 ������&**"  VOL. 4'.���������NO. 30.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  the Smelter Question.  The smelter situation is getting more  serious. The Ruth closed down Monday  because they have no smelter returns  since.November, and the Whitewater ia  likely to, follow suit at any time. The  American trust on the other hand have  made no returns because they have not  used-the ores. The situation then is  they either lack , lluxes, disagree on  rates, .or they refuse to take the market  price for their bullion, and the public  have no means of knowing which circumstance is responsible for the non-  smelting. No matter which, however,  either has the same influence on.British  Columbia production. Even if the  American trust had not the.American  market by the throat, American duties  prevent the export of British Columbia  bullion across the line. The only solution is more independent smelters and  independent markets.  As we write we have before us a synopsis ofa contract of a local mine, which  shows 28 cents per c. asanetdiffereneein  favor of the American market for le������idas  against the London market; but when  conditions close that market to us, the  only-solution is make our own markets  and compete against the world. A re-  talliatory duty against American, manufactures of lead will give us our own  market as far as i<- aoes, but , that is not  large enough for our products���������we want  more. . \  The export duty, advocated by the  Nelson Tribune's exalted genius would  only deduct so .much from the value of  our product when, exporting. A bonus  on export would add: .so ..much to the  value of. our ore when going into competition with :U(e worl4,^\yhich,^appears  to bei the only solution of the:'problem;"  THE LOCAL GRAFT.

Is not that  a great undertaking for a team that won  but two matches in three years?  Mr. C.'H. Hand is ill in Butte, Montana.  B. C. Riblet has gone to Peru to erect  a tramway.  The general opinion is-the winter, is  "busted."   It has been a fine one..  G. D. McKonzie, late foreman at the  Arlington mine, died in Nelson last  week.  Col. Brayton says the K. & S. land  department is doing a large business in  farming and timber lands in several  districts these times.  Rev. .T. G. Shearer, iield secretary of  the Lord's Day' Alliance, delivered a  lecture on Sunday Observance in the  Methodist church Tuesday evening."  The Kootenaian-never speaks of the  mines tributary to Kaslo without including the Payne. Why stop there ? Why  not include the Le Roi, etc.,etc.? There  is no use in making two bites at a cherry  that way.  Six or seven young ladies of .the city  went . "Star gazing" on Wednesday  night, which might mean studying astronomy. They took with them a rev.  gentlemen to explain the gealogy of all  worlds they saw. <    ,   ���������  \Cliffe & Co. received this week a shipment of lead pencils from the Dixon Pp.'  manufacturers, San Francisco, that had  been shipped in October ��������� last. Four  months on the way;.is great speed for  AmerirahTines.

