Tlie Slocan.  ti,f w.aVaonnderway for 14 ckims in  the \\ lute Grouse Basin, owned by Mrs.  Jiarris, ofJvaslo, and others. The probable purchasei is P. Corcoran, of San  Jrancisco .tor California and Now York  paitres. The price is $125,000, A suit  as been instituted, hut it is thought for  e!oSronlv.Se ������l brinBIng the matler t0 a  compliment ot men again, several new  men being among those recently employed, it is believed thev have made  satisfactory arrangements for handling  their output.   "'    ��������� ������l  Tlie American Boy is also putting on a  full torce of men, 35  being now employed; and it is   said   tho   forre will be increased  to 50 within  a month.    When  the American   Smelter Combine refused  to-renew tlie   old   contract, some   men  were dropped, but these and others have  recently been taken on again.   The staff  is at present employed  in  No. G tunnel  J  which is now in some 400   feet  on   the  lead.   The vein a verges about nine feet  in width, and carries about 2l4 feet of  ore on an average. The mine is'shipping  about 25 tons of ore a week, which runs  well on to $100 a ton in silver  and   lead  values averaging-porhaps $00, which is  about  the average of   the camp.   It is  thought that within a month the output  will be doubled.  The Last Chance dropped about 20  men the other dav, but still has on a  force of over GO, and is shipping some  live cars a week, and often running.one  a day. If nothing-intervenes.to prevent  it. this mine will be a heavv shipper  this year. " i  The Sovereign is operating all told  some 25 men, and has quite a quantity  of ore in sight. Mr. Ransom, thu manager, expects the property .will be a regular shipper tlie present year.  This locality is the possessor of many  other valuable properties, not the leas't  of  which   is' the   Trade  Sandon Winter Carnival.  A meeting of the citizen was called on  Wednesday evening, and it wa6 decided  to have a winter carnival, to take place  on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,  and Thursday, January 28th  to 31st.  Subscriptions will be canvassed for  and .f5.00 tickets issued which will give  the purchasers thereof access to all the  events during the three days' sport.  The following committees were appointed to look after the management:���������  Finance���������T. B. Folliott, Jas. Vallance,  P. Johnson and D: A. Carmichael.  Sports���������Thos. Brown, J. Crawford, C.  Walmsley, Jas. Williamson, A. Grierson,  A. E Hall, E. M. Sandilands and Win.  McAdam.  Printing���������Wm.   McAdam and C, V  Cliffe. '  On Monday evening next the committees will meet and arrange the general carnival programme and complete  all necessary arrangements.  Messrs. Houston aud Harbour are arranging with the railwav companies for  special rates.  So far arrangements have been completed with some of the outsidg hockey  and r urling clubs, and the prizes will be  mentioned later. The curlers have put  up the Bostock and- Harris trophies for  the bonspeil contest.  The carnival should be a success in  every way, as Sandon has some of the  leading hockeyists and curlers in the  province and one of the finest rinks in the  country. The citizens have taken hold  of the matter and everything points to  success. - ���������  THE LOCAL QRAFT.  late snows have improved raw-  The  hiding  Mrs. Robt.

Gentlemen:���������In reply to your letter of inquiry  (dated the 9th inst.) relative to the Prospector's Furnace I purchased of you three years  ago,T would say that 1 have used it for smelting  ttutimonial, silver, lead and other ores, and the  retorting of zinc ore by means of the crucibles.  Its performance is in every respect satisfactory.  I consider it a most valuable adjunct to the  office, because of its utility in smelting sample  lots of ore.   Yours truly,  W. ALBERT CHAPMAN.

He is not even likely to vote in the coming election.  Mr. Todd is again at his old post as  foreman for H. Byers & Co., after several weeks'consultation with the best  western doctors as to proper treatment  for his eyes. It is a matter of deep regret that he got but little encouragement from any medical man he consulted. The sight of one eye is almost  gone and that of the other considerably  impaired.  With .one accord throughout the  I length and breadth of the Dominion  readers of all classes of newspapers unite  in saying that if there is one paper  which should be in every household, it  is the Family Herald and Weekly Star  of Montreal. Subscriptions are pourin<*  into their office in "Montreal at a tre"  memdous rate. Canadians without the  Family Herald and this season's pictures, do not know the 1 treat they are  missing. \  We are not sure that all this.drainage  of sewers, closets, stables, '&c.y'.into the  flume is a good thing for the pjace���������in  fact we think it will prove a bad one  later on. .When the Ivanhoe iiill, in  low water, takes its quota frorn the  creek, but a small body will come \iown  the flume���������not enough to wash away all  the impurities emptied into it, and diseases will be sure to follow.

