The Glamor of Mining
There is a wholesale liquor dealer
in Chicago who has reason to believe that some mining stocks are
worth money. Years ago he trusted an Arizona saldou-keeper to the
extent of ��4000 and, when prohibition came, lost his money aud all
hope of recovering it. The saloonkeeper was however^ au honest
man and made ernest effort to settle his debts. Among his possessions was a certificate for 4000
shares of block, worth one dollar
par, bub then selling afc considerable less, This he offered feo his
Chicago creditor and the latter,
seeing that he might go further and
get less, a. cepted it in full payment
of the debt. Two we< ke ago ho

A word about Mr. Norcross.
He may be anywhere from 25 to
40. He graduated in 1905, and
before that he was a star qunrter-
back m his university team.
Squarelv, but not heavily built,
his profile is an exact replica of
that of President Wilson, as seen
in some of.the caricatures. Mr.
Norcross has full charge of the
company's mines both at Greenwood and Copper Mountain. He
is the type of man who is said to
radiate confidence and energy
among his men. I saw enough
of hiin in action today to accept
that statement without reservation. Yet his manr-er is quiet
and absolutely devoid of bluster
or pose When I'.suggested he
was a young man for such responsibilities he replied that he had a
good balance wheel in the general
manager, Mr. Lachmund. who it
is said, confesses to fifty summers.

For Happiness
The world's idea of happiness is
that it is a thing to be grasped.
The "pursuit of happiness" is f��
phrase that belongs to this idea.
Happ'.uess must be run after ant/
snatched. It can be lost'asquicklv
as gained. It in, above all things,
unsure. Others can takehappines?
away from the peison who has
grasped it. Those]Who'have t-hc
power of giving it to one's^life may
refuse to do so, and then there is
au end of all hope 'of "it. Thep<:
conceptions all belong to the world'-
thought of the matter. They i.>'i.i..
happiness a doubtful.'fugitive'tiling
impossible to gain without help
from circumstances, and liable
he lost in a moment.     \. '[
Bub there Is air-other idea of
happiness���that it is a thing to be
given. In this thought, thero i.s
no such thing as a 'pursuit after
happiness. It cannot b . 'enjoyed
by snatching or striving. It exists,
enduringly, and can be entered into at will. No other human being
has power over it, to take it away.
Circumstances have little or nothing to do with it. Far from being
fugitive, it has the serenity ^of an
immortal thing.
Sidney Smith, wit and philosopher, came near captrring the
secret of happiness in Vsingle sentence when he" said, '"When" you
rise in the morning, form a resolution to make the day a' happy uu��
to a fellow creature." This rule
followed daily, will soon warm and
irradiate" the heart with abiding
joy. Another sage, in'his saying,
"Know how to replace in ' your
heart, by the happiness of those
you love, 'the' happiness'tbafe may
be wanting to yourself," fails to
give a complete thoughts-for the
true happiness-giver does nob stop
with a'email 'circle thatj's beloved,
bub gives'lo all,"even'the" ignorant,
and unthankful, and never has
happiness wanting. Tried for a
year, this rule will change any sad
life'to a'life of joy.*4]' To criticize ib
before trying is valueless; to try it
is'to prove it.
SMOKE THIS
An editor in one Colorado toy/n
asked the editor in a . neighboring
town for an article explaining why
out. town can be';the best, and this
is what he received in reply:
"Your town is the best town in
the world if everybody in it only
thinks.s?, and thinks hard enough.
Ib all rests with the individual.
If every man is convinced tha* h
is the best, he is bound to'make i*
the best. With each..individual <\"
j the same mind it is. difficult to re-
i tard the progress of that town and
that community in which it is
located..:  ...
"On the other hand, if a maj >r.

opinion that their town is the
worst, and sympathize with theni-
s-dves for having to live in such a
place, you can make up your mind
that if it isn't the worst place on.

���Spokane Mining Truth.
1     A coal mine is   being  developed
at Seaton, on the line of the  G. T
P., and the manager has gone  east
to raise more capital.
Near Cody .'50 men are working
at the Noble Five, and the mill
will run in the spring. Ore in this
mine has been found at a depth of
3000 feet.
The Spanish group afc Alice Arm
has beou bonded to men connected
with (.lanby. It is said that the
price is 8100,000. The values are
principally silver.
Tbe Chambers group in the Slocan has been leased and bonded to
J. Y. Kessler for three years.
lve.sslcr was one uf the original
locators of the Ruth.
M. C. Sullivan of Trail has been
appointed superintendent; of the
new smelter, at Kellogg, Idaho.
This is probably a better position
than being a member of the B. C.
Legislature.
The old Washington mine in the
Slocan, will be re-oponed next
spring. Ib is said that the
lower workings contain 40,000
tons of zinc ore. In the winter at
'03 94 the Washington and the
Mountain Chief were the only
mines in the Slocan shipping ore.
At that time the ore was sledded to
to Kaslo.
All the plans for extraction,
shipment, and treatment of the ores
on Copper Mountain will be submitted to the directors in February
for approval. When that has been
done it is expected that installation
will be so far along iu ten months
that the mining of about 2000 tons
per day will be undertaken. It is
for that the development work now
proceeding is being done. Two
thousand tons per day will be the
first output bufe that will be increased to 4000 tons within a year
after the treating plants have been
installed.
The ore will first be concentrated
by"the oil flotation system and ife is
figured to cost from 50 to Go cents
per ton. A railway will be built
to the mines from near Princeton.
Whether it will be put in by one
of the roads operating in the valley
or by the B. C. Copper Co. is not
yet decided. A smelter is to be
established somewhere between the
mine and Princeton convenient to
the handling of coke, which will
come either from Coalmont or Merritt.
All the company's calculations
are based upon ore carrying If per
cent, copper at 13 cents per pound,
which in view of the grade of ore
already known and the present
condition of the metal markets is a
pretty safe basis to figure upon.
When the company is mining
4000 tons a day and treating and
smelting it in the district there
will be several thousand men
directly and indirectly employed.
This will mean that at the forks of
the Tulameen and Similkameen a
very important; centre of population will be builfe up. Princeton
will be a city of several thousand
with a big and growing trade now
within easy reach of the coast cities
over the Kettle Valley and Great
Northern railways. All this will,
unless something unforseen occurs,
he an actuality within the next
eighteen months.���-Daily Province.
