A number,of properties in B. C.
have been tied up under what
might be called "The Spokane
Lease and Bond." This form of
agreement is a cinch in the hands
of the shoestring promoter?, and
allows him to hold a property for
a number of years for speculative
or promotion purposes without investing a cent, and without a protecting clause, when development
is done and wages unpaid. Several properties in the Slocan are
now tied up under this "heads I
win, tails you lose," form of
agreement. Property owners should
either pay a lawyer to protect their
interests or have nothing whatever to do with the cinch bond.
They should also have a clause inserted in the bond that an amount
sufficient to meet the payroll must
be deposited in the local bank the
first of each month, and the money
to be, used for that purpose only,
the bond lapsing on failure to
comply with any of the conditions
of tbe agreement.���Slocnn Record.

Smelter Rumors
Rumors are still current in mining circles that a large concern
whose name has not been given to
the public is still investigating the
possible amount of ore tributary to
Merritt, with a view, it is said, to
the establishment of smelting
works at some point near the coal
fields. In any event, it is perhaps
significant that considerable activity is being noted among mining
men, and engineers representing
several large concerns have visited
the copper properties of this district recently,
In speaking of the possible tonnage available in this district at
the present time, a mining man
who declines to have his name
mentioned at the present moment,
stated that he was satisfied that
within" another year development
on a number of properties tributary to Merritt would have progressed to the point where it would
be possible to know to know to a
definite certainty what properties
could be depended upon for ore,
and the possible amount each
could contribute to a smelter. ��� At
the present time, it .was pointed
out, none of the properties have received enough development to
demonstrate their possible value as
producers. It is admitted, however,- by every , mining man who
has made, examinations in this district, that there are a nu mber of
exceptionally promising properties
tributary to Merritt.���Merritt Herald;
Elbert Hubbard once submitted
this: 'flknow: That I am here,
in a world where nothing is permanent but change, and that in a
degree I can change the form of

And that I am influenced by these

work of men who are no longer
alive. And that the work I now
do will in a degree influence people who may live after my life has
changed into other forms; that a
certain attitude of mind and habit
of action on my part will add to
the peace, happiness and well-be--
ing of other people, and that a

part will bring pain and discord to'
others, and that if I would secure

The Boy With a Patch
A touching bit of truth was recently written by the editor of a
-Missouri weekly. The incident is
described as follows, according to
an exchange:
"We met a little fellow the
other day about eight years old
who wanted to sell us a magazine,
and as he turned away we noticed
a. nice, neat patch on his clothes
right where patches usually are on
boy's clothes. We called him
back and bought the paper���because of the patch.
. "Whenever we see a patch like
that we let our imagination go,
and can picture a woman���a neat
woman���with a rather tired, but
happy look; she is sitting by a
work table putting a patch on her
little boy's pants. She seems to
1 .ike great pride in the work and
a 4 she comes to the eud of the
r.and seam, she goes slower, as if
hhe wished to prolong the excuse
to handle the garment. Then
after biting off the thread she
holds them at arm's length with a
look which only that kind4 of a
woman ever has, and sighing lays
t'nem over a chair at the little bed,
and bending over the little sleeper
phe shakes her head and says:
4:Do you know you are a lot of
trouble, yon little scamp. God
bless my little boy���God bless
him.' If there is an answer to
prayer, and there surely is, God
must bless tbe little boy with the
patch���and doubly bless the little
mother who put it on."

Zinc ore and concentrate shipments from this district are expected to show a big inorease during
the coming year.
J. P. Keane, who is operating
the zinc concentrator at Rosebery,
is endeavoring to enlist the aid of
Slocan mining men in the establishment of a zinc smelter.
An assay of ore from the Evening Star, near Three Forks, and
owned by J. G. Ryan, which was
made at New Denver recently,
gave 10G8.S oz. in silver.
Surveys are to be made shortly
on behalf of the Antoine Mines,
Ltd., of the underground workings of the Rambler-Cariboo, with
a view to ascertaining how close
some of the workings of the latter
company are to the side lines of
the property of the former company.
H. MacPherson, of Trout Lake,
but who has lately moved to Gerrard for the winter, is considering
plans for interesting Great Northern shareholders in the active development of that property. The
Great Northern mines are situated
near Ferguson and Trout Lake,
and is considered as one of the
most promising of the big low
grade deposits of the north end.
According to information received from H. Park, who is interested in the Kaslo group, located
up the South Fork of Kaslo creek,
and which is under bond to Spokane parties, development work
next spring will be commenced by
the driving of a three hundred foot
tunnel on the vein so as to get
under the showing of rich ore uncovered on the surface. Apparently the differences that formerly existed between the several parties,
interested in the bond have been
satisfactorily adjusted.
Something in the nature of a
sensation has been occasioned by
the ofler made by Charles F. Caldwell to the Utica directorate to
take up 250,000 shares Of Utica
treasury stock at 20 cents per
share, provided he can get an option on 600,000 shares of stock
held by individual shareholders at
8c. per share. This in effect means
that Caldwell is willing to pay
about eleven cents per share for
850,000 shares, while the ruling
price is in the neighborhood of six
and seven cents.���Easlo Kootenaian.

For the present John McNeill of
this city, will be in charge of the
work. Aside from the U. S. and
the Bell, it is not probable that
any thing else can be done this
winter, as these properties have
ore bodies all opened up and ready
for stoping, and a considerable
amount of prospecting would have
to be done on the most of the
other claims, which are for the
most part undeveloped, even superficially.
In any event the battle with
snow on the Jackson wagon road
will be watched with interest to
see how it pans out, as many predict that the road cannot be made
"navigable" at tbis late time of
the year.���Kaslo Kootenaian.
In the Slocan
If the men can succeed in breaking their way up through the snow
and get in supplies and keep the
road open until shipping can be
started, the establishment of two
camps will be the next move, one
these being at the Bell mine and
the other- at the'U.S. mine. The
former has generally been considered, by those who are acquainted
with the ground, to show indications of being a second Lucky Jim.

when running to tap the main

The Snnset which lies on the

Tokyo's Dog Cemetery
London boasts of a dog's cemetery in one corner of Hyde Park;
but Tokyo is no longer behind
London. A large cemetery has
been established for the sole purpose of burying dogs and cats.
The cemetery was established by a
Mr. MatBusawa, a well-to-do merchant, who could not be consoled
for the loss of his pet dog. He has
been inspired at last with the idea
of providing a burial place not
only for hiB own dog but also for
the whole canine kingdom. Such
is the origin of the cemetery.
There are already three or four
tenants in the enclosure. Nothing
is wanting in the way of burial
service, for a beautiful Buddhist
temple has been set up in the corner of the cemetery. Not only
burial service in the orthodox way-
is performed at the interment, but
.prayers will be read before the
newly-erected tomb in the morning and evening for forty-nine
days after the burial. Preparations-are now-being made for the
construction of a crematorium.
Carriages are also provided with
special hearses for the dead. The
