As Christmas will have comeandgone  before the next issue of this paper, we  have only to adopt the time worn saying and wish all our readers a Merry  Christmas and a Happy New Year.  ��������� Whilst Ernie Crawford was sending  his mules "to grass" in the Okanagan  country, he-went out shooting one day  and bagged a line deer, which he sent  home to his parents as an Xmas box. ���������  There are over thirty members on the  roll of tho SandSn Curling Club. The  club .is free from debt and has a good  balance in the treasury. The different  ��������� rinks are practicing every evening in,  preparation for the coming bonspiel.  Mrs. Hammond and Miss Hammond,  who were visiting with Mrs. Gvo. B.  McDonald, Cody, went over to Nelson  on Monday where they will reside for  the winter. Mr. and Mrs. Dubois went  with them, and may spend most of the i  winter there.  The Socialistic Club in the city is  holding regular meetings and gaining in  ' numbers, bocialisnn is opposed to every  form of anarcby, confusion and destruction; and aims at correcting all wrongs  by the ballot, until eventually there  will be "one common brotherhood of  man from one end of tbe earth to the  other,-on the basis of common equality.  The Rev. and Mrs, Sanford, who were  visiting in tbe city for some days the  past week returned home on Tuesday  morning. On Sunday Mr. Sanford  preachedthe opening sermon in the new  church and $163 was raised in the collections. Mr; Sanford has always been  successful in collections.

McAnn, of Kaslo, has been appointed judge of the courtof revision for  district. This is an excellent appointment.  Alex, Do-lds, manager of the Red Fox  mine, left lapt week for his old home in  Broadville, Ont., where he will spend  the winter.  Don't forget the benefit ball .in the  Miners' union hall on Christmas night.  The season calls? for all to be'merry,';  the object is laudable.  City Council.  The class of smelter Mr. Stewart,  poses to erect at Kaslo is one that  operate without fluxes.   Such an one  would be much the best for this district.  pro-  will  E.Davis, foreman at the Reco mine,  had a close call the other day. In climbing the ladder in one of the stopes he  slipped and fell a distance of about 20  feet, landing on some timbers. He received a couple of ugly gashes that were  . speedily"fixed up" by some handy one  at the mine, and went to work shortly  after. Had it not been for the limbers  thatcanght him he would probably have  fallen 200 feet, when the consequences  may be imagined.  A grand Christmas concert under the  auspices of the pupils of Sandon public  school will be held in the Minerp' union  hall, on Monday evening, Dec. 23rd. An,  excellent programme has been prepared  consisting of the latest choruses, drills,  recitations,' readings,   dialogues, . tableaux, pantpmines, etc.   A   first  class  entertainment is assured, and the public are cordially asked to patronize this  concert   and    thereby  encourage  the  children.   The proceeds will be devoted  to establishing a library for the school.  They have at length reached the ledge  in the long crosscnt at the Last Chance,  and it contains a moderate amount of  ore.