','������������������'  ; Some local.papers report'a fatal acci-;  dent, at the Queen Bess last week, by  the expiosioh.of powder. These things  are bad enough when true; but when  untrue, as this is",'they are infinitely  worse. A', man'had slight injury done to  one eye; and that is all there i9 about it.  A telegram was received Thursday  afternoon to.the effect that the Sandon  Juniors defeated the Rosslaiid club by a  score of 5 to 0. Oh enquiry it proved to  be the Intermediate team of that' town  and not the Junior League match. The  game was played to fill the change of  programme caused by the non-arrival of  the Sandon Seniors. .Unless another  change is made the Juniors are billed to  play on Saturday, and it is confidently  lioped they will-repeat the score.  Here is what the Vancouver New-Advertiser has to say of the antics of our  confrere. From the comments it will  be seen the publication of such a print  is not only a reflection on itself, but on  the business people of the city who  support it as well: "Not much, however, can be,expected of a city, the people of which support a local press which  continually reviles religion and things  decent, and favors the reduction of even  marriage to a merely business contract,  easily entered and as easily broken���������of  course; to the lasting injury of wife and  family."  Some people are more nice than wise.  The Kootenaian, for instance, has been  greatly shocked because Sandon held its  carnival so soon after the death of the  queen. We would like that print to  show where the name or memory of  our beloved sovereign is more desecrated by holding the carnival when it  was held than they would be by holding  it a month later ? Out of respect for the  feelings of sensitive people like the Kootenaian, however, the committee would  have postponed it when the death of  Her Majesty was announced, had postponement been possible without immoderate sacrifice.' When the sad news  came, however, the proceedings were, so  far completed, that the carnival either  had to go on as announced or be abandoned altogether.  A dance was held  Monday.  Remember theK. of P. dance in Bosun  Hall, New Denver, on the 22nd.  An enjoyable social was held in the  Presbyterian church Thursday evening.  Even the lawyers are affected by the  death of the queen. Q.C. is now changed  toK. C.  Sherry Burchill has started an accountant's office in E. M.Sandiland's  building.  R. F. Green, M.P.P., of Kaslo, and W.  IT. Sandiford, of New Denver, were in  town yesterday.  The Junior hockeyists defeated the  Seniors at a practice game on Monday  evening by a score of 7 to 2.  Owing to a snowslide near Bear Lake  the K. &'.'~S. train did no come in on  Thursday. It was late the following day  before the track was cleared.  The Sandon Forwarding Co. have sent  over fourteen head of mules and horses  to the Liilooet country, where they have  a contract for hauling mill machinery  for the Lome mine.  Mr. J. P. Martin, cigar manufacturer,  has had to increase the number of his  brands. He is putting -up; some fine  lines of choice Havanas, and has to  secure more help' to keep up with the  demand. ; '  We understand that a curling rink,  probably Mr. Robt. McDonald's, intends  to try conclusions with Kaslo on the  latter's ririk, either Monday or Tuesday  .evening. We'll bet dollars to doughnuts  on "Bob."  J. M.- Harris had a few men with a  horse and plow engaged in-repairing the  Recp trail this week, which had:become  all'hills and'"-hollows, thereby rendering  rawhidingTyery difficult-   "'  at Three Forks on |      HINES AND fUNING.  let  fun at coasting,is done away with, for  time at least. ���������   ..- -;  The curling now going on at Rossland  and in which Sandon is deeply interested, resulted so far as we could obtain in  reference to the Sandon players, of Hall  winning'8 out of 10 games, and M. L.  Grimmett 1 out of 5. These figures  were the standing Friday morning,-and  of course liable to be greatly altered  before the bonspeil is 6ver.'    .  Tlie teachers of the public school have  decined to hold a special visiting day on  Friday afternoon of each week. Parents  and others, who are interested in the  education of the j'oung, are cordially invited. A short programme will be rendered by the pupils, to which any assistance on the part of visitors, will be  greatly appreciated by the teachers.  Quite a few Sandonites went with  the Junior hockey team to the Rossland  carnival on Wednesday. Their bull-dog  mascot, "Junior," gaily decorated with  the club's colors, accompanied them  also. It is sincerely hoped oui boys will  return crowned with victory, thereby  retaining the cup for ever and the Junior  Hockey Championship of British Columbia for another year.  It is said the provincial legislature  will be asked to vote )f8,000 to defray the  expenses of a lacrosse team to Australia.  We sincerely hope any such proposition  will be voted down with a rush. When  the people ask for incidental expenses  for schools, roads, bridges, and other  public improvements, they are invariably told the provincial resources are  very limited. If the sports of the coast  want to win glory among our antipodes,  let them provide the money for it  themselves.  The Sandon Senior hockey clnb, to  their regret, did not participate in the  league games at tlia Rossland carnival.  The reason is they were unable to  form a team without drawing from the  Juniors. If the latter plaved early in  the week, they could play with the Seniors also, but the Junior match being  the main drawing card, not taking place  until the last day, they were debarred,  consequently, they had to abandon the  idea altogether.  The Mountain Con Company have  a tunnel contract to D. McDonald.  The Soho and Great Western, McGuigan properties, are to be worked with  larger forces in the spring.  The Wonderful has let out the five or  six men it had employed, arid may not  resume again before spring.  There are eigh't men at work on the  Kaslo group on Cody creek. A car of  ore has been shipped to Trail.  In the shaft at the lower tunnel of the  Rambler-Cariboo, two feet of clean ore  have been recently discovered.  It is generally understood the Star  mill will start up as soon as a water supply is available, which may be in a couple of weeks. .They , are not wholly  dependent on smelter whims, as they  have considerable storage capacity for  concentrates.  It is not- shown the Molly Gibson is  valueless because it has shut down.  Manager White says neglect of eastern  directors to send on the necessary cash  to operate is the cause of the shut down,  which only indicates the property has  not been,paying its way all along.  Although Mr. Alexander could not  give his 60 or 70 miners assurance they  would resume before May, it is confidently hoped smelter difficulties will be  fully adjusted long before that. There  may, however, be even "a darker hour  before the dawn'?���������that is more properties may close down before a settlement  all around is effected. As it is, 24 hours  had not elapsed before some of the men  let out were on' their way to other  camps, and probably half of them are  The children's j away by this time.; .   : '': /'';;;  I  Will Open Up the Corinth.  1 ' ���������'"'-- .! .'��������� , -z ���������   '  Harry Low and'A. Muir have leased  the Corinth group for one year and  bonded the Grehville claims, adjoining  property, from an English company.  Very Tittle work has been done on the  Corinth for the last year, shipping some  80 tons of ore in.that time. The leasees  think they will be able .in the sprinsr to  ship a car a day. as they will.have considerable development done which will  warrant that output. At the present  time work in the tunnels is being kept up.  The Vies of Rossland beat Revelstoke  at hockey yesterdey by 6 to 1. It is expected the Revelstoke team will play  a return nialch with our Seniors hereon  Tuesday.   If so, a lively game is sure.  It is estimated'there are less than 560  tons of gold in the world available for  money, or $4,000,000,000. In currency  there is about the same amount of silver  in circulation there is of gold, the world  over.

