Alexander Robinson, president

Mining Co., and H. R. Moss, of

were in camp a couple of days,
leaving Saturday morning for
the Spokane Mining Congress.
Mr. Robertson is not a stranger
here, having visited Chesaw
about a year ago and holds a
lease on the Review group, north
of town. Mr. Moss is au expert
in reduction and extraction processes, and the visit of the gentlemen to Chesaw to look over
the Review has a very significant
tinge, in the opinion of the casual observer. They took out a
considerable quantity of samples
with them and we. anxiously
await deyelopments. At present Mr. Robertson is opening1 up
a silver-lead property, the Deer
Trail, in Cedar Canyon, near
Turk, in lower Stevens county,
and is installing 100-ton mill.
It is in this capacity that Mr.
Moss is with Mr. Robinson, and
he believes that they are putting
in a plant that will save 95 per
cent of the low grade values by
cyaniding and concentration.
Mr. Moss says approximately 65
per cent of the silver values will
be recovered by straight cyaniding.���Chesaw News.

Another Hero Dog
Toots, a fox terrier, once saved
a passenger train on the Lacka-
wana Railroad from being wrecked
near Bloouifield, N. J.
The crossing-tender^ in addition
to raising aud lowering the gates,
was required to attend to the
switch, there being only a single
track from Bloomfield to Mont
clair. On the day in question a
westbound train was approaching
and the gateman dropped his. red
Hag and ran to throw a switch.
At the same time an eastbound
passenger train was rounding the
curve and coining down grade towards the crossing.
Toots who had spent much time
around the flag shanty and who
was familiar with the duties,
seized the flag in his teeth-and ran
up the track. The engineer saw
the danger signal and stopped his
train just in time to prevent a
collision.
Toots died recently afe the advanced age of fifteen and was
buried with honors.

Today's Oddest Story
Dalls, Tex.���Ofeto H. Lang,
street commissioner, when asked
by a young man in his department
for a raise, told him he didn't deserve a raise because he did nofe do
any work afe all during the year.
Lang proved his assertion like this:
Each year has 365 days. Yon
sleep eight hours each day, which
equals 122 days. This leaves 243
days. Yon rest eight hours each
day, which equals 122 days. This
leaves 121 days. There are fifty-
two Sundays that yon do nofe work
or 52 days. This leaves 43 days.
You have one 8nd a half hours
each day for lunch, or 28 days'.
You get two weeks' vacation each
year or 14 days. This leaves one
day, and this being the Fourth of
July we close on that day, so
you've done no work at all. '
Death usually occurs as a result
of failure of heart, failure'of respiration, weakness, failure of the
pneumogastric nerve or shock.
Almost always the nerve centres
in the upper part of the spinal
cord are the controlling factors
rather than the organs themselves.
In general, the process of death
begins at the outer surface of the
nervous system and ends >\% the
centre, and so the symptons of
approaching death are generally
first observed at the outer surface
and later can be traced to the
centre. Smell is the first dense to
go; then follows taste and sight,
and hearing last. THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.

Good Teeth Foods
Huge Zinc Smelter
Mining activity in the Crows'
Nest Pass and Southeastern B. V.
has been given a great boost by the
war, and on top of the present
activity now comes along a report
that the old zinc smelter at Frank
is likely to be re-opened for the
smelting of zinc ores from the B.C.
metal lields.
With the weekly order for 100
tons for the Russian government
in their hands, a B. C. company is
already organized to get fehe Frank
plant in working order with the
least possible delay. Just who is
behind the company it is hard to
say. One report has it that Sir
Richard McBride, Mr. Curtiss, a
coast financier and other B. C.
capitalists are backing the proposition. Another is thafe the Canadian Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., of Trail, B. C, in which
are interested a number of C P.R.
officials, is undertaking the rejuvenation of the zinc industry in
this part of the world. The most
authentic report the Herald has
been able to obtain is that the former parties are busy, Mr. Curtiss,
it is understood, in New York at
present, that the crushing and
other machinery for the plant has
been purchased and that a super-
intendant for the plant has been 1
secured.
Ife is also stated ou good author-'
ifey fehat that the coke company at;
Coleman, two stations west of
Frank, has already enlarged its
plant from S0O tons to 1,000 tons
in readiness for the increased demand for coke which is used in the
zinc smelting process.
Tbe revival of the zinc smelting
industry in The Pass is one of fehe
most important bits of industrial
news given out for a longtime.
While it will not affect Lethbridge
directly, there will be an indirect
benefit through the increased demand for wholesalers' supplies
which are distributed from here.
The old zinc smelter at Frank iB
located almost afe the foot of Goat
Mountain,   west    of    the   Turtle
Mountain   slide.      It   was   built
eight years ago by  a company  of
and help himBelf.    Is it any won- mining men who are interested in
der that B.   C. is  falling behind?]mining properties in the.Kootenays.    The plant cost in  fehe neighborhood    of    $500,000,    bufe   the
machinery was not up to date and
the   demand  at the time did not
warrant the operation of the plan fe