Resolution Passed, by Kaslo Board of  Trade, Dee. 13,1901.  - Whereas the province of British Columbia is represented in the Parliament  of Canada by six,members of the House  of Commons and three Senators; and  whereas the. population of Kootenay  and Yale, shown by, the recent census,  is about one-third of the population.of  the whole province, and of the nine  members of bpth Commons and Senate  only one is resident in the southern interior of British Columbia where the  business interests are diverse from those  of every other part of Canada.  Be it resolved that this Board respectfully submits that in the event of a vacancy occurring in the Senate representation of British Columbia such  vacancy should, as a matter of fair representation by population, and interest, be filled by calling to the Senate a.  resident of this mining district, familar  with its requirements.  New Zine Combine.  of  re-  Xmas rates on the K. & S.. tickets  will be sold on Dec. 23rd to 25th. inclusive good till January 3rd, nnd for New  Years tickets will be fold Dec. 30th to  Jan. 1st inclusive good till Jan. 3rd, at  a rate of a fare and one-third for round  trip.  On Monday last Mr. Garde, manager  of the Payne mine, sent a cheque for  $242 to Louis Miller,, who was hurt'in  the accident at the Payne a couple of  weeks ago. and is now in the hospital at  Spokane, $100 of which was giyen by  the company, and the balance by  employes at the mine. Milter is  recovering rapidly, but we understand  he has lost the sight of'.one eye.  The people of Slocan City are in  ecstacies of delight over what is reported  to be one oi the biggest strikes, if,not  the biggest, ever made in the Slocan.  Tn the Ottawa on Springer creek, Tom  Mrilvey and W. Clements, tbe owners,'  struck a good ledge of 3,000 ounces of  silver. If the ledee turns out to be one  of magnitude it will make all belonging  to the mine millionaires. Mnlvey,  King, Taylor and Johnpnn have the  property under bond. The ore waB  reached in a 250-foot tunnel.  The  zinc smelter- combination,  whicti'a great deal has been' said  cently, seems  to  have assumed some  definite form, and recent publications  put the amount of capital   stock to be  issued at $50,000,000, and  name a number of the plants which are probably to  be taken into the new concern. .If these  statements are correct the, combination  will hardly be a factor to be seriously  considered.   Tbe amount of capitalization named is entirely too great for any  such   concern   to carry, and it will be  overloaded at the outset with a number  of old  and  semi-obsolute  plants purchased at  figures  far above their real  value.   In fact, in the list given out to  the press there very few smelting.plants  which are now in good condition and up  to date, and unless the organization is  very much changed from present plans,  it does not look as though  it would be  able to compete with the modern plants  in the Kansas natural gas region, for instance, or with a number of others which  could be named.   The better works included in the proposed combination are  not not large enough to overbalance the  dead material which will have to be carried.   The E. A.M. Journal h inclined  to  think  that  the consolidation will  hardly go through in its present foini.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine.      , Tons.  Slocan Star 261  Reco :  66  Last Chance....' :  44  Ivanhoe  40  Goodenough...' '.. 22  Last Chance '.'... 20  Total,  487  An accident.occurred at the Snowshoe  mine near Phoenix the other da.y, very  siniilar to that which occurred at the  Payne, in which Miller was' hurt". The  results at the Snowshoe were also, similar���������one Signsted had his eyes nearly  blown out and another man had a wrist  broken.  Fop Xmas Presents.  Now for tbe holidays. We are now  receiving decidedly the best assortment  of toys, fancy goods, &c, for the holiday trade ever opened in Sandon, and  all very cheap. We are selling all goods  left over from last season .at cost, and  tbe new goods are marked very low.  We know times are hard and- money is  scarco, so the idea is to make tbe dollar  go as far as possible, and it will go farther in our store than at any place in  the Kootenay country in the toy, and  fancy goods line. Please Bear this in  mind parents and others who have to  buy, Cliffe's booksfcoie is this year the  headquarters in the Slocan for holiday  presents.  At a labor meeting in New York on  Tuesday, steps were taken between the  labor element of the States and" capital  interests, to settle all future disputes by  an amicable arbitration and prevent for  the future strikes and lock-touts.' It  will be a godsend to the country i,f tliev  develop plans that will prove 'effectual.  Remember the  School  Concert  The Toronto Mail and Empire has  published an interesting edition containing the story of Christmas in the  English,. French, Danipb. Gaelic, Norwegian, Cree Indian, Polish, German,  Galacian, Italian and Russian languages, as some of the tongues spoken in  Canada. It might have gone farther  and given other Indian dialects, Japan-  epe, Chinpse, Hebrew, Icelandic, Swedish and Paystreak, the latter being entirely distinct from all others.

Field-Marshal Walders'ee has summed up the result of 700 years oi  righting between France and Germany. Tho-rivul nations are quits,  if figures prove anything. The Germans have killed or wounded 1,100,-  520 Frenchmen, and the French 1,-  057, 730 Germans. The French have  gained 235 victories ovet the Germans and the Germans 240 over the  i'Yencli.