That cattle are very prone  l'owi indigestible  themi injurious  been known  to swal-  subsiahces, many of  and   even   fatal, has  to    veterinarians for   a  long time. It. is, however, regarded by  many of them as of rare occurrence,  a casualty 'worthy of note more as a  curiosity than as something demanding constant attention.  Afutppsle's on tuberculous cattle  made during the, past four years have i  shown clearly that injuries inflicted by  pointed metallic bodies are'of frequent  occurrence, and therefore of decided  economic importance.  Information gained from the above-  mentioned examinations causes us to  believe that this evil may, to some extent, be prevented. It was noticed that  wMle in certain herds nearly all animals examined were free from injuries  due to foreign bodies, in others nearly  every one was injured. On investigation it was ascertained that this difference was due to the fact that one  herd had access to   miscellaneous ob-  with almost flinty hardness. What  connection has this with horse management on the farm ? What ia the  hoof, anyhow?  Hoofs of all animals are made of  practically the same material as the  skin of the horse, the horn of the cow  and the nail of the man. The layers are  closer packed in the hoot than in the  skin, while the horn and nails are made  of die same material, but of less thickness, than the hoof. If you soak the  horns, nails and hoofs in strong soda  water the scales will separate, and  when placed under a nicroscope furnish the proof of similarity. ' Hoof,  whether alive or dead, will'' absorb  30 per cent of water, thus increasing  both its weight and bulk. Under natural conditions the horse is provided  with the required moisture ,not in the  shape of oil, of which it will absorb  only 7 per cent, but of water. If, now,  you allow a horse to stand in the  stable for a considerable time depending on the absorption of its own urine  for the water for the. hoof, you must  expect the feet to become small, possibly to crack open,, and the result,  contracted heels, wasted frog and  wbat is known as navicular diseases'.  Next, the   digestive   system   becomes  poultry are not particular. Some that  is weedy or of an inferior quality will  do. One or two good-sized bundles of  grain for each flock of 20 to 30 hens  should be spread out daily on the floor.  The unthraehed sheaves of grain should  bo stored in a shed if possible to keep  it dry and free from snow, When' the  weather permits the poultry to be out  the grain may be spread on the ground  iu tho yard.

Any person who'is fond of the study  of nature particularly of the habits of  the honey bee, can succeed, while those  w'ho still cling to the brimstone and  dishpan notion, and who shun the little  pets because they sting should avoid  this pursuit. A careless and lazy  person is sure to fail. The requirement." are tact, patience, watchfulness  and gjod judgment, and a desire to  emulate the busy humming marauder  and improve each shining hour.  .    , ^       ���������   ���������   ...  ,,.

