another great expansion of trade

Russia has been greatly accelerated. Out of the present European
crisis there will come unprecedented industrial and commercial activity.
A dispatch from Halifax states
that the British steamer Durley
Chine, 1157 net tons, left Halifax
early last month bound for the
Fraser river to load a cargo Of
3,500,000 feet of lumber for the
Hudson Bay port. It is believed
that this is the initial shipment of
a big order for] British Columbia
lumber to be utilized for government work iu connection with the
construction of the Hudson Bay
railway terminals; at Port Nelson,
which has Justbeen placed by the
Dominion Department Of Railways
and Canals.
B. C. Copper Co
We have always considered, and
still consider, British Columbia
Copper as one of the best purchases
for the long pull among the coppers on the New York Curb, or in
any other market. To a proportionate extent the same remarks
apply to Canada Copper Corporation, which owns the controlling
interest in the British Columbia
Copper Company, but which has
a somewhat larger number of
shares outstanding.
British Columbia a couple of
years ago sold at over $8 a share
and in fact up to $14 a share.
That was at a time when the company was paying dividends. It
developed that the ores from the
big Mother Lode mine became
difficult of treatment in the company, 8 smelter. To remedy this
trouble the company began buying
custom ore from many outside
mines. The aim was to mix these
ores with the Mother Lode ores- so
as to make an easy smelting mixture, which would yield good recoveries of the metal values in the
Mother Lode ores, and would also
reduce smelting costs.
It seems that the British Columbia Copper Company was unsuccessful in its efforts to purchase
enough custom ores of the kind,
and then the company began a
campaign, of buying outside properties with the end in view of .mining its own ores in these properties,
to be used as fluxes with the
Mother Lode ores.
To buy all these properties meant
���s-large-capital-outlay?-- the- use-of
all the company's cash, and the
discontinuance of dividends.
British Columbia stock steadily
declined on that account.
Two years ago the British Columbia Copper Company secured
an option on what is known as the
Princess group of claims in the
Copper Mountain
Princeton, B.C.
Mountain property
inly valuable holding which is going to revolutionize the entire
British Columbia Copper ��� Company enterprise.
Over 6,000,000 tons of ore has
been" developed in the" past" few
months by systematic drilling on
about one-quarter of the ��� Copper
Mountain tract. This ore is of
much higher grade than that of the
Mother Lode mine and is also
easier of treatment. In fact on
the company's books it is shown
that the new Copper Mountain
property is alone worth several
times the combined valne of all the
older holdings of the British Columbia Copper Company, including the Mother Lode mine and including too, the company's Bplen-
did smelter;
The Copper Mountain property
will require a concentrator, and
plans for a mill to treat a
thousand tons per day have already
been completed, Work will soon
begin on running a railroad spur
the short distance of 12 miles up a
very easy valley from Princeton to
the Copper Mountain property.���

The Canadian Department of
Agriculture at Ottawa expended
large sums of money this year for
advertising in hundreds of newspapers. About 75 per cent, of this
money went to the newspapers,
and the balance to an advertising
firm in London, Ontario. Why
was this done? The Dominion
Government is probably the greatest advertiser in Canada, and surely ife was not necessary to band a
bunch of money to any firm to do
the business. It is such transactions thafe cast a shadow over any
government and give the grafters a
chance to fatten at the expense of
the public.
Told by Dreams
Impending death is sometimes
accurately foretold by dreams, according to L. W. Rodgers of New
York, national theosophic lecturer.
Modern psychology he said, needed
a Working hypothesis by which it
could explain many things that
now'seemed mysterious in connection with dreams." Much of the
mystery would be cleared away by
remembering that dreams are of
two kinds; in one case resulting
from the automatic action of the
physical brain, and in the other
bung, actual experiences of the cott-
K-iousness iu super physical realms.
Mr. Rodgers cited the case of
Dr. J. F. Bacon, who, two days
lief ore the San Francisco earthquake had dreamed that he was
.i bout to meet sudden death, yet
had no idea of the nature of the
details. He spoke to several
friends about it, and was killed the
next day by the collapse of his

Peace River
Slocan Mines
Two thousand actual settlers
have gone into the Peace River
district this year, according to W.