These are the symptoms which point to a depleted nervous system. They tell of thin, weak, watery  blood; of wasting vitality and lack of energy and ambition.' They warn you that nervous prostration, locomotor ataxia,, paralysis and even insanity are possibilities of the future.  It is folly to neglect nervous diseases, folly to suppose that they will  disappear of their    own accord,  and  still greater folly to deaden and destroy the nerves by the use of poisonous narcotics.    It is a serious mat-,  ter,to trifle"with.the nerves.    It is a question of life and death.  Mrs. Henry Clarke, Port Hope, Ont., states:���������"I have used seven boxes of Dr.Chase's Nerve Food for nervousness and a completely��������� run down system, and can heartily recommend it as a wonderfully effective treatment. .Beforeusing this remedy I had been in very poor health for some .months. I seemed to have no energy or ambition,  felt tired and listless most of the time, and could scarcely drag myself about the house. I was weak, irritable and nervous, could not sleep well, and felt discouraged about my health. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has  taken away these sy2upto.f:.\s and given back my usual health and vigor,   consequently I endorse'it fully."

There were a lot of figures,  showing"    how much ice you melted,  how    much gold you got,  what     it  cost,   and what  was  profit--50     per  -cent. 1 think the pro/it was.    ft looked     such     a nice     company that I  thought I'd like to have a cut in.  "H'm !" I said. "I suppose the  shares will all be snapped up ? 'Pon,  my word, 1 "  "My dear fellow," said Hawke,  "if  you would like "  "Of course'I should," I said.  "Then leave it to me."  "We'll    seo     you     through," said  Solomon.    "Mow many shares do you  want ?"  "Well," I said, "-1 couldn't draw,  more than ������10,000 without letting  old Vauce know, and he'd be sure to  go to my mother, and make a fuss."  Vance is our solicitor. "So I can't  havo more then 10,000." They were  ������1 apiece.  "My dear boy," said Solly, "you  shall have them. In a month they'll  bo up to ������2.' and then you can sell  out."  Afterwards they altered the prospectus a bit, and put me in as chairman. I didn't see the use ; but they  explained it was on account of my  being a lord, and well known as a  cricketer.  "I can't make speeches." I pointed  out, "or do much of the management."  "Not     at    all," Hawke promised,  "Solly and I ai-e the managing    dire, tors.   Of course,  wc shall be glad  of your advice at all times."  "What shall 1 do first, then V" 1  asked. "The chairman ought to have  a voice in the concern ?"  "Oh���������er���������certainly," said Hawke.  "Come round the offices with us this  afternoon, and see the staff. Perhaps  you can suggest some improvements."  We went to the offices accordingly.  When we entered the clerks' room,  Hawke said : "This is Lord Charles  Manson, our chairman." They all '  stood up. It made me feci cteuccd  awkward. However. I professed to  be very-'interested in the work, and  asked them all what they did. They  seemed to do everything so well that  I "couldn't for the life of me see anything to improve.  Then'we went into another room,  where there was a very nice young  lady in a very neat blouse. She had  one of those pretty Irish faces���������half  innocent, half saucy���������and she made  a dainty little  bow..  "This is Miss Keilly, our typewriter," they said.  "Pray don't let me disturb you," I  said.   ."It's���������er���������a very fine day."  ���������"Well,'.' said Solomon, "for the  mpme'nt ���������"   ,  "Do-,you mind mv asking vou, Miss  Reill'y- ?".  /'Certainly, not, my lord. Twenty-  five shillings a week."  "Really," I said firmly, "this  seems' a matter in which some improvement might  be made."  '���������"Of-., course," said Hawke-r-"of  course.

THE BOD WELL BOOM.  Out in Victoria just now  there is a  little Bodwell boom, a sort of "tempest  iii   a   tea   pot"   as   it  were. ��������� Premier  Dunsmuir.   has   before  now   told the  people of that city that  Victoria waa  not the whole of British Columbia, and.  for  that offending he must  be put to  death,   and    Bodwell    placed    in   his'  administrative shoes.   It" may not here  be out of place to inform the Victorians,  that the whole of British Columbia cannot  aee Mr. Dunsmuir's   offending as  they   do,    nor   -in Mr.   Bodwell   the  great  6avior of the country that they j foiTli  see.   They, stole a march on  the rest of   pKvcjriahs prescribe it.  the   country   in  having    the   capital \.      -'  THE    ESQUIMO  ������������������ The Esquimo eats blubber.  The lumbermen eat pork.  These people are constantly  sxposed to cold and physical  strain. Experience has taught  them that fatty foods give  warmth  and   nourishment.  For those who have cold  and thin bodies, or are threatened with consumption or any  wasting disease, there is no fat  in so digestible and palatable a  as ' Scott's    Emulsion.  date the entire railway system of the  province as. one huge monoply. Are  ���������the people of the province going to elect  Bodwell &, Co. and rivet this huge'  octopus around their necks for.-nil time  to come? The matter res'ts'with them-  eelves alone.  MMHIWi'MBHBB^^  JEWELRY  anchored at Victoria, where nature  never designed it to be, and parliament  buildings at a cost of four times what  they should have cost. All along the  line it is pure selfishness ��������� and grab with  them", and if the province refuses  longer to second their efforts, they must  only come to the conclusion the people  of British Columbia are now coming to  their senses.  The whole offending of James Dunsmuir appears to be in refusing to bleed  the treasury to build Jim Hill's road  into Victoria. In so far as this paper is  concerned, we have no more" feeling  against the Great Northern than any  other road, and no more favor for the  C. P. R. than we have for ,the other  system. We have only to remark the  country has already been fleeced for  railways, and the people must call a  halt. If Mr. Hill and his associates  want to build a road to Victoria by all  means allow him to do it, but let him  do it at his own expense.  Mr. Bodwell, for years has been the  chief factotum, for revenue reasons, of  the Hill brigade, swearing vengeance,  because the treasury was not freely bled  for hii clients. For the sake of "blind  folding the devil in the dark" he  resigns (?) his solicitorship of the Hill  outfit and appears, in Victoria as a  coming- premier to down Dunsmuir.  The Victorians know it all. They  believe lhat by Esau assuming thevoice  of Jacob, they can persuade British  Columbia that Bodwell is Jacob indeed,  but old hens are not caught with chaff  ���������they know that Bod well's resignation,  is a fake, that in the past he has been  fed too well to turn his back on Hill  now. No one but a fool, would be  duped that way.  Now supposing Hill's road was built  to Victoria at a cost ol several millions  to the people, what would tbe province  get in   return?   Victoria   would   have  some more   railway buildings,   a  few  more officials resident, and an another  line of steamers to the mainland; but  what would the province secure for its  cash?��������� Competition?      History  says  emphatically NO.   The municipalities  of Western Ontario in their time gave  five millions of dollars   for competing  roads, and they are now all owned by  the C. P. R.,.with pooled rates with the  Grand Trunk.   Ten years ago Manitoba  gave $750,000 to the Northern Pacific,  and the next year after it was built it  joined hands with the'C.P.'R.; and last  year   that  province' again   mortgaged  itself to the neck to free itself from the  compound monoply.   But let us come  nearer Sandon. We have the C.P.R. and  Jim Hill's road,and travel or ship toany  point where these lines meet again, and.  We'll tend you a Utile to try, if you lilts.  SCOTT   &   BOWNE,      Chemists,  Toronto.  the rates are the same, and the people  say both are very high. Can we ask  the people to mortgage themselves further to give Victoria the experience that  Sandon has? No; Bodwell and his  crowd know Dunsmuir is opposed to  mortgaging the country for more railways���������the people know Bodwell is .in  favor of tbe mortgages for his railway  friends, and that should be enough for  for them, but this is not all.   From the!  It is of the greatest necessity that the  Socialistic movement should   be   kept  out of the hands of fire-brand agitators,'!  whose 'only qualifications are   a deck  load of venom.   People are commencing  to see that the millionaires of the world  have never honestly earned the wealth  they control, and. should not be allowtd  to control  it.   Any and   all   men  are  entitled to all they honestly earn,' but,  no more���������they should hot be allowed to  hoard   up   wealth    they   obtained   by  stratagem  and trickery  under legislation  framed  in   their   interest,   while  honest toilers and others,who if allowed  the opportunity would become honest  producers of wordly wealth, are on the  verge   of    actual    starvation.     While  people see this, however,  the necessary  reforms can only be made by  calmn,  honest and legitimate efforts.  i^mmss^siiss^ss^^^ssEmLwss^sLmu.

Plain Paste���������Sift one-half cup  flour with one-half teaspoon salt; rub  into the flour on.e-quart.er cup lard  and add cold water., to form a dough.  Knead, cover and let stand live minutes, paf and roll out; fold in ono-  half cupful washed butter. Roll and  fold  three times. Most cooks use  lard in their pastry. -The fault which  lies back of the uncertainty in pastry making is the habit of not measuring, the butter and lard. If flour  is at all damp dry it thoroughly and  the pastry will be improved. The  same rule for folding and rolling out  that was given last week for puff  paste applies as well to plain paste.  Paste may be kept rolled up in an  old linen cloth in tho ice chest so  that no hard crust forms on it. Then  cut oil' and bake a fresh pie as needed rather than bake a large number  of pies at once.  Mince Pics.���������For tho mince meat  put three pounds of lean meat into a  kettle with ono arm on^-nall" pounds  suet; cover with boiling water and  cook until meat is tender. '" When  cold chop the meat and add twice  the amount of finely chopped apples,  two quinces finely chopped, two  pounds sugar, one and one-half cups  molasses, two and one-half pounds  seeded'raisins, one pound currants,  one-half pound finely-cut citron,  three-fourths tablespoon mace and  cinnamon, one-halt' tablespoon clove,  one and one-half nutmegs grated,  one-half teaspoon pepper, one quart  cider, and salt to taste. Cook slowly two hours.    Before using add the  a compromise by using baked crusts  to be filled  with cooked mixtures.  Almond Uakes���������Roll plain paste  one-eighth inch thicK, sprinKle with  p>-������"jcrcd sugar, fold, press edges together, pat and roll out, repeat and  fold four times. The paste should be  in a long strip one a.ud one-half inches wide. From the end cut pieces  one-fourth ' inch wide. Place on a  baking sheet one inch apart. When  well browned remove from oven,  brush over with white of egg, sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon mixed and  chopped almonds. Return to oven  and finish cooking.  ���������HOUSEHOLD HINTS.  Canned fruit wlilch shows signs of  fermentation, can be saved'by adding  more sugar, some spices and a little  vinegar. If it has soured in the  least, put in a little soda and cook  until it thicken*s. Use as a relish  with cold meat.  It is economy to have pint jars on  hand in canning time for what is left  over after, filling tlie one or two-  quart cans. It is bettor to fill a  pint can than to repeat.. New rubber rings are not necessary every  season. Those that have been used,  if hard, can be softened and made  pliable by boiling: in a solution of  water and ammonia.  Use clean, soft rags to remove the  ���������grease from kettles and frying pans  before washing. "Wipe all the grease  from the meat dishes with' rags or  paper. Clean grease spots from the  stove with paper, and save all to  start the kitchen fire. Put your  hand in a paper.bag when you black  tho. stove.  To . protect    the  hot kettles or pans,  rack    with     lath,  length of the table,  and    nail    together  apart.

Much has been said and written  concerning, the best lamp flues and  burners to use in order to have good  lights,    .but    neither    one is  so  im-  1111 arm   portant as to keep tne burners clean.  Do not Many lamps give a dull, feeble light,  or have been set aside as dangerous,:  because thoy havo not been properly  cared for in this respect and the  dust has accumulated in the small  air-tube at the side of the wick. The  remedy is so simple that- there is no  excuse for this condition of affairs.  New lamp Hues are toughened and  made more durable by putting them  in water and heating it gradually  until it is boiling not. When they  have boiled five minutes set them oil  of the stove and allow them to cool  in the water. '. In addition to the  daily filling of the. lamps and cleaning of the flues, the burners should  ���������be boiled once a week in water', containing     enough     golddust    washing  add the whites of the eggs until the  last minute before filling the patty  pans. If preferred the mixture may  be baked in one pie. A pie will bake  more quickly in an old tin plate, but  a new tin with its shining surface  will hold the heat and impart less to  whatever it contains. To line patty  pans successfully be sure not to allow  air to be enclosed under the paste.  Press each scallop with fingers, to  ma ke a rim.'  Cranberry Pic.���������Invert pie plate  and cover with paste, bake and remove, fill with cooked cranberries  and decorate top with paste cut in  fancy shapes and baked.

ICE-BREAKER  FOR  QUEBEC,   j  Frenchman's Plan for Keeping the '  St.  Lawrence Open. |  t  European capital is about' to be  employed in an attempt to accomplish the winter navigation of the  St. Lawrence, which i^ at present  closed by ice for five or six months  of the year. ��������� i  The main mover in this matter io j  W. Nordin, head of the timber house  of 0. W. Nordin & Co.. of Paris, '  who has satisfactorily mastered the  difficulties attending the winter navigation of the , Bailie. He was in  Quebec last _winter and mad~b a special study, of the movements of tbe  ice and the various currents of tho  St. Lawrence.  He ha.i just returned to Quebec  with his bi,oth"r, backed by a Euro-  pear syndicate and large capital,  and is at���������'.'present engaged in looking  for suitable forest tracts for lumbering operations and the pulp-wood in- j  dustry.     i j  The vessels employed by the Messrs.  Nordin for tbe winter navigation, of  the Baltic are of special construction  with raised bows heavily sheathed  .with: metal which press down upon as  well as cut out the ice, which attains a thickness of several feet in  the Baltic. In the St. Lawrence, on  the other hand, the river below Quebec is never frozen all'across, the  danger to winter navigation consisting in the bergs and floating fields of  ice.  j       .MR.  NORDIN'S CHIEF  AIM.  iu striving to extend the season of  navigation from tiie St. Lawrence, is  to facilitate the shipment of his products to Europe all the year round,  ���������without having to bear the additional cost in winter, of sending them by  rail to an American port.  If he ships by the Saguenay he will  have to cut out a great depth of ice  in that river, but not more than in  the Baltic. Ho will scarcely attempt  to .keep the St: Lawrence clear of ice  above Quebec, for between this city  and Monti eal the ice' sometimes attains a thickness- of nearly thirty  feet, grounding on the bed of the  river.  One of the greatest difficulties heretofore experienced    by the many riif-  have' proposed the  'of the St.  Law-  that of insurance,  trips have     been  Law-  no ne  over-crowded on tho floor they havo  not room to exercise, and in consequence, will not be so vigorous and  therefore more liable to take cold  at any draft or change of temperature. Over-crowding on the roosts is  another fruitful source of disease.  Professor Graham, of the Ontario  Agricultural College, says iiuiLreach  hen aud pullet should have ten inches of roost room. He says that  where they are unduly crowded ��������� and  touch each other perspiration gathers can be felt between them. A hen  in this condition is sure to catch'  cold when she gets e'ewn into the  colder air on the floor. , Roup is sure  to follow. Fowl will naturally  crowd some, but if there is roost  room enough the crowding they do  will not bo injurious' unless they  have been allowed or forced to overcrowd when chickens.  ���������1>-  ferent persons who  winter navigation  rence, has beon (  Though occasional  made in safety to.the lower St.  rence in tho winter months,  of these has been attempted by large  and valuable ocean-going steamers,  for the underwriters refuse to insure  them because of the supposed peiils.  Jt 'will, therefore, be necessary for  the syndicate of .Mr. Nordin to become its own underwriters.  I The iuipcrtance of this scheme, not  only U Quebec, but also to the  whole of Canada at the present time,  arises from the fact that Quebec  proved last, summer tiiat she is. on  the shortest and most direct route  for-the shipments of grain from the  Northwest to Europe, and is chiefly  handicapped by hei inability to continue these shipments during the winter season .It is believed in.Quebec  that the success of Mr. Norclin's  scheme would rapidly build up Quebec to be* one of the greatest grain  shipping ports in America.