Before giving any illustration of  thes6 statements let us see what injuries' are caused by, foreign' bodies.  Among the most frequent post-mor  tem indications of the presence of some  foreign body are evidences of an inflammatory process about the second  stomach reticulum, or honeycomb by  which it becomes fastened either to  the liver or to the diaphragm, or to  both. In the new tissue, formed by  this inflammatory process are oner or  m'ore round abscesses, or tumors,  which, when cut open, discharge afoul-  smelling pus. In some of the herds examined scarcely an animal .was free  from this inflammatory condition. The  bindingi down of the free ventral end  of the liver by inflammation is equally  frequent and accompanied by a defeneration of some of the liver tissue,  Again, the course of the foreign body  is invariably toward the lungs and the  heart. It,punctures the liver or the  diaphragm and penetrates a lobe of  the lungs or the heart. When it enters the lungs a pneumonia is usually  started which extends over the greater  part of the affected lobes. In' some  instances an abscess forms, and this  may' break into an air tube and the  contents) be discharged externally.   :  The most unfortunate and usually  fatal injury is the penetration' of the  heart by the pointed body.   Death may  come, speedily or slowly after a wasting disease, according to the nature of  the injury to the heart. In the cases  which we have seen the injury usually  resulted in an inflammation of the  pericardial sac, followed by suppuration. The pericardium becomes enormously distended with fluid a������.d pus,  This exudate compresses the heart to  sucii an extent that its action becomes  very feeble and death results from  general drop3y.  Another disease which has been lately observed by us in dairy cattle, as a  result of injury to the second stomach  by foreign bodies, is abscess' in the  liver. Sometimes (here were as many  as five or six o������ these abscesses,  each, at least us large as a hen's egg  und filled with foul pus.��������� Report Bureau; of Animal Industry.  THE HOIiSK'K FOOT.  Every farmer must have noticed that  horses grown in dry countries have  small, upright feet, and those grown  on wet, low lands have flat, wcak-  hceled ones, as a rule. Ponies grown  for: generations on steep hillsides: and  rocky heights develop a strong, high  foot, .with a small ground surface, but  stable as little as possible- and keep  them shod as short a time in the year  as possible. Give them every opportunity to get their feet on the moist  grass or ground, remembering the  maxim, "No hoof, no horse."  ORCHARD AND GARDEN.  Garden soils are seldom too rich,  Now is a good time to prune the  quince.  Do not. buy' large plants in full  bloom.  Soil and location will change the  flavor of fruits.  Give verbenas a rich but rather  light soil.  The rose is a hearty feeder. Therefore it will bear annual manuring.  Bo' not apply a mulch until the  ground is frozen reasonably hard.  The object in mulching is to preserve  as even a temperature as possible.  Plant a tree just as deep as it stood  in the nursery, allowing for the soil to  settle. '      t''  A tree will rarely do ltd best with  its' collar much too high or much too  low in the ground.  A newly translated tree should occupy a bed of fine, mellow soil with  ample room for every root. '  If trees are rather large, when planted out they had better, be staked.  Mulching the quince trees with coal  ashes now will be found a good'plan.  A little poultry manure put around  each strawberry plant now will help  to secure a thriftier growth.  It may seem strange, but It is true,  that'fruit of'fine appearance sells bet- j  ter than that of extra quality.  An unfruitful orchard may often K������  brought into bearing by a heavy application of good stable manure.  All manure for the garden should  be thoroughly rotted and fined before  applying, even if applied now.   .  With quinces it is a good plan, any  time after the leaves fall, to go carefully over the trees and cut back tho  new growth.  In keeping onion sets  through    the  I winter it should be  remembered that  a cool, dry temperature is  the essential thing.  UNTIIRE3HED GRAIN.  Save some unthrasheil grain fur the-  poultry in winter. 'It will save the  thrasher bill, and the hens will even  pay1 an extra profit on it. Wheat is  best, but rye, oats, &c, will do. Yon  need not take the beat grain, as the  ARTIFICIAL WILTED FLOWERS.  The imitators of nature in the floral  line are fast becoming serious competitors of the florists who trade in naturally grown flowers. The following  description of the latest triumph of the  artists in artificial flowers is .interesting1.  Dame Nature must spare no effort  this coming spring if sha hopes, to outdo1 Dame Art in the (production of  flowers of the field and garden. ������The  velvet geraniums, pelargoniums, roses,  poppies, fuchsias, ��������� chrysanthemums,  marguerites, tulips, etc., that make up  the floral display in the [shops just  now are marvels of loveliness in grace  and color. Every woman dressmaker  is loading the evening gowns with garlands of rich blossoms, and so strong  is tho influence of the, flowers that the  gowns are given the names of the  posies they exploit.  One orders, lor example, an orchid  dinner dress, or a geranium ball  toilet, or an '.iris opera frock, and the  whole color scheme of the costume is|  laid down with a view, to* harmonizing  with the tufts and festoons of brilliant  blooms. Enormous shoulder, knots; of  velvet roses or big pastel tinted peonies;  ornament every black dress, and, not  content, with garlanding the gowns,  women pin mighty nosegays on their  evening wraps, and their ostrich feather and chenille boas and on their chiffon and ermine inuffa,  To render the flowers even more  triumphantly- conspicuous [by gaslight, they are spangled, or glitter  with silver dust along the edges of  their velvet-and Silk muslin petals.  This very frankly announces the floral garnitures as artificial, but does  not detract from their beauty, though  one of the oddest and most interesting! species of this false flora is; the  (���������'harming wilted blooms that one artistic and enterprising manufacturer has  produced. His wilted flowers are  r.n:ide of liberty silk and are so amazingly natural in appearance that only  by. actual touch and close: inspection  can the deception be discovered.' A'  chiffon gown trimmed entirely with  pale yellow and pink wilted roses was  voted the first prize by the women at  a fashionable ball tin Now York,  where no less thnn a couple of bushel  baskets of artificial blossoms wore  used in the ornamentation of Ihe  cost union.  .Wrs. Peter Beumcr Tells How These Pills  Released Her Prom Years of Xrui-ulslac  gMtnt After Doctors ami Oilier Medicines  Uatt Failed.  Among  the best known    and most  respected residents of   the    township>  of Gainsboro,   Lincoln   county,    Ont.,  are Mr. and Mrs. Peter Beamer. For  a long time Mrs. Beamer was the victim'   of a   complication   of   diseases,  which made her life    one of    almost  constant misery, and from which she  nearly dispaired   of   obtaining relief.  To a reporter who recently interviewed her, Mrs. Beamer gave the following particulars of her illness, and ultimate cure:���������"For   some   nine years  I   was troubled with a pain    in1   Ihe  back, and neuralgia, which caused me  unspeakable     misery.     The pain    in  my back   was  so   bad   that   whether  sitting or lying down, I suffered more  or less torture.     My appetite left me,  and I suffered from headaches accompanied, by attacks of    dizziness    that  left me at times too weak   to    walk.  My nervous system   was    badly shattered,   so   that   the   slightest   noise  would startle me, and my sleep    at  night was. broken    by sheer exhaustion.   I was under the care of three  different    doctors    at   various times,  but did not succeed in getting more  than the merest temporary relief.   I  also used    several.  advertised medicines, but  with no better results.   I  was finally urged to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and got half a dozen boxes.   In the course of a few weeks   I  noted considerable improvement, and  as a consequence, I gladly continued  the  use    of    the    pills   for  several  months, with the result   that   every  symptom of the malady left me, and  I was    able to   do    my    housework  (without the least trouble.   As several  years have passed   since I have used  the pills, I feel    safe in saying that  the euro is permanent, and the result  also    verifies    the    claim* that    Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills cure when other  medicine fails."      The reporter    can  only add that Mrs. Beamer's present  condition indicates a state of perfect  health, and speaks louder than mere  words can'do, the benefit these pills  have b&en to her.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have restored more Weak and ailing women  and girls to robust health than any  other medicine ever discovered, which  in part accounts for their popularity,  throughout the world. These pills  are sold by all dealers or may be had  by mail a/t 50 cents a box, or six  boxes for $2.50, by addressing the  Dr. Williams "Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont.

There are a great many people in this  province  who  aie    looking   for great  things  from  a   proposed  "competing"  railway from the Boundary to Vancouver. As for our part, we can see nothing  in it, .or nothing in any railway movement  for   ihe  alleviation of particular  wrongs except through government control,   whenever  that  can   be   brought  about.   Everything in civilization in the  . shape  of    industrial,   commercial  and  financial interests, appears to be centering in trusts.,In our labor organizations,  we have one huge trust, in  commercial  and financial matters (he drift is that  way very rapidly;  and it is safe to say  that ten years will not have elapsed before all the railways on the American  continent      outside    of      government  control, will be one huge  trust also.    It.  is, of course, the history of  things the  world over that these trusts will not last  forever.   It will not be long in the combinations, until some interests conclude  they" are not getting what they ought to  get, anil selfishness will assert itself in a  disruption, from which the  public may  either gain or lose.  Already there are signs of breakups in  some of the labor organizations, as the  "hewers of wood" find they are made so  that agitators may make an easy living  out of them. It only requires a little  more of the coming intelligence of the  20th centur}' to make this latter fact  more readily apparent.      ,  To our mind these disruptions are  paving the way for government opportunities to purchase control, and to cooperate in the public interests,'if the  management is taken out of the hands  of partisans. It would never do for the  candidate of a dominion party to have  the nomination'of the officials and employees in tieneral.ot a railway���������political  competency would never substitute for  railway knowledge and efficiency. It  would only end in public disaster. If,  however, the railways of the country  under government control were placed  in charge of a Board responsible not to  parties, but to the people as a whole,  where partisanship would have no play  and efficiency alone would count, there  is no reason, why government control  should not be made the one thing needed by the people.

The eagerness with  which gold properties are grasped  at in  preference to  silver, in some parts of the world,  especially in Canada's eastern cities and  England, is to say the leastof it remarkable.   When the present owners bought  the Le Roi at Rossland they paid $(> a  share to the majority holders and $7.25  to many, who had smaller holdings, and  to the present, the property has paid no  more in dividends than the Payne that  has not cost the present owner* one-  quarter of the money.    A  glimpse over  the facts also shows that of the twenty-  four mines' of   British Columbia   that  have paid dividends, eighteen of them  are silver-lead properties in the Slocan,  the   whole  of   them    costing    present  owners but little more, if any, than the  present owners of the Lo Roi would ask  for that property, if it was for sale.   It  is quite true that but few silver properties prove as large institutions as in any  of the gold properties; but it is  also a  fact that it takes infinitely less capital  lo buy and work them. A half a million,  for instance, is a large price for any  silver-lead mine, while any gold property of any note runs up into manv  millions. Besides this, one-fourth'to  one-tenth of the expenditure on a gold  property in machinery and wages- produces more money in a silver-lead  property. For instance, $15 a ton is a  fair average of the value of the ore of  the gold properties of this province,  when that of but very few silver-lead  mines runs below $60, and many,of them  double that amount and more.  It is quite true silver and lead fluctuate in value, while gold never does; but  the drops by fluctuation have been so  few in mining in this country, as to out  but very little figure in a comparison of  values.  ' The consequences of a diseased condition of the stomach and digestive and  nutritive system are most disastrous to  the whole body. One by one every  organ may become involved. The misery is maddening. The most extreme  cases of "stomach trouble" and the evils  resulting from it have been cured by Dr.  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It  strengthens the stomach, purines the  blood and builds up the body with, sound  healthy flesh.  "I was taken with severe headache," writes  Thonins A. Sw.nrls, Rox 103, Sub-Stnliou C, Columbus. Ohio, then cramps in the stomach, and  my food would not digest, then kidney and liver  trouble, and my back (jot weak so I could  scarcely pet around. 1 just gnve money to the  doctors whenever I thought they would do me  any good, hut the more I doctored the worse I  got until six yenrs passed. I had become so  poorly I could only walk in the house by the aid  of chair, mid I jjo't so l.hiii 1 had given up to die,  thinking that 1 could not be cured. Then I saw  one of my neighbor boys and lie said, '"Take ray  advice and take J)r. Tierce's Golden Medical  Discovery and make a new man out of yourself."  The first bottle helped ine so r thought 1 would  get another, and after I had taken eight bottles  in about six weeks I was weighed and found I  had gained twenty-seven (r;) pounds. I have  done more hard work in the past eleven months  than I did in two years before, and 1 ntu as stout  and healthy to-day, I think, as I ever was."  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure  biliousness.  Tin: Nelson Tribune has now come to  the  conclusion   that  the   mine owners  favor, the contention of this paper instead of that of our Nelson confrere���������  that   they   approve  of  a   government  bonus instead of an export duty.    Why  any sane man should come to the conclusion they would decide otherwise, it  is   most difficult to    understand.     An.  export duty would force the exporters to  pay so much more when they sent min-  real out of the country, and to submit to  heavy smelter rates when  they did  not  export.      We    believe    the   provincial j  smelters are doing everything they possibly can  to assist the provincial   producers; but there is always  something  repugnant in human  nature when compelled to accept Hobson'-s choice.  When  smelters   are   so   numerous  in Canada  that they will compete with one another  for local   trade, the   export duty nii;:ht  work  well enough, but until  then  the  bonus on  export is certainly preferable;  W.

There are some people who say it requires judgment and foresight to make  wealth, and that*wealth  is never made  without them.   History, however, shows  wealth is often the result of accidents.  There is a  case in   point,   in   Ottawa.  Someyears before thelirstbuildingswere  erected   in   that  city, ��������� a   man   named  Sparks had assisted   his   employer   in  taking out timber on the land where the  city now  stands.   The employer failed  in his lumbering   operations,   and  was  unable to pay Sparks about a hundred  dollars or so he owed him.'  He finally,  however olfered Sparks a deed of a piece  of bush land as payment.    Sparks found  he could get' nothing else and accepted  the deed under protest as it were.    In a-  year or so after.  Colonel By commenced  the 'liideau    canal,    and    made   one  terminus of it through  the iand  Sparks  took for his pay;   With the canal  commenced, the yillage of  Bytown  sprung  up,   Sparks   selling   lots   for  the   site.

Investments in Mines.  The leading eastern newspapers are  beginning to 1 caii/.e the value of mining  investments. ���������AVi'tniWs the following  from the New York Tribune: ,  .     :  "The mining industry has paid  moreJ  dividends, compared with other industries,  than any other ' business known,  Compare the profits in mining with the  profits of .the 156,000 odd miles of railroad,with the aggregated  liabilities  of  nearly   $10,000,000,000,   then   you   see  which  pays best.    Under  the  wing of  mining there exists some of the safest  and   most   profitable   of   all   business.  Take,   for   instance,   the  twelve great  smelting companies���������the mineral pawnbrokers.   The smelting company   that  does a strictly custom  business shows  absolutely  and   unquestionably, larger  profits   than   any   other    industry   in  America.   I  know   of instances where  capital invested in  smelting companies  has been turned,live times a year, and  each time the margin of  the profit  has  been over twenty  per cent of the entire  amount handled.   They  take no  risk:  simply buy the raw gold  and  silver in  the ore, at a reduced price, extract their  cost of treatment,  and pay  the  miner  a residue.

Kiislo is asked to give a cash bonus oj  $50,000 and exemption from taxation to  the proposed smelter. This is a fair  business proposition. That town has a  debenture debt of $36,000, which plus  $50,000 would be $86,000, for a place that  will probably be 2,000 people with the  smelter hands.- We would ��������� like to see  Sandon have a smelter for a fair consideration, but even whistles may be  bought, too dear, and $30,000 debt for a  place of 2,000 people is no trifle.  tx/e Glass  Ware that is Right  FOR OVKB, I'TFTV YEARS  Mrs. WinilowN Soothing Hyrup 1ms been used  by millions of mothers for their children when  teething.   if disturbed at nivht and b'oken in  - your rent by n sink child. sulIeriiiK and crying  wltn palnof cutting leeth.

Ghill followed by fever, quick pulse,  severe pains in the eyes and forehead,  sJndi dull pains in the joints and mus-  dles, mark the beginnings of la grippe.  There is aJso hoarseness, inflamed air  passages and obstinate cough, furred  tongue, distress in the stomach, and  (diarrhoea. The one unmistakable feature of la gTippo is tho depressed spirits and weakness and debility of the  body.  fWithf theory youmg, and very old,  and with persons of low vitality, tho  danger.s of la grippe, are very great.  Pneumonia of a violent and fatal form  is a frequent rosult. It is alsocluim-  ed that very many cases of consumption can bo directly traced to la grippe.  The after-effects of ki grippe are most  often felt in tho nervous system. The  extreme debility in which this disease  leaves its victim is more than most  nervous systems can endure���������paralysis  or prostration follows.  The moat successful doctors advise  their patients to avoid exposure to  cold or ovar-exortton, and recommend  both general and local treatment.such'  ag Dr. Chase's Nerve Food to  strengthen and tone the system, and  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine to loosen the cough and protect the bronchial tubes and lungs  from threatened complications.  Any honest and conscientious doctor  will tell you that this combined treat*  meat, recommended, by Dr. Chase cannot be surpassed as a means of relieving* and curing la grippe, and restoring the weakened and debilitated body  to its accustomed vigor. Dr. Chase's!  Syirup of Liwsecd and'Turpentine is  too well known a.s a cturc for bronchitis and severe chest colds to need  comment. , Dr. Chase's Nerve Food  f*jek.s out the weak spots in the system  and builds them up. It rekindles the  vitality of persons weakened by disease, worry, or over-exertion, and cannot possibly be equalled as a restorative and reconstructant to hasten recovery from ia. grippe, and to prevent  .se-riouH constitutional complications.

JAPANESE KINDERGARTENS.  The  31 o vein rut   lla������������ Keen Mnrtrd by   Ihe  MI.s������!<iii;iii-1<'s.  The kindergarten idea is spreading.  Over in Japan it has taken firm root,  having been introduced by the missionaries. !A new field of work, has  been opened to Japanese women by  the founding of training-schools, the  graduates from them going out to establish kindergartens of their own.  The children -wjao go to Japanese  kindergartens look, e;iys a writer on  the subject, just like the dolls with  which the little folks play; except that  they are much prettier and more attractive. Each child is brought by its  mother or nurse, and is provided with  a lunch-box carefully picked at home,  The! box is made of lacquer, in three  compartments, one on top of the other, each being- filled with a different  kind of food, the most important of  all being rice.  When noon comes the children sit  down at the tables with their boxca,  a bowl of tea,, and hashi, or chop-sticks  before them. At a signal the chopsticks are lifted dipped into the tea,  and then employed i.n conveying rice  bits of meat and pickles to the small  mouths with wonderful rapidity.  The children begin to troop in at .9  o'clock in the morning.. The kindergarten generally consists of two or  three square rooms' with straw mats  on the floor. Leaving their wooden  shoes at the door, the little people, enter and how. very low, to their teachers before running to their, places. Japanese politeness is inculcated when a  child begins to crawl, and as soon as  he can stand he is taught to make a  bow. Japanese children of all ages  make deep obeisances when occasion  demands, with gravity and unconsciousness.  Although the children kneel on cushions! in their homes, in the kindergarten! the little chairs, and tables marked with squares, are used, as in this  country. The raising of silkworms  and the final winding of silk from  their own cocoons is one of the occupa-  . tions characteristic of Japanese kindergartens.

All cooks' do not understand the  different effects produced by hard  and soft water in cooking meat and  vegetables. Peas and beans cooked  in hard water containing lime or gypsum will not boil tender, because  these substances harden vegetable  cascine. Many vegetables, as onions,  boil nearly tasteless in soft water,  because all the flavor is boiled out.  The addition of salt often checks this  as in the case ol onions, causing the  vegetables to retain the- ��������� peculiar  flavoring principles, besides such  nutritions matter as might be lost in  ������of1   water.  THE CHILDREN'S ROOM.  Every house which shelters children  should have, if   possible, Its' children's  room.   ��������� In   this   iroom   the   children  < should   (be   allowed    perfect    liberty.  There should be an opportunity to   do  anything, from   (making    mudpies to  painting in watercolors.     A deep tray,  lined with zinc and filled with sand,  will furnish material for the mudpies,  and serve to teach    manyf    a    geography lesson as well. There should be  totals for the boy who likes them, and  a kitchen, and all that belongs to it,  should be provided   ������for the   domestic  child. . lA. portion of tho floor should  be left bare, so   that   poller   skates  need not be prohibited.     There should  bc< chairs and tables to suit the sizes  of the different owners of the room,  and plenty of them,   (so   that if Jess  wants  to "play toa" and Jack  wants  to draw and Jenny wants to cut out  dolls-   clothes,   all   may be accommodated.   A blackboard or   two,   some  simple   gymnasium apparatus, a desk  or two, a set basin and   tfaucet, and,  if possible, a typewriter, will add to  the, value otf the children's room.  KEEPING FUNERAL FLOWERS.  It is a sad fact that the floral tributes, to the dead from their living  friends fado and become unsightly so  soon. The following recipe for preserving flowers enables them ,to be  kept almost indefinitely as a remind  er, of friendly good-will.  To preserve the flowers they should  be fresh and firm, of pure white or  delicate tints, without green leaves.  If a bouquet is to.be preserved without taking the flowers apart the leaves  ab lpast will have to be replaced with  some other substitute, as. the process  does not apply to them a3 well as to  the flowers themselves. Take paraf-  fino of the best quality and melt it  in a tin cup set in hot water, which  may be kept boiling around it so as  to keep the paraffine in a liquid state  for use.  ��������� Into this thin and transparent mass  dip the blossoms or, if found more convenient,, brush them quickly with a  small brush, so as to give them a very  thin coat that will cover every part of  each petal, and this will form a casing! about them that will entirely exclude the air and prevent their withering.  The transparency of the metal renders this coating almost or quite Invisible, so that the flowers present  that natural appearance which constitutes their peculiar charm. Green'  leaves, if preserved in this .way, must  be coated with green wax, or with  paraffine prepared with the addition  of green powder paint. Chome green  is best. Lighten to any tint required by  adding chrome yellow. Wax leaves  well made, may be used to very good  advantage,  or moss will answer very  well  for a background  or  foundation A USELESS REMINDER,  for, the flowers.

It means  the surrender of youthful forces to  conquering time. The supply of pigment is becoming exhausted. The  only way to restore it is to send the  vital current bounding through all the  minute blood vessels, and, like a touch  ta the mainspring of a silent watch,  all the delicate machinery is set in  motion.  Scalp massage, is a powerful auxiliary to hair health. It can be performed by hand, by a specialist, but  easily and efficiently by any one with  a scalp massage roller, with rubber  wheels.which turning separately bring  to bear an even, alternating pressure  TOO MODERATE.

No  doubt the building of the proposed smelter at Kaslo had something to do with  the trip. It is considered within the  possibilities of the knowing ones the K.  & S will soon be made a standard guage  road, and that there will be a union  station here for all purposes. Possibly,  this latter is an element under consider-  tion by the visitors.  Queen Victoria's Death.  ' There never was such interest aroused  over the death of one monarch and the  accession of another as in the case of  Victoria and Edward VLI. The Family  Herald and Weekly Star, of Mentreal. is  being widely comulimented on the  splendid way it reported and treated of  these two important events. No other  paper ou the American Continent even  approached the Family Herald and  Weekly Star in the completeness of its  reports and profusencss of its illustra-  trations. The circulation of the Family  Herald is increasing by leaps and  bounds. It is no wonder. A paper that  is so superbly equipped for all emergencies deserves success.  Mining at Whitewater.

Giegerich,  11EC0 AVENUE.  Head Office-  Stores at  -Nelson, B.C.  -    Iw  The Hillside mine is to be started up  again at once with a full force of men.  Up to the present some $20,000 has been  Fpent on this property, most of the.  money was spent in development, work.  The two tunnels are 700 and 450 feet in  length carry good show ings of ore. For  some time irregular shipments of ore  have been made.  A. J. Drewry visited the Sunset group  this week' He says that the property  i������ making a showing equal to any other  property in the district. Two tunnels  oT 100 and 300 feet are being lengthened.  Stoping and developing is pushed more  than any other work in this mine, consequently very little shipping iK done.  The Whitewater mill closed down  this week, on account of the smelting  troubles. ;  The Ups and Downs in Mining.  The lot of the miner in this or any  other country is no sinecure. He strikes  a job today, which means while he is at  it fair wages and fair hours for hard  ���������work underground, compared with work  in a dry, clear, out-door atmosphere,  none too favorable conditions, and often  under very unfavorable surroundings.  He earns a little money, and but too  often spends it unwisely. After a time  that may be long or it may be very  short, sickness, shut-downs,. lay-oil's,  &c, follow, that consume every dollar he  has saved, that is if he has saved any,  and he stands strapped. But then he is  not the only man that is often strapped  in a business of the uncertainty of mining. Very often too the man who has  put his last hard earned dollar and those  of his friends into "mines," becomes  strapped as well, so that one class cannot always look with envious eyes on  the other. About all that can be done  under the circumstances is for the legislature to see that the owner and manager observe every precaution for the  safety of life and limb of the employes,  and that the latter take proper care of  their earnings to provide for "rainy  days."  Dr. Power was too modest to inform  the R-Evruw scribe he had been sent for  by Mr. Hughes last week to attend Rod.  Cameron, who met with the fatal accident. The doctor, when he received the  'phone message, got on an engine here  at the time, and on another waiting al  the Forks when he reached there, and  made the entire distance in less than  half an hour.
