The Eureka Placer Mining Co.,
which is  operating on  the North
Fork of Rock Creek B. C, has been
washing out   considerable   quantities of coarse gold of late, some
of which   has   been   brought   to
Molson the past  week.    Some of
the gold flakes were almost as large
as a dime,  and had snch a strike
been made   in   Alaska   or   some
other distant corner of the earth it
would have caused   a stampede.
Frank Houghton, one of the owners of the property says the coarse
gold is being taken  from au old
river bed and thafe they have as yet
hardly gotten into the pay  streak
but are only just coming into the
margin of the old river bed  and
have just reached the edge of bedrock;     They   have   eight   claims
staked out, have installed a sluice
box, and are taking water from al
lake located on the hill about 200
feet  above.     The   water   having
such a great fall makes it an ideal
hydraulic mining, proposition.-   A
number of men are at work on the
proposition and as soon as they
get in  a  little further some big
nuggets   are   expected   to   be encountered.     A good  deal of fine
gold  is. being obtained   from the
surface sand and gravel which is
being run through the sluice box,
but the coarse gold is coming from
the small space of bed-rock  uncovered.
Three hack-loadss of Molson
people drove oyer to the claims
last Sunday and each member of
the party took his turn at panning
out the yellow metal.
All indications point to some
rich diggings'being opened up on
the creek.���Molson Leader.

Does a grubstake hold good for
one prospecting  trip   or   indefinitely, is the principal question- in
the supreme conrt action brought
by Robt. E.  Allen,  against S. N.
Long of Francois Lake,  B.C.,  in
which   the   plaintiff   demands   a
declaration that he is entitled to a
one-half    interest   in   the   Silver
Standard group of claims valued
between one and two  million  dollars.    It appears that daring the
spring of 1908 Allen grubstaked
Long and sent him up north  on a
prospecting trip.    During the trip
Long staked eight claims in the
Caribou mountains   and   because
Allan had Btaked him.  Long gave
the plaintiff an interest.    After doing assessment work on the group
the proposition  did  not prove as
promising as it first appeared and
it was dropped.
Then in 1910 Geo. McBean and
Samuel N. Long went out for a
prospecting trip and staked what
is known now as one of the richest
"grounds" in this province, at
New Hazelton. They sold six
claims of the Silver Standard
group of claims for 875,000 and
now Allen has brought an action
claiming that as he had grubstaked t-_e defendant he is entitled
to the first big find proving good
that the defendant makes. It will
be for the court to decide one* of
the most important questions in
mining in this, province and that
is, "how long does a grubstake
hold the man who is grub-staked
responsible to the man who puts
up the money for the prospecting
trip?' '-^n-ineca Herald.

High Life in Peru
Prof. Alsworth Ross of the University of Wisconsin in an* article
in the Century Magazine entitled
"Pern, the Roof of the Continent,"
tfflls of the difficulty of merely sustaining life in the nighest altitudes
among the Andes.   He says:
Life at Cerro de Pasco, nearly a
league up, is as trying as life nnder
a diving bell at the bottom of the
ocean. The newcomer gasps for
air like a stranded fish, and wakes
up at night gulping moutbfuls out
of the thin atsmophere. Three
quick steps put you out of breath,
and after climbing a flight of stairs
you must sit down for a rest. "I
know," panted a "tenderfoot how
Tfeel whenFmTeighty."
No employee is sent up by the
company unless he has passed a
physician's examination, but ocas-
ionally one gets blue in the face
and has to be sent down forthwith
Thus the Inca Chronicle often has
such items as, "Jake L., who returned here last April, has been
sent home with his heart machinery in bad shape."
The young fellows play tennis
and ball, and even indulge in track
athletics; but the pace must be
very slow. Singing is not popular,
for you cannot get the breath to
hold a note. Pneumonia is sure
death here within forty-eight
hours, so that the sufferer must be
rushed down to sea level in a special train that costs the company
$500: The typhoid patient, too,
and the northern women must descend to Lima to bear their babies.
The mining company's Americans are usually big, athletic,
deep-chested men, Btrong of jaw,
sinewy Of grip, and masterful of
manner. They are well paid and
looked after, hut too many of them
squander money and vitality in
fighting off the demon* of loneliness.
How Many For You?
How much sleep do we require?

