From time to time there has been  a great deal of talk of iron ores on  Bull River and Sand  Creek,   and  hopes have been cxpros-ued many a  time that some one   with  capital  would  go into   that   district and  actually find out just what may be  expected of the country in the way  of iron ore production.    Those who  have  had their eyes on that  territory for a long time will have their  questions set' at rest in a,short time.  Away back in tlie. time when Fernie  was  a  prospect  a  number of  local men'', including 8. F. Wallace  and Steve Manahan look up claims  on Sand Creek aud did some active  development work.    The hand drill  and dynamite wero all they had to  work    with,    and   although  they  opened up sonic fair showings they  were, unable to continue development.    Although   many engineers  and    capitalists   looked   over  the  property none would do any work,  and tho original locators iost interest, in   the  property.    Since   that  time different  parties held claims  there nnd have done, or pretended  to do,   some work.    Dr.   Ing,   of  Calgary, has now taken hold of the  claims,   aud   is  g-'ing  to find  out  just what is there.    lie already has  a diamond drill on tlie hill, and he  proposes to test the ledge at depth.  He   will  spend   several  thousand  dollars to  prove the property, and  if the  result justifies  the. doctor's  enterprise  he will have  a fortune.  The drill will he operated by horse  power, there being plenty of horse  feed  in  the  neighborhood, and  a  horse power machine being easier  to  get in  to  the property than a  gasoline or steam engine.���������Fernie  Free Press.

Tho prosecution of the  gamblers brought out tho fact that  one young man had lost about  $2,000 in the gambling dons. On  one occasion in a poker game the  stakes amounted to $1,800 in one  pot, which shows that tho games  were not always conducted by  "pikers." E, S. H. Winn conducted the prosecution for the city,  while C. E. R. Pincott was attorney for tho defense. The arrest  and trial of the gamesters caused  considerable of a sensation in the  Smelter City.���������Rossland Miner.  H. W. Farmer & Co.,  .   REAI/ ESTATE,  Rock Creek, B.

In Oregon some people aro praying for the rain to cease. Perhaps  the prayers for rain (not in Oregon)  in years gone by are being answered  this summer. Owing to a pressure  of business in the prayer line per-  -haps the Lord has not been able to  fill all the orders for rain until this  year. Verily, we should now be  gin to pray for more rubber coats  and umbrellas.  In the summer of 993 it was so  hot and dry that the woods caught  fire from the heat of the Sun. This  was in Europe, and the country  around Greenwood was not effected.  In the year G27 tho springs dried  up, and the old-timers died from  thirst. That was before they knew  how to put beer iu bottles. In  1705 it was so hot that meat could  be roasted in the rays of the Sun.

Dancing is one of the evil things  of the earth, according to many  sky pilots*. In itself it is delightful exercise, but it is usually carried  to excess, especially at balls that  last all. night. However if the  Queen says it is good, the lower  million will stick to it like a robin  to a cherry tree.  Jimmy Making Good  In his native, town Jimmy had  always been most popular with  young and old, but when  he  was  When the hydraulic mining men  returned    last    fall     from    their  season's work in the Omineca river  district, they told again of  the remarkable quartz outcrop pings   in  that part of  the countiy, and G.  W.   Otterson  and  others  brought  out fine looking samples of mineral  from  surface  showings.    As a result of  the revival   of  interest in  this district, it has been prospected  for quartz for the  first time  in its  history, with results which appear  to justify the most optimistic predictions of the old-timers.    Dr. B.  F. Stan wood, who spent the season  in the district, returned to Hazi-l-  ton yesterday   with S. Greeu, who,  accompanied   him.     The Doctor,  who has prospected  and mined in  every  mining state  in   the Union  aud in various districts  of   British  Columbia,   declares   that   he   has  never seen a district tlmt looked so  good.    He reports   a   number   of  phenomenal  showings of mineral,  discovered  this season,   and  substantiates    his   story  by  showing  samples of oro which would make  any    prospector's    mouth   water.  Dr.    Stan wood   and    his   partner  located fourteen quartz claims, including  several  on   a remarkable  showing of dry  silver  ore,   which  ������������������ . ,     .       ,. , looks as though it would carry ex-  sent away to  boarding school he       A. -  roaQ  f������������������ ���������   ������������������       -.      t ��������� .        ceptional  values.