Falling Behind
A pamphlet issued by the Mining Department of B.C. is entitled
"The Mining Province of Canada."
The B. C. administration is strong
on this class of advertising���boost
stuff that is not born out by facts.
It has resulted in the public discrediting all classes of B.. C. advertising.
British Columbia ought to be the
mining province of Canada for she
has beeu in the business for 50
years; she has gigantic mineralized
areas; great and numerous water
powers; three transcontinental railways and 1,000 miles of coast line
for transportation facilities; yet
she has fallen to second 'place
among the mineral provinces of
Canada���and   a   poor   second   at
that.
Twelve years   ago Ontario had
no   mining���not   even   a   Mining
Act.    Today her  mineral  production is just about double the value
of British  Columbia's.    It is true
that Ontario has had the benefit of
high grade silver and gold ores,
bub in 1915 these represented only
about one-third of the mineral Dut-
pufc of that   province.    The   real
difference between the mining of
the two provinces.is that Ontario
has   accepted   her    opportunities,
while British Columbia has neglected  them.     The Ontario Mining
Department  has  faith;  the B. C.
Mining    Department     has    not.
When Ontario finds a new mineral
district she develops it,   but British Columbia has scores of districts
in which she has made no effort to
encourage development.    Ontario
has mining courses in- her universities   and mining classes in   her
high schools.    She is turning out
her own  mining   men  and   even
sending tbem abroad:  British Columbia does not believe, in teaching mining to her nativejsons. but

for ife makes teeth for calves.
Good meat will, for it makes them
for young lions and wolves. Good
vegetables, nnts and fruits will,
for it   makes them  for monkey*3.
Good corn, oats, barley, wheat,
rye and, indeed, everything thafe
grows, will make good teeth, if
taken in their natural state, no
elements being taken out, for
everyone of them makes good
teeth for horses and cows.
But starches and sugars and lard
and adulterated foods will noti
make good teeth; therefore a wise
mother will keep from very young
children pastry, whifce bread, cakes
and tea, and will give them instead
good milk, whole wheat bread,
cereals,  meatp,   eggs,  ripe   fruit,

Every mother should remember
that the duty of giving her child
useful, and strong teeth devolves
upon her.
Without good teeth there can
be no thorough mastification; without thorough mastification there
can be no perfect digestion; without
perfect digestion there cannot be
proper aBBimilafeion; without proper assimilation there can be no
nutrition; without nutrition there
cannot be health, and without
health, what is life worth? Hence,
the importance of the teeth.
The human mouth, says a writer
in the Dental summary, presents
most favorable conditions for
growth of Germs if remnants of
food are: allowed to remain there.
The moisture and the natural
warmfehare exactly suited to all
sorts of dangerous microbes. A
Germ-laden toothbrnsh is a menace
to tbe heelth; it should be kept
thoroughly clean, and often renewed.

About Float
Float is not a periodical.
It is a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
is filled with sketches and
stories of western life. It
tells how a gambler cashed
in after the flush days of
Sandon ; how it rained in
New Denver long after
Noah was dead; how a
parson took a drink at
Bear Lake in early days ;
how jnsti"e was dealt in
Kaslo in '93; how the
saloon man oufeprayed fehe
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically depicts the
roamings of a western
editor among the tender-
feet in the cent belt. It
contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention. Send for
one before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,

Grouse Mountain
The Cassair CrOwn Copper Co.
who have tbe bond on what is
known as the Louis Sohorn property, Grouse mountain, have
made preparations for going on
with their development work this
.season again. The principal work
will be driving a 500 foot cross cut
tunnel to strike the lead aba depth
.of 250 feefe.
The work will probably start
early in the month of May or
j-ooner if the weather will permit.
Last year the company sank a
shaft for a considerable depth, bat
were flooded out. Ife being late in
the season and not having sufficient machinery to keep the water
pumped out it waa decided to
abandon that work for the present.
The ore taken out of the bottom
of the shaft showed $7.09 0* cop-

Many Lethbridge people have
been through the extensive build
ings on visits to Frank. There
are two large wings, one of which
is 3y0 feet by 40 feet and the other
almost as large. The buildings
are of brick and stone, and are in
a good state of repair. The ovens
are all intact and capable, ife is
understood, of handling 2,000 tons
of ore daily.
The Frank plant was the first
zinc smelting plant in Canada,
Up till quite recently zinc ores
have had to be sent to the Gng-
genheims of Colorado for smelting-
It. is odderstOod, however, that
the Trail smelter has lately equipped a small zinc smelting plant,
but if the Frank proposition goes
through most of the zinc matter
will be brought from the British
Columbia smelter to the Frank
smelter for the final process.���
