Seventeen. hundred feet has been  driven on tlie long tunnel of the Last  Chance, and with 50 feet more it is expected that the ledge will'be tapped.   .  E. F. Smith is sending ore samples of  the Silver Band group to England,  where he expects to-secure capital to  carry on development on  these claims.  News comes from the Lardeau that  a rich strike has buen made on thelvan-  h'oe group, on a lead with four feet of  ore which can be traced for 2,000 feet,  .carrying gold and silver values.  Geo... Hughes ^sent four men and-a  cook up to the. Idaho mines this week.  There'.a's nothing, definite when the  mines'will |StaVt.ed up, again. A little  development is being done in one of the  tunnels.  The American Boy.  The Hewitt is a Mine.  It has bee.n reported that the bond on  the Mountain Con has been thrown up.  Mr. Riehle, the manager, s,ay.s ho hns  not received any word from the head  office in London, Eng., regarding this  rumor. The Con was bonded for ������20,-  000 from XV. XV. Warner and two pavilion ts of .������5,000 each were met so far. In  development the company have spent,  about $10,000 and have not yet shipped  the ore taken out. Gil McLeod has finished his contract for titnneling, and for  the present the mine is shutdown until  the manager receives word from headquarters.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The Hewitt, in the heart of the Slocan  dry ore belt, is producing about 10 tons  of ore a day from development alone.  The entire crew of 40 men is working on  development and in operating the new  tram.  Work is ' well under way in three  levels. Results" have been highly satisfactory. In the No. 3 level the ore body  has widened to 35 feet. Part of this can  betaken out and sucked on the spot.  The rest is a concentrating ore. The  shipping stnIT runs from 35 to GO ounces  in silver and from 3foGJ.< per cent in  lead. It is practically a dry ore and is  in strong demand for fluxing nt the  Hall Mines smelter.  There'are 500 of rich ore sacked at  the mine, which is being shipped over  the tram. With th'iH and with the ore  being taken.ont in development it will  be perhaps three months before stoping  is commenced. I  This property has been working  steady for the past- eight months, except when the.tunnels were wet in the  spring. A large staff has been employed  ever since the mine has been working.  The,company have built a wagon road  to the Last Chance tram so as to be able  tosh ip over the tram. In one month  $10,000 of ore- was marketed, that  brought $100 to the ton. There is enough  ore 'blocked out in sight which would  take two years for the present staff to  handle. The development work and  stoping is being carried on so as to have  the mine in a position to ship heavily  and steadily. At the present time what  shipping is done is very. light.- The  Black Hawk claim, one of the group Is  being opened up. The carpenters have  finished building the new offices.

[Best  Cure for Several Diseases    is  an Attack  of Some Other  Disease.  "Set a microbe to catch' a microbe 'Vis likely, to become a medical proverb. The eases which led to  A he discovery are very intc'resting.  Come time ago, nt Brixton, London, a lady and her husband were  attacked by quinsy ' at, the same  time. When this was at its height  and the patients were almost choked  by the swelling in the throat, tbe  husband got a  BAD FIT OF THE GOUT  In his toe. This.turned out a blessing" in disguise. For, as if by magic,  his quinsy disappeared immediately.  The wife's quinsy showed no signs  of abatement, but ran the usual  course, thus proving that the gout,  in her husband's case, cured the  quinsy.  At South Kensington there lived  h. lady who suffered so severely from  dyspepsia that she was on the point  of losing her reason. Doctor after  doctor tried his'hand, but without  avail. But one day the-patient developed; eczema "on the back of the  neck. For the first time in ten years  she' felt hungry, ate a good .dinner,  ancffelt quite free from the-dyspepsia. When the eczema disappeared,  however, the indigestion returned.  Later on the eczema came back, and  the indigestion went. And the two.  diseases have continued ���������'- to' keep at  this see-saw lip to date.  Cholera is another cure for chronic dyspepsia. A gentleman lives in  North London who had to give up  his business, some .years ago, owing  to tlie terrible state of his stomach.  He happened to go to Hamburg  when .cholera  WAS RAGING IN THAT  city, and he was'stricken by;; the disease. He pulled through, and found  ,when he recovered, that his dyspepsia had gone.' Since then he has  been in perfect health, and says he  could dijjest horses-'-, hoofs,'Or even  boardhig-house roast beef.  But ranch more serious ailments  than dyspepsia have been cured by  other diseases, and so successful are  one or two of these strange remedies that they are being used in Germany at tlie present moment. The  German doctor has added to his |  pharmacopoeia the poisons of typhoid \  fever and erysipelas. Of course, he  uses them most carefully, gives the  smallest possible dose, watches how  it acts, and keeps it under strict  control.  Used with proper care and judgment, typhoid fever can be made to  cure diabetes. It is supposed that  tlie typhoid^ bacillus eats all the sugar, and causes some .mysterious  change which prevents the waste of  any more of this substance.  Typhoid fever also cures.  AN EXHAUSTING DISEASE  called leucocythaemia. This arises  from the presence of too many white  corpuscles in the blood. When the  typhoid germs enter the blood these  white corpuscles make instant war  on them, and the casualty lists are  so heavy that the patient is rid of  both enemies.  When anyone is afflicted with  rheumatism, nothing better could  happen to him than to got an attack of typhoid fever. Innumerable  cases are on record where people  crippled by most painful rheumatism  have been perfectly cured by typhoid  It has dried up many festering  sores over which antiseptic dressings had no influence; it has caused  the absorption and disappearance of  tumors, and may yet be turned to  account in the treatment of cancer.  It has also cured many cases of consumption. But its most successful  cures have been effected in the lunatic asylum. For a long time it  has been known to asylum physicians  that the most violent mania subsides when the patient gets some severe bodily disease. Cholera, erysipelas, and typhoid fever are especially effectual. This knowledge is now  "being turned to account, and when  all drugs, moral influence,' and the  great healer Time have failed, the  jpatieut  is given a dose of typhoid  bacilli. In a few days his madness  begins to fade away. And by the  time he is well enough to leave his  bed, he is perfectly sane once more.  But, though the cure is often permanent, it sometimes is effective  only for a few weeks or days.  Erysipelas holds the next place to  typhoid fever, and it is often used  by doctors as a -remedy .because of  the  ease  with  which  IT  CAN  BE  CONTROLLED.  Erysipelas has cured the worst  form of eczema of thirty years'  standing. This is a wonderful feat,  for eczema is one of the most intractable of diseases. But erysipelas  works greater' wonders. It has been  known to cure cancer, to cure lupus,  and many kinds of skin disease's. It  has permanently cured epilepsy, and  has removed a polypus from a man's  nose.  It would be supposed that nothing  good could be said of influenza. But  the wretched microbe of this disease  sometimes makes compensation for  the injury he does. In fact, he is a  most powerful curative agent at  times. A lady who had consulted  the doctors in London for severe  chronic catarrh got a bad attack of  influenza a. couple of years back, and  on the very day of the attack the  catarrh disappeared. Influenza has  cured clirpnic..brojichitis, and*, other  diseases) , and rimy', under '' pi'oper  control, become a very useful remedy.    .. ���������  . ,      .     -       .  Typhus fever is tbo terrible an  agent to employ voluntarily. But  when it comes of itself it sometimes  does good. An Indian Army officer  records that for many years his liver was so bad that he could scarcely  eat sufficient  TO KEEP IIIM ALIVE.  He had become mere skin and bone,  when, fortunately for him, he was  attacked by typhus fever. On recovering-from this he found his liver  in perfect order, and it has never  troubled him since. Typhus fever  also cures erysipelas, dropsy, consumption, and St. Vitus' dance.  Now, it has been shown that eczema cures dyspepsia, erysipelas  cures eczema, and typhus fever cures  erysipelas. Obviously, all we know  want, is something that will make  typhws*- fever liarmleiss, and. we,1 have  a" certain cure for dyspepsia." And to  a great many people this cure would  be cheaply bought at the cost of the  whole cycle of diseases.  Many' deaf people recover their  hearing for a time on getting a fit  of dizziness. And others, who suffer  severely .from dizziness, are relieved  by an attack of deafness. A girl in  a" London hospital was lately dying  from poverty of blood, when she got  an attack of scarlatina. This, instead of hurrying her to the grave,  cured her. A blind boy has had his  sight restored by smallpox. A child  on its last legs with whooping-  cough was saved by an attack of  measles'. A medical- man dying of  consumption was cured by a bad'attack of scarlatina.  -f-  TOBONTO'S    BIG     EXHIBITION.  The Prize List for Toronto's groat  Annual Exposition and Industrial  Fair; which this yearvwill be held  from August 26th to Sept. 7th, has  como to hand. It is printed in yellow shaded with green, and presents  a very handsome appearance. Upwards of $35,000 will be distributed  in premiums, and ������30,000 will be  spent in features and special attractions. The live stock classes have  been rearranged in some instances  and the premiums increased in others.  A class for French Canadian cattle  has been added. Copies of the Prize  List and all information desired can  be had on addressing H. J.'Hill, 82  King St. East,'-Toronto. Special  efforts are being made to increase  the excellence of the Exhibition this  year on account of the close proximity of the Pan-American.  Princess Maud can not only bind  books and nurse a sick patient  scientifically, but also sail a half-  rater, ride a bicycle, spin as well as  sew, play chess, and speak five  languages, including Russian. She  vies. with her mother, Queen Alexandra, in being an expert photographer, and sho is the Queen's favorite daughter..  THE  WORLD'S  GOLD.  Additions   That   Have  Been  Made  to  It In Recent Yearj.  The annual meeting of;, the Royal  Statistical Society was held on Tuesday in the rooms, Adelphi Terrace,  London , Lord -Avebury presiding,  says the London Telegraph. Afterward a paper was read'by Wynnard  Hooper on "The Recent .Gold Production of the World,'/ in which he  gave a statement of that production  in five yearly periods since the year  1851. showing the value of the mineral won, according to the various  standards of valuation. After remarking on the. way in which that  valuation had fluctuated, and on the  effect which-modern improved methods would be likely to have in the  gold fields where a large amount of  stuff even of inferior grade, was likely to be available, he showed the output of gold during tho last twenty  years, classifying if according to the  countries" of its origin. From this  it appeared that of the five great  gold producing areas, only Russia  seemed not progressive. The author  affirmed that, whatever the world's  stock might have been, there could  have been no material additions to  it until, at all events, within the  last fivo years and proba.bly till within the last five years only, but that  there was every probability of a material add"itiohyb'eing"'"''frlade 'within  the next five or ten years.  Taking the period of 1870 to JSSo,  Mr. Hooper showed that, assuming  the requirements of the arts and of  the coinage to be. say, ������20,000,000  a year, there could not,have been added, on balance, to the stock of gold  more than, say, ������1,000,000 a year,  or ������15,000.000 in the fifteen years  comprised in that period. Since  1885 there had ^been an increased  output, the average rising to ������26,-  366,000* a year during the decade  1S86 to '1895.' This' fact, standing alone, would suggest  during this period there Was  to stock some ������63,660,000.  Mr. Hooper argued that'������20,000,000  on the other side of the, account for  wear and tear and the demands  the arts, would.be too small to  lire during>a per-rod....;in.-, which  world wa'fe' sb'tprosperpus, and  cordingly'he argued that but ������38',-  660,000*could have been put by.  But things appeared, very -different  in regard to ihe figures' of the last  five years. During the quinquennium ending with the year 1900, the  average yield in.the goldfields was  nearly ������50,500,000.a;year, and thus  in the period as much as ������127,000,-  000 must have been added to the  world's gold stock.v Thus, for'the  first time sincc'.the year 1855, there  was an appreciable, addition. Mr.  Hooper did not think, even these additions, to stock-j had been sufficient  to bring about a; fall in the value of  gold. He-,~suggcsted. that in the period 1901-10 the average.'annual gold  output was likely to be nearer ������70,-  000,000 than ������.60,000,000 a year.  He pointed :out that changes in prices caused by alterations in the value  of gold must be necessarily much  smaller and must take place much  more slowly than those caused by al-  terations'in market conditions or by  improvements in the methods of production and. transportation..

A young fellow who was looking  for a clerkship was recently recommended to a city merchant by a  Glasgow gentleman.

They  Grow Discouraged and Prematurely Old.  From the Review, Windsor, Ont.  "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ,s the  only medicine that over gave me any  real benefit," said Mrs. it. K. Harris, a woli known resident of Windsor, to a representative of the Review recently. "I do not know exactly what my trouble was ; doctors seemed unable to tell me.  though I' thought myself it was consumption. I had a constant rack- ,  ing cough, and a constant feeling of  languidness. My blood seemed to  have turned to wa'.er. and J. was  very pale. T had a feeling in my  chest as though some foreign substance was lodged there. The slightest noise made me nervous ; I was  dejected all the time and could not  scarcely do any household work. I  tried. medicines, but they did not  help me in the least. Doctors did  not stfcm able to help me or tell me  what ailed me, although their bills  increased with alarming rapidity. I  grow- so-weak, and" so despondent  that finally i. dacidecl to take a trip  to Colorado to see if a change of "  climate would benefit me. While  contemplating this trip 1 read in a  paper one day the testimonial of a  person whose symptoms were almost  identical with my own. who was  cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I  decided, to give them a trial and  purchased a box. When that box  was done I got another, and found  gradually that the pills were helping  mo. The trip to Colorado was  abandoned, and I continued using the  pills until I had taken eight or nine .;  boxes when I felt like an altogether  different person. From a pale, thin,  listless person, I became the picture  of...health, and felt it too.' It is several years since I used the pills, and  I have not had any return of the  trouble. .1 am positive Dr. Wil-  liams7,;Pmk������(Pills, saved me. from an  early grave,;and -I ctvhnot.recommend r-.  them too highly to those who arc'  afflicted nsTLwas."  It is tlie mission of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills to make rich, red blood,  nourish the nerves, tissues and various organs ofthe body, and thus by  reaching the root of the trouble,  drive disease from the system. Other  medicines act only on the symptoms :  of the disease, and when such medicines are discontinued, the trouble  returns���������often in an aggravated  form. If .you'.. want health and  strength, be sure the full name, "Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for' Pale People," is on the wrapper around each  box. . If your dealer cannot supply  you the pills will'be sent postpaid  at 50 cents a box, or six boxes for  S2.50, by addressing the 1'r.

Although it would not, as a matter of fact, be necessary at this time  of^ day to introduce Mr. Chamberlain to Lord Salisbury, a ceremonial  almost as incredible would have been  ��������� indispensable a few years ago, says  Pearson's Weekly. If the late Mr.  Parnell, for instance, had encounter;  ed Lord Salisbury in private life  he would have required a formal introduction to the Premier, for these  two s great political leaders never  met ! Difficult as the fact is to believe it is undoubtedly true. For  sixteen years Mr. Parnell was a conspicuous member of the House of  Commons. Yet during the whole of  that time Lord Salisbury not only  did not speak to him, but never  once saw him! We have the statesman's own words for this, given in  - a public speech a little while before  the Irish leader died. The fact is  one of the most remarkable in the  history of public life.  Most of us have the idea that at  least the majority' of our public and  eminent men are personally known  to one another. tVe take this ' quite  for ' granted when the notabilities  are occupied with similar life interests and follow their pursuits almost side by side.  But to think so is to be often very  wide of the mark. There are several  cases almost as remarkable as that  of Lord Salisbury and Mr. Parnell.  How many people, will bejicvc, for  example, that Mr. Gladstone never'  spoke to Lord Melbourne'.' Yet this  is an assured truth.  FOR OVER TWELVE YEARS  these" two men -were in Parliamentary life together, cheek by jowl, as  it were. But they never spoke to  one another. 1,1 r. Gladstone never  ...'explained the fact, and it can only  be put down to a~ curious chance of  fate.; But it is wonderfully strange,  ft is not nearly so surprising to  know that Mr. Gladstone never saw  Prince,Bismarck. Most people, -however,'.would-say, off-hand, that these  : two great men met a hundred times  in;the course of their lives. Bismarck really knew so little of the  English statesman that he ��������� usually  spoke of him as "Professor.".,./  .To give one more strange; case  'from' . the world' of politics.;:��������� Lord  Salisbury has never spoken to Mr.  John Morley. This silence, of course  may be broken at any time, but it  has undoubtedly been preserved up  to the present. The Prime'Minister  has only once or twice been seen on  the floor of the Ilouse of Commons.  He was a member of the Lower  House as Lord Robert Cecil before  1868, but he has never been observed in the Peers' Gallery. This is a  record  in itself.  Modern history contains two or  three astonishing cases of famous  men who never met one another; or  if they met, .met as strangers.   -  NELSON AND WELLINGTON,  met only once, and on that occasion  neither knew the other. They had  encountered one another quite by  chance in Lord Bafhurst's waiting-  rpom, and there entered into casual  conversation. It is very interesting  to know that, each of them afterwards recorded the fact that he  thought the ' other "no common  man."  The Duke of Wellington never saw  Napoleon. Ho opposed him at the  head of the British army for six  years, but never met his great antagonist. Even at Waterloo the battle was lost and won without the  leaders of the strife once coming  close enough to see one another.  Public life is, full of mysteries of  a kind similar to these. AVhat ninety-nine peonlo out of a hundred consider must have inevitably happened,  in a surprising number of cases never happened at all! Is it easily credible, for instance, that the late  Lord Randolph Churchill until late  in life had not only never read a  word of Shakespeare, but had never  seen one of that dramatist's plays  acted. Ultimately ho-saw Henry Irving play Hamlet in Dublin. As the  sad fortunes of Ophelia unfolded  themselves    the    famous   statesman  muttered, "Dear me, this is very  sad ;" and when .the', play was over  he went round to the ..actor's dressing-room to thank him for a new  pleasure. During the week following  the performance he- spent many hours  continuously reading' Shakespeare's  plays.  Mr. John Hare, the actor, tells a  story of.how, one day at dinner, he  sat next to ' a; well-known bishop.  The idea of an:- alliance between  Church ��������� and Stage had not been  heard of then, and' perhaps the bishop may be excused for-asking the  popular actor "if- he had ever been  to  the theatre."   .   *���������-  LONG    COURTSHIPS.  applica-  ���������up '  thu  Some    of    the '  Mo'st Remarkable  . Cases  on Record.  Last year the. Hungarian village  of Keeskemat was the '.scene of a  marriage between a bridegroom of  eighty-two and a bride of seventy-  eight. Although the couple had been  engaged for fifty-years, extreme poverty had prevented their marriage,  and it was only when tlie man felt  that his end was near that' he resolved to leave at least his name to  the woman he had."loved so long.  How unprofitable it is to wait for  dead men's shoes must have been  the experience of a couple who were  not long- ago. married at Birmingham, England. When first betrothed  they determined to wait until the  death of the young man's father ���������  then in a critical stale of health ���������  should place a sufficient amount of  money at their disposal to enable  them to buy a small business. The  proverbial creaking door, however,  hung long upon its hinges, and it  was not until .thirty-nine years had  elapsed^,that the old man's decease  enabled them to make- an  lion to- a clergyman to put  banns.  The abduction of eligible recruits  was often put into requisition to  swell the ranks of Frederick of Prussia's gia.nl. Grenadiers. Almost on  the eve of his wedding was Tor re nee  Flynn, :a stalwart Irishman, 'kidnapped- by craft and constrained to  join that celebrated regiment During thirty years of virtual bondage  he contrived at intervals, to let his  fiancee know that his'heart was still  hers, and when at length, on contriving to reach his native land, he  found that she, too, had been faithful, the long-postponed ceremony  was celebrated".  Though a fifteen years' engagement is comparatively short, the circumstances attendant thereon in the  case of a Cincinnati���������'-.couple -inake it  worthy^ of note. Their long probation is due, not to any indecision or  dilatorincss on their part, ..but to  their having never during the whole  space of fifteen' years been out of  prison .at-the-same, time.-.  Though Miss M������������������ was engaged  she was loth, by; being wed, to forego the ardent" letters.'which' she received from her lover; who too was  unwilling to ;stem the tide of his  fiancee's amorous epistles. So their  engagement continued, while the correspondence, if. it in time lost its  passionate fervor, grew ever more  essential to their, happiness. Years  passed; they ceased to be lovers,  and would doubtless have, died unwed, had not the lady in her declining years' experieniced a reverse of  fortune, which determined her betrothed to fulfil.tlie promise he had  made nearly half a. century before.  Sixty-three years   ago   John    Morgan,   a   young   man   of'twenty-two,  who kept a drug-sttore. in-New York,  became engaged  to  a girl  of  seventeen.

FROM THE TRAIN'S.  the  Passengers    Get    G-limpses   of  Pan-American  Exposition.  People travelling from the east and  west will" como within the zone of  the direct influence and spirit of the  Pan-American Exposition miles away  from the great and glorious spectacle  itself. Surrounding the setting of  tlie exposition there arc numerous  features that will rival the attractions of the great show for .public  attention, and especially is thin true,  of Niagara Falls. There is no greater or more wonderful eye-feast in the  world than Use Falls of Niagara, the  beautiful gorge, .and the dashing tumultuous waters of the Whirlpool  Rapids. If they an- alerl, long before their train stops at Niagara  Falls, passengers over the Grand  Trunk Railway will come in flight of  the inighly observation tower from  which searchlight signals will be  flashed to the Electric Tower of the  Exposition. In fancy one can picture the beam of the powerful projector extending way oil' toward  Hamilton.. Ont., to give glad welcome and greeting to the incoming  trains laden -;witlf' humanity anxious  to, see the falls and the exposition.  Speeding' across'the wonderful gorge  the train will carry its passengers in  full'view of the Falls -of'Niagara and  the -Whirlpool Rapids, while the remarkable gorge will stretch out on  either side of the greatest railway  steel, arch bridge in the world. This  bridge of the Grand Trunk Railway  at Niagara Falls is one of the wonders of the locality, and resting, as  it : does, one end in'the domain of  King Edward, : the other in .the  United States, it forms a portion of  the .industrial bond in, the Anglo-  Saxon : union "that . forces a realization that no matter,on which side of  the.

There is  a    scientific    reason why salt should,  .be added.     The bacterial population  of-a. moderate    sized pat of   butter,  may    be reckoned by millions ;    and  a. tiny- lump, only large enough to go  into a. thimble,  has  been known   to  be    tenanted    by nearly 48,000,000,  Hence the urgency for keeping thesis  hordes    in check, and hence   the   efforts  which    are made,  first,  to sett  up effectual barriers to their ingress  by taking proper precautions in tha  production of    milk ;  and, secondly,,  iii  the manufacture and distribution  of the  finished- article.      Included  in.  these     processes    is  tlie addition of  salt in  such  quantities  as to  justify  the butter being known as salt��������� but*. ���������'  ter ;      or,     in   other words,  to sup--  press to a large extent the acliviti*s  of tlie  butter  bacteria.     That   salt  does act in this manner is shown by,  the fact that in butter thus   treated  a very  large reduction  in  the. num.*.  ber of micro-organisms present is ef-i  fected.  vAN UNNECESSARY ART,  Amateur  Yachtsman���������How  does it  happen  that you  have  always lived  near the water,  yet    do not    know,  how to swim?

SATUJJDAY, august 17, 1901.  Som<**   people   say the  newspapers of  the place should not   make   such a fuss  over municipal affairs in Sandon as thev  are making.   From   our   point of view  the reasons are simply these:   Two or  three of   the aldermen are disqualified  by law from holding seats at  the council board.   The-city solicitor, when appealed to, endorses the statement', and  says further, as a   consequence  all the  transactions  of   the  council are illegal.  This illegality and subsequent illegality  of acts, even if they were a legal body,  leaves the property of the place open to  heavy   damages.   Besides   this,   doing  business   in   this way not only deters  people from settling in 'the   place, but  actually drives   law respecting  citizens  out.   Now, we contend  that il" a newspaper is of any service at all  to a town,  it is to speak   out   plainly on   all  such  matters.    The editor of this  paper has  no feelings in the matter one way or the  other, bears no prejudices towards any  of the aldermen in the. matter, but as a  sentinal considers it his simple duty to  point out the consequences of all such  actions.    All remember that by violating the law and undertaking the Qnming  of the creek the first year of the council,  before the by-law to   borrow the money  was authorised by the people, the taxpayers had to pay heavy law costs. That  ought to have been a lesson for all time  to come.    But with   the   knowledge   of  the consequences of  law violations   before them, the   present council   persist  in repeating illegality again to have the  consequences repeated.   Do the people  want more law costs ?   If   they   do   all  right; if they do not they ought to step  in at once and avert danger in thisdirec-  tion, by either securing the resignation  of   the  disqualified   aldermen or their  vacation of office through the courts.  The life of a miner is certainly not one  of the most desirable from many points  of view. With care' in handling tools  and explosives, accidents may lie reduced by the miner himself to a minimum; but where machinery is employed, he is often at the mercy of  others, who may not always be too careful. In nearly all tbe accidents at shaft  mines, the consequences are the result  of the'carelessness or oversight of others,  which renders the calling even more  dangerous. Apart from this underground operations are always more or  less injurious to health, bad air, moisture, &c, paving the way for lung troubles and other serious afllictions. Again  taking another phase  of it, employment  .- is very irregular and uncertain; if  operations in tlie Slocan, for instance,  were averaged up it would be found that  for the past five years, or even since the  inception of work, the men would not  average much over half- time. The stop-  age during tiie strike was to an extent  ���������one of their own creating; but then  again there are government restrictions,  falling prices, unfavorable roads and  trails, wet wprkingB, etc., all conspiring  to do the miner out of steady work. For  the most of all these considerations the  miner is entitled to public sympathy;  but that sympathy unfortunately is not  always properly directed. Sometimes  the sympathy is directed in a channel  that does the operator more harm than  good. Taking everything into account,  the drift of our   legislation   instead   of  creating   frictions,   should   be  in   the  ..  RHEUMATISM  As experience stands, the  most promising way to treat an  old settled rheumatism is: to  setup the general health.  Whatever makes health, in  other respects, is good for  rheumatism.  We don't say it will cure it.  Sometimes it does; sometimes  it don't.  Your chance is better with  Scott's emulsion of cod-liver  oil than with anything else now  known.  By and by there will be a sure  cure; it will make a big noise  in the world when it comes  We'll send you a little to try if you like.

C.  'A THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday,. August 17^1901.  The Rossland Board of Trade after  correspondence with lhe officials of the  Miners' union has come lo the conclusion the miners' strike there was culled  in violation of the constitution of the  union, in.that the necessary 75 per cent,  of the membore-of the union were not  present, to vote the night the strike was  decided. This shows the danger when  Canadian associations are tied neck and  heels to ihe interests of a foreign organization. The fraudulent way in which  the Rnssland strike was ordered must  alienate the sympathies of the business  men from the strikers, unless they in  turn denounce the call to strike a fraudulent .action and return to work as  ��������� before.   And still the world moves. Last week  a section of our city council "to fulfil  tlie requirements of the law," published J  a proclamation for the election of an  alderman, over the signature of "C. E.  Lyons, City Clerk," giving but three or  four days' notice when the law calls for  ten. The illegality of the proceeding  was pointed out to them by W. I-I. Lilly  and others; and now a second meeting  and a second proclamation will have to  follow, costing the taxpayers probably  $8 or $10 through the ignorance of the  City Clerk, who knows all about how  business is done "on the other side,"  but nothing about how it should be  done here, when he is trying to buck  the taxpayers oat of a salary. Misthur  Dully looks on smilingly, because this  is not ���������'hnckinu the union." To help  the matter further, though Lyons was  ���������suspended by the mayor a week ago, and  has notsincebeen reinstated by the council, he is still acting officially. Did ever  mortal see such a boiling of illegalities  in the name of council proceedings?  Why do not the men whose property  will have to pay the costs and consequences of all this bungling and worse,  have writs of Quo Warranto served on  .at, leasts two or three of the aldermen,  who are known to be disqualified, calling on them to advance reasons why  they should not be compelled to vacate  their seats, and end the farce.  John 'Houston, .of the Nelson Tribune,  is a daisy, a   real 'old   eon n try'  daisy,  every inch of him, and no mistake." The  Green word Times says that many of the  low grade   mines   of   that  district  are  taxed as much- as 30 per cent, of their  earnings,  rendering operations unprofitable.'   At this John jumps to his feet  and ejaculates, "Well, what of it?   are  not   man}''   farms, many sawmills and  many newspapers run at a-loss?   Why  should the   mines   hope   to fare better  than   the    other    industries?"     John  should know, but   apparently does   not  know, it is not because of government  taxation ' farms,   sawmills   and    newspapers are  run  at a loss, when they are  so'nnfortunate, as is the case with the  mines.   But because private.individuals  ��������� 'iigage in enterprises that are. not  profitable,  John,   openly  declares,   .mine  owners and mine- managers, should go  .abroad ami borrow  money and   handle  it at a loss in/mines to please.men of the  kidney of the Nelson crank, and   to employ his voters, many  of   whom 'never  thank them fordoingso in thepast. But  it all conies back to the same old starting point.    If the government taxed the.  mines only us it does.other effects they  would lie worked at a profit, and the in-  crea������e  of   business  would   enable the  farms, the   sawmills,   the   newspapers,  Ac, to he worked ,'it a profit also.    Because one man has his capital in a stock  of merchandise.,  unother   in   his  lands  and improvements outside of municipal  corporations, they pay on an assessment  of   less  than   one-third  valup, but one  half of one  per ci'iit.. while  the'niiiies  on  which   the   whole   fabric,  of public  prosperity tlependp are   tax^d oftfn.as  much as 30 per cent., as the1 Green wood  Times puts it.   Can   Hou������fou   get" the  unfairness of all. this throusrh his wool ?  We again repeat tbe covernment must  have revpnup, but for the   name of all  that is fair let the taxation .to raise it be  equal on all classes of the conimunitv ; or  if any leinency is to lie shown let it be to  those, enterprises   onwhieb   the prosperity.or failure "f  the country wholly  depends.

FRUIT FLAVORS THAT BLEND.  A sort of general classification of  tiie various fruit flavors that blend  will not prove amiss just now, but  rather form a most convenient supplement to Lho numerous choice preparations that have preceded. and  prove a ready reference for the busy  housewife who wishes Lo substitute  for fruits not at hand, or exercise  her inventive skill on something' a  little different. They may be combined with the same palatable results in many of the well-known  ii'uit salads: permitting" various substitutions,   mi     convenience or  fancy  Cranberries and raisins combine in  a most delicious flavor, when used in  the proportions of a huli'-Leacupful  of raisins Lo one quart of cranber-  lies. Raisins and nice tart apples',  yield a mellow toothsome llavor,  while upon Lhe pineapple we may  ring a great variety of changes.  Pineapple and orange, for instance;  pineapple, orange and banana; pineapple and lemon; banana and lemon;  pineapple, banana and lemon; banana and orange; banana, lemon and  orange.  Raspberries and currants, two  parts of the former to one of the  latter, blend delightfully, and there  is a perfect harmony in red raspberry  and lemon. Strawberries, so delicious in themselves, form delectable  compounds when used as a basis  with following- additions: notably  with orange; pleasing- wiLh lemon  when sweet strawberries are used;  while strawberries with vanilla yield  a peculiarly delightful llavor difficult  to analyze, strawberries, pineapples,  bananas, lemons and sweet .Florida  oranges, all in one, combine in luscious effect If time be given them to  blend in one harinonius whole.  Cherries blend with Maraschino or  Noyau; they also blend with; pineapple if the juice from a can of.-pine-  applc be addled to one quart of cherries, and this frozen according to re-  ceipes for frozen fi'uiLs it will please  the most exacting taste. Blackberries, blueberries or grapes will never  disagree with the lemon, neither will  pear, apple or quince; pear, pineapple and cherries, chrec delights in  one, never disappoint; and for ambrosial elTeci; in the way of a tutti-  frutti of candied fruits you may add  to a pure,��������� sweetened, frozen cream,  cherries, strawberries, apricots, angelica, pears, Chinese oranges and a  little candied ginger.

TIIE    DUKE    AND  DUCHESS OF    CORNWALL AND YORK LEAVING AUSTRALIA.  The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall j that particular section of the British empire is concerned.

Wash it, pick off  fragments of bone and cut away any  part that is not sweet and clean.  Cut into several pieces, put in a  kettle and cover with boiling water.  Skim as it comes to a boil, then  simmer until the meat falls to pieces  and Lhe liquor is reduced to half a  pint. Remove the meat, season the  liquor highly with pepper, salt, sage  and thyme,, add ..it tY> Lhe meat and.  mix with a fork until the meat is all  broken. Place in a. brick-loaf pan  and when cold slice thinly. Nice for  picnics   and   lunches.  Quick  Bread,��������� Unexpected company  sometimes   decimates   the   supply   of  bread so that there is not enough Lo  last over Sunday.     Where short biscuits  are  not  appreciated  as a substitute,   Lry   this  recipe;     Scald   one  cup of milk and put it into a large  bowl   containing  half   a   teaspoonful  salL,     half   a tablespoonful     butter.  When the milk is lukewarm add one  yeast cake dissolved in one-third cup  of lukewarm water, then stir in flour  until   it  is  stifT enough  to   keep   its  shape     when  smoothed  over  with  a  knife.        Cover,'    set    it  in  a  warm  place and let it rise until'it doubles  its bulk, about one and a half hours.  Cut it down, shape into a loaf without kneeding,  let it rise again until  it  doubles  its   bulk  and  bake about  forty minutes.  Canned Tomatoes.���������Prepare the tomatoes,     choosing    good  solid  ripe  ones, by scalding ahd peeling, cut in  pieces and fill the jars with the solid  part of the tomato, leaving out the  juice. .Screw the caps on the cans  without rubbers; have the wash boiler ready with strips of wood ou the  bottom, or what is better, a perforated wooden bottom. Set the cans  in the boiler, not allowing them to  touch each other, fill widi cold.water  till about three-quarters up the sides  of the ������������������'can's, and boil an hour and a  half, reckoning the time from that  at. which boiling actually begins. The  contents of each can will have  shrunk a little: fill up from one jar.  Moisten the rubbers in the juice,  put on and seal quickly. There is  no question of their keeping if properly done, and you have your tomatoes in glass instead of tin.  HOUSEHOLD HINTS.  In summer-time try folding sheets,  tablecloths and pillow-cases and running them through the wringer instead of ironing.  Profuse perspiration is very bad  for the hair, so in warm weather it  is best to go without a hat as much  as possible and when one is worn it  should be light in weight and well  ventilated.  Teach theboys and girls to put  their things in their proper places.  You have heard that before? Seems  to me I have. But I was going to  add that the best way to teach this  to the youngsters is to have a place  for everything and then not forget  where that place is.  When badly sunburnt do not wash  the face soon after; wipe it gently  with vaseline or cold cream and dust  it lightly with corn starch. If you  do wash it use water as hot as can  be borne; dip soft cloths in the water  and lay them, over the face, renewing as they grow cool.  Fold a dress skirt across rather  than lengthwise; it gets lengthwise  creases in wearing, so fold it across  to counteract them. Stretch it out  full width, then fold down from the  belt to lit the trunk. If too wide,  give the last folds lengthwise. This  tends to smooth out the lines and  lnussiness of waar.  Do not allow the kitchen sink, or  the bench by the well to serve as a  common toik't room for the men  when they come in from their work.  If each one cannot have a room to  himself, each room can have a washbowl and pitcher, and every member  of the household his own comb and  brush. The privacy of one's own  room is the place in which to make  the toilet.  Skimmed milk is too little appreciated upon most farms. To be sure  it is a little thin as a drink, but  when used instead of water in bread-  mixing, the loaves are about ten per  cent, richer in flesh forming food.  But from one to three hours longer  arc required by the sponge to rise.  not only turned daily but aired for  at least an hour. Each child as it  becomes old enough should be taught  to remove the covers from the bed  daily and place them in a current of  air, and also to upturn the mattress.  If you do not require the child to  make her own bed, at Toast require  her to air it.  DOILTES FOR TABLES.  Exceptionally light and airy-looking mats for a sideboard or table  are made with a round white linen  centre, into which a .full frill border  of crochet, is made of fine linen  thread as follows: Turn the edge or  the linen under narrowly and catch  it down; then cover the fold with' a  row of solid double crochet. Using  the latter as a foundation, make the  first row, 3 chain, one single, crochet  in every double crochet: second row,  4 ch. 1 s. c. in centre of every 3 ch.  loop; make ten more rows after tho  same manner as the second row,  making the loops one stitch longer  in every... row. Starch the edge  slightly and iron out very thoroughly.  FRAMING/PICTURES.  The best taste of the day inclines  to framing photographs and prints  without nats, bringing the frame  close against the picture, as is done  in oils. If mats, however, are preferred, take the pictures to the dealers and try each mat on each picture, never trusting to chance, or  anything but actual experiment.  Artists -invariably do this. You  must consider the color of the prints  themselves.and the color of the walls  on which they are to hang. The  simplicities arc always to be preserved, and no frame ought to distract attention from the picture itself.  . LAUGHTER SAVED THE SHIP.  Humor has been credited with the  saving of many things, but perhaps  never before has a ship been saved  by its judicious application. In a  great storm, many years ago, a  sjiip's crew were all at prayers,  when a boy burst into a lit of violent laughter. Being reproved for  his ill-timed mirth and asked the  reason for it, he said: "Why, I was  laughing to think what a hissing the  boatswain's red nosje will make-  when it comes in contact with the  water." This ludicrous remark set  the crew a-laughing, inspired them  with new spirits, and by a great exertion they brought the vessel safely into port.

Health Entirely Re-established by  Dodd's Kidney Pills���������Another  Triumph for That Wonderful  Remedy���������His Eyesight Has  Been Strengthened.  St. Epi, Que., July 29���������(Special).  One year ago a miracle was announced in Chicago. 11. A. Wade, the  great criminal lawyer, regained his  sight after having for years been totally blind. His case was published  throughout the length and breadth  of America, and it attracted more  attention to Dodd's Kidney Pills  than any medicine ever got before.  For it was Dodd's Kidney Pills that  restored his sight.  A similar case has turned up in  the village of St. Epi, Que. Though  this sufferer was not stone blind,  his eyes nevertheless were utterly  useless to him by lamplight. And  they have been completely restored  by Dodd's Kidney Pills, which is another  point of similarity.  There is no attempt made to assert Dodd's Kidney Pills are a cure  for blindness. Dodd's Kidney Pills  are the greatest kidney medicine  ever known. That is the claim,made  for Dodd's Kidney Pills, and there  is evidence enough to prove that  claim. But in cases where Kidney  Disease has left poisons in the blood  and the said poisons attacking the  weakest spot, injure the eye, Dodd's  Kidney Pills are just, as infallible as  where the poison attacks the joint  of the arm or the small of the back.  That the eyesight of Thomas St.  Pierre was restored is but another  argument that Dodd's Kidney Pills  make the blood absolutely pure.  Here is Mr. Sl. Pierre's letter: "I  am happy to-day to see my health  entirely re-established by Dodd'9  Kidney Pills. 1 owe that wonderful  remedy a thousand thanks. Before  using Dodd's Kidney Pills T had consulted many physicians and xaken  medicines of various kinds, but each  made me worse. I had a constant  pain in the back and limbs. At,  night 1 couldn't rest and I .could not  see by lamplight.. .Having taken  only two boxes of Dodd's Kidney  Pills . I am perfectly cured. My eyesight is clear. I advise all* those  whose health i:- '��������� .a icuod, from  whatever cause, to try Dodd's Kidney Pills. Nine times out of ten  they will be exactly what is wanted.  Two dollars spent for Dodd's Kidney Pills will do more than millions  spent otherwise, for who .holds.'anything in the world more dear than  health, or would spare, any means  to save it ?" . .���������  . __4 _  There arc many things far more  easily imagined than Lord Salisbury  carrying clay to the brick-makers  for the erection of some ecclesiastical edifice. Yet, according Lo news  which has just reached'London, this  is precisely what has been done by  the Prime'Minister of Uganda. The  huge red cathedral in the capital of  the Protectorate is to be replaced  by a substantial structure of brick.  Almost everyone appears to have  lent a. helping luind. The native  Christians are supplying the labor,  and tlie leading ladies���������including  even some of the Princesses of the  Royal Household���������have been cutting  down forest trees for burning the'  bricks and carrying the fagots back  upon their heads. Nay, even more;  the Katikoro, who is the Prime Minister of the place, has taken the  lead in digging clay for the bricks  and carrying it to the brick-makers.  _������������������. ' .!.'

THE     NEWEST AND  SIMPLEST  PHYSICAL  DRILL.  Persons    Subject    to  Throat    and  Chest  Troubles are  Benefited.  You may throw away your developer, your dumb-bells, or Indian  clubs, and take to a much more con-,  vcnient and comfortable means of  exercising your chest measurement  and' keeping yourself "(it.." All you  have to .do is to whistle ! But you  must whistle regularly, and according to a prescribed plan.  German and Swedish professors of  physical training have long advocated and practised breathing exercises as the best means of promoting  health. There are many drill schools  in'England where-almost the whole  business of the pupils is to lie flat  on their backs on tables and, for a  ���������certain time, do nothing more than  fill and empty their lungs with air.  Wonderfully successful results have  attended this method.  Whistling for hi-nlth is a refinement of the 'breathing drill. Also,  in addition to warding oil' ailments,  the performer acquires a pleasing  accomplishment that can be brought  to a really-wonderfu.l degree of perfection. About a score of people in  the world earn their living by doing  .absolutely nothing else than whistling. --  Very many more entertainers add  the accomplishment to their other  methods of amusing the public.- It  is from the best of these���������from- Miss  Alice Shaw, tho famous "whistler"'  ���������that our information comes, says  Pearson's Weekly.  Miss Shaw, who has whistled before audiences of nearly every nation in the world, declares that all  scientific and artistic practice of the  art must be the result of'an expulsion of air from the lungs through  the throat and lips, each affecting  in turn the current of air started by  the working of  OUR  BREATHING   ORGANS.  to their capacity, and'then with the.  lips and throat in proper position  expel the air. After a time modulations should be practised, and then  any. airs that suit the taste of the  performer. A, little whistling every  day. will achieve unexpected success.  Volume and strength of note come  very quickly. It is quite possible  to "phrase in whistling as in singing.".   o   Mosquito is derived from lhe Spanish "mosca," and means * "little fly."  c :^i-i i...'q]f num���������j, )-,i.anr^-A-a.--ac:w-,.7^Kg^ i  C.

The manager of the Noble Five mine  sent- the following report to the head  office at Victoria for tlie month of July:  ''During the month of July the following work hits been done: In tunnel  A the cross-cut we are running.to crosscut lhe Last Chance ledge has been run  u, distance of 113 3-4 feet, making a total  to dale of 200 feet. In Last Chance tunnel No. 3 we have drifted on the ledge  35 feet, making a total from' the Last  Chance end line of 151 feet. In this distance we have encountered three chutes  of ore, A. E. and C. We have not upraised on chutes 13 and C, but in the  drift the maximum width of ore was 16  inches, 12 inches and 3 feet respectively.  Assays of ore taken from chute C cave  from 174 ounces to 426 ounces of silver  per ton, and from 11 to 17 per cent lead.  We shipped during the month to the  Nelson smelter 24 tons of clean ore, the  net returns for which, after paying  freight and treatment charge.1-, wore  -$1,028.33, a tiifie better than $80 per  ton.'1  .

In  reference to the silver mines, the Quepn  Bess is one among the number to he  taken oyer by the new company.  Payne Mine Operations.  The pre finder has been working on  the Payne and adjacent claims of the  group and another ledge haB been located below the present workings.  :,.It is the intention of the company to  go on with the compressor plant at  once, which will arrive in a few days.  The fires have prevented building  operations for a lew more days yet.  However, when the carpenters start  to work it will only take two weeks to  put the machinery and the "engine up  and have the plant in running shape.  The ground is ready to commence building, which will be started' as soon as  the fires are out. An order of 5000 feet  of air pipe is coming from Portland,Ore.  The concentrator plans have been  dropped, but in the course of time a  mill may be built.  A large staff of men are working in tlie  mine and on the surface, and the  indications are that the mine will he  opened up again in a short time.  From $100 to $25,  A short time ago City Auditor Sewell  said Clerk Lilly's hooks should be "rewritten" up and he wanted . $100 to do  it. Jack, of course, had to be as good  as his master, and Mr. Lyons wanted  $100 for the work, as to take less would  be "scabbing," and that Solon, Aid,  Dully, could never ��������� stand scabbing.  Now, however, Auditor .Sewell has offered to do what he alleges should be  done, for $25. Tlie Review has said  from first to last, all the office calls for is  systematising, that might take a couple  of days time, and that any official would  put in gratis for his own convenience.  However, the city treasury is flush, and  the aldermen think nothing of voting  away money by the handful. Will not  some taxpayer take hold of the matter ?