TEACHING THE DOG  The training of animals, to teach  them to perform all sorts of entertaining tricks, is a task that requires  talent on tho part of the trainer, but,  above all, demands patience and a  thoroughly methodical procedure,  begin with the dog, and see how he  ts taughf his tricks.  The first -thing every dog must  learn' is his name. Selaot a short,  sharp-sounding name, and stick to  it Never call him anything else. If  you have several dogs, the name ia  taught on the same principle. Divide  their food, and then, placing a piece  On the ground call each in turn by  tulfi name, and give him the food when  he comes for it. Send the others  back if they come forward out of  their turn. By and -by they will learn  that a certain name is always associated with a certain dog. - Ramble  among the dogs, and call out one of  their names every now and then. If  the right dog comes to you, reward  htm with a piece of cracker. Pay  no attention to the other dogs. They  ,wlll learn very soon; and the first  great lesson ��������� dependence and obedience ��������� will .have been learned.  .Having taught a dog to fetch and  carry ��������� which he will easily learn  ������������������ the next 'thing is to teach him to  go and get any object called for,  Place a glove on the floor; then say  to the dog, "Fetch the glove," putting the accent on the last word,  Then, when he has done this several  times, place a shoe on the floor; and  teaoh him to fetch this in a similar  manner. Now place both objects on  the ground, and teaoh him to fetch  either ono, as asked tor ��������� rewarding  him when ho brings you the right  one, and rebuking him when hq  fetches tho wrong, which you take  from him and replace. He will soon  learn to distinguish the articles, when  a third may be substituted, and so  on until a number are on the floor.  You should then go into tho next  room, taking the dog with yon; and  send him to fetch any article you  mention. After a little time he will  bring you the right one every time.  Similar methods can be adopted  ���������with regard to other articles and tha  letters of the alphabet  MILLIONS OF FEET  Fully 20,000,000 feet of logs  were floated down the main Kettle  River and the North Fork this  season for the Cascade mill, the  Robinson & LeQuime Lumber  Company, Grand Forks, and the  Danville Lumber Company,s mill  at Danville, Wash.

Ovsteks are very plentiful this  year, which .will have a tendency  to offset the high price of porridge.  Oysters are a  delicious food, bat  they should be removed from the  shell   before   being eaten.   Even  when boiled the shell is not easily  digested, and as an article'of diet  It should be avoided by those with  weak stomachs.    When pearls are  found  in  oysters they should be  polished and given to the waiter.  Pearls    should   never  be  eaten.  Oysters are stimulating to tho brain  and nervous system and if eaten to  excess they may cause brain fever.  This  is probably tho reason that  make friends.    His first letter was  little more than a wail:  "I'm 'way behind the other boys  in everything," he wrote dolefully.  "Tisu't only studies, but it's gymnasium and banjos and everything.  I don't believe they'll ever have  much use for me."  But the second letter, written  after a week in the new school,  was quite different iu tone:  "I'm all right," he wrote to his  mother. "The boys say they'll  teach me all they know, for  they're proud to have me here. I  can stretch my mouth half an inch  wider than any boy in the school,  and my feet are the longest by a  full inch. So you needn't worry  about me any more."���������McCall's  Magazine. .

Dr. Stanwood  states that during  the season he  did not prospect for a single day  without finding something in  the  mineral line, and ho advises prospectors to devote their attcn Ion to  the district, in which  every  prospector this season was highly successful.     He   states     that    the  hydraulic   operators   are   making  good,    while    individual     placer  miners   are   having a   profitable  season.
