grow old soon and It seems to me the  rest of our days might be happy. Will  Irou marry me?"

The age of China Is, says a writer,  so great that tho beginnings aTe lost  in the mists of antiquity. It was  probably old when Egypt was young.  China was China when Abraham went  out from Ur of the Chaldees and became the founder of a new nation.  Beyond all questions, China is the  oldest living nation, and most homogeneous. '  The sages, rather than the kings,  have shaped China. The teachings of  Confucius, who lived In the sixth century ��������� before Christ, expounded a  moral philosophy and a scheme of  human government which, roughly  speaking, made China. His "five relations" have fixed the social order;  theso are the relations of ruler and  his officials, husband and wife, father  and son, elder and younger brother,  and friend ,and friend. These account for the formalism and fidelity  of social ties in China, and for the.  complete subordination of the Individual. Filial piety is the cardinal  virtue. The Emperor, who Is" the  "Son of Heaven," Is an absolute autocrat, because the people stand toward  him in tho relation of children to  parent. The system of government is  thoroughly patriarchal. Through all  storms and stress, tills doctrine has  held the literati loyal to the throne,  and' has furnished, down to recent  days, sublime instances of devotion.  Confucius is the Atlas who has borne  the "Middle Kingdom" upon hda  shoulders. And Confucius kept his  own face, and the faces of his people,  turned toward the past. The colossal  conservatism of China is directly  traceable to the sage's teaching concerning the "good old days" and tho  rights of the dead.  NOTICE  Land Registry Act  PE0GEE8S IN THE WEST  A piece of railway construction  that is almost unique is now under  way on the British Columbia Division  of the Canadian Northern Railway.  It is a thTee mile stretch between  Sr-en^e's Bridge and Welhachin located at a point about an equal distance from the towns of Lytten and  Asbcreft and In that strip of right of  way four tunnels aTe to be built. Ooo  will bo fifteen hundred feet in length,  another a thousand feet and the two  others five hundred feet each.  Recently six hundred men were  employed tliere but this number will  probably be doubled in the immediate  future. Owing to the anxiety of ths  Canadian Northern to complete the  entire section of their line from Edmonton to Vancouver it is probable  that construction work will be proceeded with during the winter. This,  however, should prove in so sense a  hardship because of the mellow  climate of 'the coast province and of  the fact that this underground cutting will place the men employed  beyond the interference of conditions  obtaining outside.  In addition to this section of heavy  rock work there are two other tunnels to be built in this mountain  district that aro even of greater size.  One of theso, which Is located near  the town of Yale Is to be almost half  a mile long, or to be exact 2,070 feet  The othor bore Is to be made In the  Black Canyon close to the town of  Ashcroft.

They overlook their need for  rest In the desire to participate in all  the amusements and distractions offered to them. The young people are  so anxious not to lose a moment of  the time so wholly their own Uiat  they count themselvefl unfortunate to  have a vacant hour In the day's programme. But for the middle-aged the  holiday should not be of this  strenuous order tf It is to do any lasting good. Excess must be, avoided  none the less when the ordinary life  ia rather sedentary than otherwlae.  It Is a big mistake for a man or  ���������woman to tfoivk that because he or  she generally spends the best part  of the day In a chair at a desk, tho  one precious fortnight ought to find  them perpetually on their feet, or  even Indulging in the most violent  exercise. Under the belief that they  are getting thoir muscles into good  order.they are putting a severe strain  on the heart that has been long accustomed to very gentle movement  only. The best thing for these people  Is to take a couple of days' entire  rest, and then to begin gradually with  walking exorciae or tho like. This  moderation will enable the holiday-  maker to enjoy every hour, and to  undertake in tho ond consldorablo  exertion with real bonofit to his wholo  system.

