Charles Rendell's Death
Corporal John McNeill in a letter to Mr. Simms, of Vernon, tells
how Charles Rendell was killed in
the war.    On  the 18th of August
in company with other soldiers be
was fixing some trenches when tbe
enemy began to shell them.   While
seeking  shelter from these shells
Charles was  wounded in the back
by a piece of shrapnel,  and died
that night from his wounds.    All
his comrades,  among whom were
several Vernon boys felt his death
very keenly.   He was greatly beloved by all bis comrades, and was
a man who never skirked bis duty.
He proved himself to be a brave
soldier, and a thorough gentleman,
either under fire or any other condition of warfare.    Jt is the wish
of the Platoon Commander, N. G.
O.,   and   men with whom be was
associated that you would convey
to Mrs.   Rendell and family their
deepest sympathy for them in their '
terrible bereavement.     We   have
lost a good comrade; they have lost
a good husband and a kind father.
He died as a soldier should, doing
his duty.

Fraser Valley from Lytton to Chilliwack. The season laBts_from a
month to six weeks and this year
there is a big crop.
The Indians with their children
live in camps arranged like barracks, some of wood, some of canvas, but all perfectly clean and
well ventilated. In central aisles
are huge cooking ranges on which
they cook their sal_no__, beans,
potatoes and bread. Miles of

Goats "and Their Milk
Mr. V. D. Hondt, Goat Heaven
Farm, Spangle, "Washington, writes
in the Goat Keeper as follows:
On an area of . 15,000 square
miles Switzerland produces yearly
38,000,000 worth.of goats and goat
nroducts. Spain, Italy and Greece
are heavy producers of goats and
goat products.
France, Belgium, and Germany
are heavy producers, and are noted
for the high milking qualities of
their stock.
In Great Britain the British
Goat Society (under supervision
of the government) yearly publishes a stud register giving the
names and owners of pedigree stud
goats selected by the committee,
and recommended. for stock purposes.
In Bavaria the country is noted
for its larger number of centenarians. This fact is attributed by
doctors to the daily use of Yoghurt,
a product of goat's milk.
Goat's milk being: very digest-
able and rich, is recommended by
doctors for the use of babies and
The goat is immune from the

Mines and Mining      ~
Ore was encountered a few days
ago in the lowest tunnel on the
Freddie Lee, situated up Cody
gulch, and being operated by A.
W. McCune. The find consisted
of only a small stringer and is regarded as encouraging. This tunnel, which is designed to open up
the property at depth, is now in
270 feet, and, according to indication, has about 60 more feet to go
before getting underneath the
main ore shoot of the mine. The
Freddie Lee was one of the first
shippers of the Slocan, and for a
time, prior to the advent of transportation, ore had to .be packed for
a long distance to water transportation.
It is reported that the Silver
Hoard has closed a contract for a
50-ton daily capacity mill, to be
installed as soon as the building
can be erected and machinery
assembled. The decision of the
directors to provide a concentrator
is said to have been based on the
report of the consulting eugineer,
Harold Lakes, who has been- conducting a milling tesi) of a 50-ton
shipment of Silver Hoard ore at
the Canadian Consolidated mill at
Rossland. It is said that Mr.
Lakes' report states that a high
percentage of recovery of the values
is possible by simple wet concentration, followed ^by flotation, and
the system to be employed in the
mill will be devised and the installation superintended by him.
"About a hundred tons of high
grade ore are ready for shipment
from the Mountain Con, which is
located several miles above Sandon
on the north fork of Carpenter
creek, and according to the smelter
returns from the last car, Messrs'
McClurg and Bennett of Sandon,
and Yawkey and Poss, of New
York and Detroit, who are operating the Con, should do well on
their season's operations. The
last car slightly netted over ten
thousand dollars.
Good progress is being made on
the wagon road being constructed
to connect the Florence mine, on
Princess creek, with the Highland
concentrator at Cedar creek. The
mill, which is owned by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.,
has been secured by the Wolfe interests for the treatment of ore
from the Florence mine, and will
be in operation shortly. Definite
plans as to the means of haulage tq
be'employed have not yet been decided upon, but it is staged that
caterpillar tractors are being con
sidered. The Florence is now in
shape to deliver a big'tonnage of
milling ore, and negotiations have
been in progress for the securing
of a market of 200 tons of zinc per
month which is expected the property will be able to ship.
After being compelled  to store
its zinc product for the last three
months, the Rambler-Cariboo has
favorable prospects of securing a
zinc contract with Denver or Kan-
sat. City smelters, making possible
the marketing of 500  tons held in
reserve,   according  to Dr.   W. B.
McPhee, who returned to Spokane
a few days ago from  a trip to the
mine.    The mine is producing 400
tons of silver-lead concentrates and
zinc per month.    The last zinc contract  expired   May   25   after the
shipment of four cars,that netted a
total   of   approximately   $15,000.
' 'The Denver and Kansas City zinc
companies   are   evidently   in   the
market for our zinc and terms are
being considered," Dr.  McPhee is
reported as saying.    "The mine is
now  working 45 men. Operations
being underway in tunnels Nos. 3,
7, 8, 10 and 12.    In tunnel No. 10
a face of five feet of ore has been
opened.   The  silver-lead   concentrates now being shipped are bringing from $1800 to  02000 a car and
the crude ore about $2500,"���Kaslo