try and secure more subscribers.
In B. C. during May 1,509 families received reliof, and if the war
^lasts much longer it will be neces-
-pary to raise more than is coming
in, hence every effort should be
made to increace the subscriptions
to this laudable and humane Fund.
Slocan Mining !
This week the Standard mill
started running three shifts. Owing to the C.P.R. as yet being unable to furnish cars and barges
promptly tbe shipments are only
twelve cars weekly, or about 480
tons. It takes two days to load a
barge of six cars. If the cars
were put in promptly the shipments would average from 18 to
20 cars a week. It is not probable
that the Steamer Slocan will be
able to do this in addition to her
regular service and also handle
other Four mile shipments at the
Silverton slip and wharf. With
the large number of properties
working in the vicinity of Silver-
ton this season it is not improbable
that the shipments from that point
will reach between forty and fifty
oars a week.
There is greater activity in mining in the vicinity of Sandon than
there has been for twelve years.
With a dozen shipping mines and
three concentrators Sandon should
soon begin to hum.
Work was started on the Queen
Bess this week by Cunningham
and Keane, who have a bond on
the property. The Quean Bess
adjoins the Idaho-Alamo group.
A shipment was made last week
from the Enterprise, Ten-mile, by
Ed. Shannon, Pat Maguire, Olaf
Donvold and John Olson, who
have a lease on the property.
It is expected that the Echo,
adjoining the Standard group and
under bond to J. H. Thompson,
will shortly join the district shippers.
W. J. McMillan has a car of
antimony ore ready for shipment
from the Alps group on the North
Fork of Carpenter creek.
About two cars of ore are ready
for shipment at the Molly Hughes,
one from the lease and one by the
owner.
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting company has resumed
work at the Ottawa mine near
Slocan City.
Jack and J. D. Mclnnes have a
car of ore ready for shipment at
the Buffalo. Four-mile.
Eight men are employed by
the Consolidated on the Lucky
Thought, Four-mile.
The Wakefield, Four-mile, will
make a car shipment early this
month.���Slocf��n Record.
One of our local and most
patriotic citizens says: "Do you
people who have settled in this
country, for the benefits yon, can
derive by living here realize, that
if you do not do yonr duty to the
government, and help in every
possible way towards a successful
issue of the war, that you are robbing yonr own source of income.
The Empire is succoring you, and
to deny IHp is to act worse than an
ghoul on the battlefield, and that a
open enemy is a gentleman in comparison."

William J. Battison. a wool expert of Boston, smiled at an argument over schedule K.
"The trouble is," he said, "that

"Srnithson's���that isn't their

Where Was John?
We owe the use of chloroform
chiefly to Sir James Young Simpson, son of an obscure baker. Afe
the age of 14, James entered Edinburgh University and at 19 he was
a qualified surgeon; and at 21 he
wrote M. D. after his name.
Before Simpson's day an operating room was like a butcher's
shambles. A patient was laid,
screaming with terror, on the operating table. Surgeons were unnerved and made awful "bungles"
of their work. There is recorded
one subject for amputation on
whom the approaching horrors fell
so vividly that at the glint of the
operating knife he flung himself off
the operating table and fled from
the room. "Chank God, he's
gone!" exclaimed the surgeon.
Simpson was so horrified at the
terrible agony a woman Buffered
under an operation that he nearly
gave up his profession. In 1847
he used chloroform for the first
time and thanked God for his discovery.
One would have thought the
world wonld have run with joy
over the lessening of human suffering. But the use of anaesthetics
was bitterly opposed. It was contended that pain is a just infliction
of the Most High which it is impious to avert. Nay, eome divines
went so far as to assert that the
cries of those in pain are pleasing
to God. Simpson met these gentry
on their own ground by quoting
from Genesis: "And the Lord
God caused a deep sleep to fall
upon Adam, and he slept; and He
took one of his ribs and closed up
the flesh thereof." Not to be
beateu, the theologian replied that
Dr. Simpson surely forgot that the
deep Bleep of Adam took place before the introduction of pain into
tbe world, during his state of innocence.
At the birth of a royal prince,
Queen Victoria used chooroforin.
After that it use was to some extent sanctioned. Bat in the Crimea
the chief medical officer forbade its
use: "Pain is a wholesome stimulus to a soldier," he said.
Far different is the case today.
We have the consolation of knowing that on thousands of wounded
heroes merciful oblivion has fallen
in the hour of their agony owing
to the labors of James Young
Simpson.��� Er.
A woman whose husband had
been dead some years went to a
medium, who produced the spirit
of her dead husband.
"My dear John are yon happy"
said the widow to the spirit.
"I am very happy" John replied.
"Happier than yon were on
earth with me?" she asked.
"Yes was the answer j "_t am
far happier now than I was on
earth with yon."
"Tell me, John, what is it like
in heaven?" ���-.,.. . .
' 'Heaven:" said John, ^Tm no*
in heaven."