Rathbone Smith, general manager
of the E. D. & B. C. railway, who
is in a position to give an author-
itive estimate. In addition to this
the company has shipped in about
25,000 tons of freight. These figures give a striking idea of the
magniture of the northern movement now in progress.
About fifty per cent, of the settlers this year, says Mr. Smith,
have been Americans. He estimates the average value of their
effects and equipment at $1500,
and says that none of them wonld
have less than $2,000 in cash, and
some of them a good deal more
than that. These estimates mean
that settlers' effects worth one and
a half million dollars have gone
into the Peace River district this
year, with actual cash amounting
to about one million dollars.
"The country to the north of
Edmonton is the greatest mecca in
any portion of the Dominion at
the present time," said Mr. Smith,
"and it is not hard to account for
this." The excellent climatic conditions always mean assured crops,
there being a heavy annual precipitation, and the soil holding the
moisture so that there is abundance for maturing the grain. There
is comparatively little snow in the
winter, and cattle can consequently
graze out, this fact in itself being
of immense importance. Why, at
Spirit River I saw seventy head of
horses belonging to the Hudson's
Bay Company that had never been
fed a pound of hay, and they were
iu splendid condition.
"There are innumerable varieties of nutritious grasses with a
peculiar consistency that makes
for the early fattening of cattle.
Cattle fatten quicker there.than in
an other part of the. Dominion.
Generally speaking, it is grazing
country, and hay is available in
every quarter. The district is dotted with lakes, and there are
duck, swan, geese, prairie chicken
and moose to delight the sportsman and hunter.
"One great advantage is that
it is not a prairie country. There
are alternate stretches of open
prairie and woods, and anybody
taking tbe trouble to search can
get what he wants���a quarter section, partly wooded and partly
open, thus ensuring plenty of timber for fuel and building material.
"I never saw such a transformation in my life as has taken
place north of the Peace river during the past few months. As soon
as the railway was in measurable
distance the homesteaders' shacks
began to appear^ and now their
are shacks in every direction, as
far  as the eye can reach."���Fix.
Bulkley Valley Coal
Considerable interest is being
taken in the development work begun by Frank X. Frank on his
coal property on Hudson Bay
mountain. Mr. Frank has built a
wagon road from Lake Kathlyn to
the coal out oroppings at the foot
of the glacier, a distance of 2f
miles. This road is second to none
in B.C. as to scenery and condition. Mr. Frank is opening up
and developing six different seams.
The coal is all of anthracitic formation. The seam moet developed
���the Ballard seam���is opened up
to about 40 feet and the coal is
very similar to Scrantou, Pa., coal,
in quality and appearance. The
operator firmly believes that the
coal is "an Al smelting coal" and
needs not be coked. It is smokeless and hence the desired domes
tic fuel.���Omineca Herald.

Bob Cunning has been tearing
down a portion of the old Filbert
hotel in Sandon in order to get
lumber to be used in constructing
buildings at the Mercury mine.
Geo. E. McCready has taken a
lease on the dumps of the Antoine
mine again for this season and with
Pete Colgan is digging them over
in search of shipping ore. The
Antoine is situated in the Mc-
Guigan basin.
Judge Linsley and G. A. Carlson of Spokane, accompanied by
H. J. Pierce, of Seattle, were local
visitors the latter part of last week,
having been making an examination at the Payne. It is likely that
development work on this property
in which they are interested, will
be underway again soon.
A great deal of activity is apparent around the Ruth mill, at Sandon, which is being overhauled preparatory to resuming operations
after lying idle for about five years.
Practically all of the interior of the
building is being renewed, and the
milling machinery put in Bhape for
production. In the case of the
jigs these are being renewed entirely, the old ones having been found
in such shape as to be unfit for service. Of the changes outside the
mine the next largest is the construction of a 3,000 foot tram between the mill and No. 5 level of
the Hope. The material used in
this is second hand but quite ser-
vicable, having been brought down
from Ferguson. The tramline will
have fonr towers and almost parallels the tram that has connected
the Ruth mine and the mill for
years, but will set a little to tbe
north. The few hundred feet of
tram between the Ruth workings
and the concentrator is to be taken
up and will be ran at right angles
from tbe No. 3 level of the Hope
to th6 No. 5 level, where it will
connect with the longer tram to
the mill. No. 2 and No. 1 level
of tbe Hope will be connected with
the tram terminal at No. 3 level by
a light railway, which will circle
around the east side of the Ruth
mill, thus making the handling of
ore from all the levels of the Hope
mine to the mill or railway an inexpensive matter, notwithstanding
up to the present no general scheme
of underground connection has so
far been started.���Kaslo Kootenaian.
How to Keep Well
Now that spring has arrived and
summer is coming on, the question
of "What to Eat" is a very important one. Perhaps the most
important thing to take up next to
the diet for the young is the diet
for the elderly. Both need careful
attention. Elderly people are just
as Careless in their ways as child
ren with the added arguments that
they know better. Good judgement on the part of the elderly in
the selection of a proper diet accompanied by the right kind of
clothing, Bleeping in a well ventilated room away from draughts,
perfect eliminatfou, internal bathing and the avoidance of those articles of food that are pasitively
dangerous, ought to bring abont a
perfect state of health and long
livety. One cannot set down any
bard and fast rales of diet for the
elderly, as each person must adapt
the advice to her or his particular
case. Many cannot digest or assimilate foods that others can eat
with perfect immunity. Without
any question, the one thing that
seems to agree with the elderly is
buttermilk. It is nutritions, digestible and without question promotes the digestion of other foods
and aids longevity. vAs a core,
buttermilk has not all the numer
ous virtues ascribed to it by many
medical authorities. That it aids
digestion, tones up weak stomachs
and cures many ills there is no
doubt. The juices of many of the
fresh fruits are valuable, cleansing
and purifying. The juices act
much better and do not disturb the
stomach as when the whole fruit is
eaten. The fruits which seems
particularly adapted to the elderly
ere pineapple, orange and grape.
Pineapple juice is especially valuable in aiding digestion and the
juice is better adapted to the elderly on account of the pulp being
woody, haid to digest and apt to
injure the teeth. Elderly people
should eschew fried and greasy
foods, rich pastry and spicy viands
and stick to young chicken and
rare tender meats. Soups are not
to be recommended, being composed of the boiled juices of the
meat and favor a uric acid disposition. Boiled fish, baked fish,
grilled bacon, rare roast beef and
lau.b and three minute eggs are
recommended. If milk is assimilated and digested it is a valuable
adjunct to the diet and is better
appreciated if a little vichy is added
to it. Egg and milk is good. Too
much attention cannot be paid to
vegetable foods for they are nutritious and invaluable on account
of the fact they contain earthy
phosphates. Of these, string
beans, spinach, fresh salads plentifully sprinkled with pure olive oil
and a slight dash of good vinegar
or lemon juice are the best. Stewed onious and celery, carrots and
other succulent vegetables when in
season in moderation are to be
Fresh bread should be avoided
and whole wheat and toasted bread
is of the most value. If the teeth
are bad or inefficient the food
should be gronnd or chopped. On
account of the digestive organs in
the elderly being scarce of digestive ferments, food in the cereal
line needs more heat in the cooking to make the starch grannies
more susceptible to digestion and
for this reason many of the pre-
digested manufactured foods on
the market are of great value.
Stewed fruits make an acceptable
addition to the' diet, like prunes,
apricots and peaches, and in the
cooking a small piece of lemon
should be added to neutralize the
sugar, or.if any acidity is present,
add a small quantity of bicarbonate of soda���a quarter of a tea-
spoonful to the pound of fruit is
the proper measure. These measures obviate gastric fermentation
and acidity. Desserts made of
eggs and stale bread, Indian meal,
arrowroot, sago and ground rice
well baked are valuable articles of
diet, as is macaroni cooked with
milk and baked with a slight quantity of mild - cheese good. Don't
neglect the daily nse of some kind
of fresh vegetables so as to avoid
scorbitus which is very prone to
take place in the elderly. Avoid
too much of fresh pork, smoked
meats and too young veal. Above
all, don't forget the daily use of
The habit of drinking plentifully
of pure water between meals
should be encouraged and on arising and retiring. Flush t he body
by drinking plenty of water, in^
stall a perfect system of washing
both the Outside and the inside of
the body and seek to bring about a
perfect functioning of all the organs of secretion and elimination.
With this going on the terrors of
old age can be warded off and one
can live to be a hundred.��� Ex.