MINING NEWS   |  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  "With a couplo of ounces of good'  coarse gold, Dr. A. W. Molsey  went from Lome Creek to Vancouver this week. The doctor who  is a well-known mining man, having been one of the most energetic  operators in the Portland Canal  district during its eariy days, is  now centering his operations upon  developing a placer mining property on Lome Creek, a stream running into the Skeena at Mile 129.  Gold in paying quantities has  been known to exist there for a  number of years, nearly a hundred  thousand dollars have been taken  out some years ago by an hydraulic  company. The latter had to abandon operations, as the pay, which  is all on bedrock, was at such a  depth that it was impossible to get  the huge amount of waste dirt  away.    .  The present syndicate, of which  Dr. Molsey is the head, have obtained a lease of the ground, and  are working it by placer methods,  tunnelling in along the pay streak  similar to the methods used in the  Yukon. The only difference is  that the ground not being frozen  every bit of it has to be timbered.  There being plenty of tho latter  available, this is of small consideration. At present they are in 156  feet and working away steadily,  intending to continue doing so all  winter.  The   two    ounces   the   doctor  brought down was cleaned up from  Mr.     Maynard,    of   Okanagan  Falls,   was in  town this week on  business in connection   with   hie  mining claims.    Mr.   C.   Camsell,  government mining expert   paid a  visit to tho   claim   recently   and  examined the   asbestos showings.  Although   lie   made   no   definite  statement,   Messrs  Maynard   and  Hyslop have every confidence in  tho quality of the mineral, which  they  asseit  is equal to   that   of  Thotford,  Ontario,   mine, ciaimed  to   bo tho richest   in  the world.  Should this turn  out to be correct  the owners aro in  a fair way to  amass   a   fortune,   as   the whole  mountain   comprising the claims,  appear to  bo a solid mass of asbestos in serpentine formation.  Messrs Maynard and Hyslop  have driven in two horizontal  shafts, seventy-five feet and fifty-  five feet aud a verticle one of fifteen feet is intended to cut the  south workings. Fibre from four  to fourteen inches has been fouud.  Systematic surface work will be  followed in future' with a view of  uncovering the blanket formation  which the owners claim covers the  whole mountain. With the prospect of transportation in view when  the district is opened up by the  Great Northern and Kettle Valley  railways there, appears to be a  great future yet in store for Okanagan Falls.���������Penticton Herald.  James B. Linton and associate  owners, have recently located what  they believe to be a very valuable  mining property about six miles  north of Sicamous. The property  is known as the Thunderbolt group.  It is a free-milling gold proposition. The ledge outcrops for a  width of 500 feet aud has been followed several miles, in all of which  distance the ledge is well defined.  Kecent assays give outcropping  gold values of SS.  pany for the past fifteen mouths,  as manager of its sawmill and mining properties, is in town. Mr.  Bamford, when seen, stated that  the condition of the mining and  timbering interests around Green  City is good and promises to be  very lively in the spring.  It is an assured fact, he says,  that the Peterson syndicate will  erect a big sawmill, adjoining  Green Cty in the spring, which  means that the syndicate will be  able to furnish employment for 200  men. The syndicate owns 19,000  acres of lino timber, 'which consists of Go par confc. cedar and  white pine and 25 per cent, of  spruce, hemlock and fir.  Mr. Peterson has rented the  residence of Mr. Meyers, at Erie,  and will reside there during the  winter, so as to be ready to begin  operations early in the spring on  the construction of the proposed  sawmill.  On November 2nd, the Second  Relief Mining Co. produced a gold  brick worth 3,000, as a result of a  14 day run at the mill, besides a  con-iderablo quantity of concentrates that run ������40 to the ton.  On the Keystone, which has  been bonded by Pritchard & Cassi-  dy, a good ieiul lias been opened  which is from three to six feet in  width, the ore of which averages  854 per ton. The oro resembles  that taken from tho Arlington  mine, and the lead, is thought to  be a continuation of that of the  Arlington.  J. Callahan, who owns prorerty  adjoining the Arlington, has uncovered a ledge three feet wide,  which assays from S40 to $G0'to  the ton. Mr. Callahan has half a  car on the dump and expects shortly to make a shipment.  On the Black Rock, owned by J.  McEvoy and E. ��������� Bellinger, the  ledge has been stripped for 200  feet. The ore is silver-lead and  gives returns of S12 to $60. Tho  ledge is from eighteen inches to  two feet in width.

Mr. Cowan reports that he will  drift on the ore and then rise to the  shaft as they are compelled to sack  the ore to save it in the drift, as  the tunnel! is 275 feet long with  bad air. He has ordered 1,000  sacks by express which will be at  tho mine shortly.  The news of this strike is of the  greatest interest to the Hazelton  district as it means mining on a  large scale with a greatly increased  payroll at the workings shortly.

Recently  two   carloads   of   oro  were shipped from the Blue Bird,  and  returns have   been   received  from the Trail smelter for tho first  carload, and they aro very satisfactory.    After paying SS per ton  for freight and treatment the oro  netted  the shipper S25 per   ton.  This shows that it went 833 per  ton,   which is high-grade ore almost anywhere.

Excitement  The Keremeos correspondent of  the   Hedley   Gazette   says:    The  town is all agog with placer excitement and the .valley is believed to  be on the eve,of a big placer mining boom.    Early in the summer  mention was made of a considerable portion of the river in the  vicinity   of   Ashnola creek  being  staked  for placer by Mr. Corwin  for Edward Mahon of Vancouver.  A couplo of months ago or more,  an old gentleman named  William  Willis appeared on the scene and  rumor had it that he aud his associate, Mr. Osgood were likely to take  over the Corwin locations, but instead of doing so they have gathered in a big area of placer ground  for themselves by staking twenty  miles of the river,  of which ten  miles   are   on   each   side   of   the  boundary line at Chopaca.    They  have a keystone drill at work and  if the prospect is favorable they  have gold dredges ready to put to  work.    Within the past few days  the river gravels have been panned  by an old placer prospector named  Lewis for Mahon of Vancouver and  it is reported that lots of colors  wore obtained along the river on  the R ranch.    All are awaiting the  result of the prospecting at Chopaca with the Keystone drill and  there is a general belief that in a  few days  something  out  of tho  ordinary will be doing.