If  BABY'S HEALTH.,     ,  The Teething- Period Dangerous to  Little Ones and Very Trying  to  M. others.  What mother does not look forward with dread to the time when  baby shall be teething? At that-  time baby is restless, feverish and  irritable, and frequently there is  some disorder of the bowels and  stomach. The poor little sufferer is  fighting one of his first battles in  this old world of pain',- and if not aided in his fight may be overcome. Every wise mother helps the little 'sufferer as much as she can,' and the mothers who have been most successful  in this respect have found that Baby's "Own Tablets give just such assistance as the little one needs. Mrs.  W. J. Wright, Brockville, says:���������"I  have used Baby's Own Tablets quite  frequently, *and am much pleased  with them. I find them especially  satisfactory during baby's first year.  1 have used them in" teething, in  vomiting, in colic, in indigestion,  and in the disorders of the .stomach  and bowels usually accompanied by  restlessness and fever. The action  of the Tablets has always been all  that could be desired.'.'  Baby's Own Tablets are a sweet,  pleasant little lozenge that rill children will take readily. They can be  crushed or dissolved in Water and administered with safety to even the  youngest infant. Guaranteed to  contain no opiate or any of the poisonous stuffs that make the so-called  soothing medicines dangerous to little ones.

S**^  B������ THEf MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, December 21, 1901.  ���������Mi  y  Mr. Robertson's Views.  We clip the following excerp from a  letter Mr. Roderick Robertson has in  the Nelson press:  On December 15, 1900,   the  snielt.ers  made' settlements at the rate of  $2.75^  per 100 pounds of lead, and for silver at  (j-icents per ounce.     This   year  settle-  menia were made on the 4i.h of  December at a rate for lead of $1.8773  per 100  pounds, and for silver at   54 cents   per  ounce.    On the 11th ..Decernher instant  lead was settled for at a rate of  $1.32.K  per 100 pounds, and silver at 54% cents  per ounce;   .whereas  on .the   14th   of  December instant the   basis   of' eetile-  ; menl for lead was ipl.27 per 100 pounds,  and for silver 55 cents per ounce.  ' Upon the above basis a ton of  silver-  lead ore carryum 25 per cent lead and 60  ounces of silver would have netted from  ���������  the smelters on theloth December, 1900;  for lead, 500 pounds, less smelter deduction of 10 per   cent,   which   leaves  450  pounds, at 2.75J4 per 100 pounds, equals  $12.39%;     and "for   silver   CO   ounces  less   smelter   deduction   of 5 percent  which leaves 57 ounces at.64 cents equals  !f30 48, or a total of HS-87% per ton, out  of which would have to be paid the cost  of supplies, powder,   superintendence,  labor for mining and also   for  development, before   the  stockholders obtain  dividends.  On the basis of smelter settlements at  11th December instant, silver-lead ore  cuntaining the same quantities of lead  and silver per ton, namely,' 25 per cent  lead and GO ounces silver, _ would net  before all deductions for mining, etc.,  as above, silver ^31.35, lead ij'5.71)4,  or a total of ^37.0G}.2, making a difference in the the net returns from smelters for silver-h-ad ore of the above  grade of $11.81% per ton between the  juices paid one year ago and those prevailing at present. From this it would  appear that we are receiving to-day less  than one-half for our lead than at thia  time last year aud nearly one-sixth less  for our silver.  It may interest your readers to learn  thai the drop of ������15 in the price of copper in London, from about������70 to present price of ������55, has at last affected  the New York prices, which to-day are  quoted at a drop of from 16% to 15%  cents.  In view of the above, and the fact of  the government ollVr of $5 a ton bonus  this year to lead reiir.enes and a reduction in the freight and treatment rates  of at least $5 a ton would be none too  great to induce the present shippers of  lead ore to continue under adverse circumstances of the markets.    -  The life of a mine is somewhat like that  of a patient; its profits have to he made  during the period in which ore can be  taken out, and if production is continued at very low profits, it may mean  the exhaustion of the life of a mine before even the cost of purchase and expenditure on milling machinery  been rooaid.  wmii.i i ^jt-rt^nritt.w ,  Were You Ever Satisfied  Wooden and Fibre Tulis and  Fails or Every Description.