':?'������-:  .INSECT DESTROYERS.'  Orchardiats generally claim that the  \hog ia a great insect destroyer. It  " eats the if ruit that prematurely drops,  which is generally considered wormy.  Perhaps, on closer examination we  find that a considerable portion oi  the dropped fruit contains no worms, i  While the. fruit was still hanging on  the trees the matured worms escaped. .  Some careful observations were  made by experiment stations by plac-  ��������� Lng several bands around the trunks  of trees. They found that the upper  bamds caught about twice as- many  "worms aa the Lower oues. This! indicates that twice as many worms  crawl down the truinik as' up. Chickens ia aa orchard eat a great many  woraia before they reach their hiding J  placa.  Turkey*    are recognized  as grasshopper      exLor^ainpif^rs.      Chiclk.eims  have    a reputation    for    scratching. !  They tk> not   perform   this    work in j  vuia.   Their object is to bo. paid for ;  their  daily    labor.    Their   inclination j  Ls not to destroy the crop, as wc often :  imagine    The  trouble is  the old  hen '  lacks judgment when, where and bow j  to scratch.   .Chickens'  imagine    that  the soil ia everywhere filled, with ia- j  sects, he-rice  they  dig  away   without I  ; any respect to  the growing  crop.  We should induce   the chickens  in I  the fall and spring tu> scratch among  th& tree-s, bushes a<nd vines..     In early  sprung how anxiously they turn over  all leaves a:ud  rubbish.   In niany instances they do a perfect job of hoe-  Lug.   Not only do they eat- many in-  , sects"fah������l; do damage above and below the ground,    ibub by-   their, continual  fioratohiiriig    they    may  inter- j  fere    with    the  development ot    the  spores of fungous diseases.  The old 'hen is. worth more than u  hog as'-a'a imsect, destroyer.   The hen  W' .���������"'���������:���������"  Ls considered a bigger nuisance than  she really is. ��������� If wu would only remember, that she takes tbe place of  paria grcein and sulphate of copper,  and. whan her work Ls done confine  her safely as we store away the Paris  green, th������u she would bd no longer  considered a nuisance.  GEESE  FOR  PROFIT.  Geas-i three or "lour years old are  the oes!". breeders.  G^e-w usuailly sell best La tho fall  and early in the winter.  Geeae begin laying late in January  or early im February.  Aoe&s to water and a grass run  are absolutely necessary ia breeding  geese.  When hatching, the geese should  be interfered with aa little as possible.  ���������Far practical purposes there is  really vacy little choice between^ the  Toulouse rwid Ermbden varieties.  The gwose warats to make her own  nest, and will not like thei turkey,  allow  herself  to  be set anywhere.  The goose will lay .from 10- to 15  eggs awl then sit diligently on them,  aud seldivm fails to bring- off a good  [brood.  Geese will come nearer living on  pasture, aind taking care of themselves iilnwii any other class of poultry  GoslLriiga came in for the: table- as  "grecu geese" in the summer, and  should be fine birds for the Michael-  maa  board.  The Chinese geese,  both the white  and gray varieties,   are    very ornamental, and make an attractive) appearance on a body of water.  Agand&r    and a ctouple-    of   geese j  are sufficient to start with,.for their  eggs, as a rule, are very fertile, and  they are excellent sitters.  Geese should have a house to themselves and be plentifully supplied with  straw, with which to make their nests  on the floor.  At 10 weeks of age, or when (he  tips of the wings reach the tail, young  geese are ready for market,' and  should weigh between eight and'nine  pounds.  t It is best to remove the egg sheila  for the unhatched eggs sometimes get  inside them and the goslingsi are unable to. break the double, shell.  HEADING PEACH TREES.  The peach fru.Lt is bonne only on  shoots of ithe previous season's  growth, aind unless the production of  young shoots is secured by the  healthy growth of tha tree good fruit  cannot be expected. In order to  secure a more plentiful growth of  youug wood it may bo advisable fo  cut off occasionally a portion of the  tops of peach trees of bearing' age,  especially when their growth seemed  to be checked aind i afiterr beariiuigi a  full crop of fruit. This is" called  "heading them off," and consists in  cutting off all the liiab.s or branches  at from one third to oine������.half of the  length, thus removing one half or  more of the tops. This will' cause  them to throw ouit new shoots aud  form new heads, with hotter foliage  and finer fruit���������especially if in the  spring a dressing of ashes or manure  is applied to the land, and' fair culture bestowed.  Pruning of peach trees is usually  deferred uin,til spring-, so as to; give  opportunity to observe the effect' of  the winter upan the fruit buds, as  severer pruning is given wheni there  is little*, or  mo prospsiat  afi" fruit.  HORSE TALK.  Never go near your horse without  speaking  to him.  A horse can travel better and with  less wear and  tear iif ho is free.  Use a check rein with tha. bitting  rig and when training, hull? when' the  colt has completed his education and  can be used for .regular driving take  it off.  Breed horses with sityle aind' spirit  einiough to hold their heads up  naturally.  Encourage your horses to lie down  by making their stalls comfortable.  The more thoy rest the, better.  If heated do not'let him fill up, but  but  give a little  at  every  trough."  Take a barrel of water to the field  and give the work horses1 a fev/  moulhfuls every hour or so. It will  help them as much as it' will yourself. , ' >  Low mangers are best. Keep them  scrupulously clea:n. Any accumulation in the corners will soon sour in  hot  weather.  Do not allow the dried .perspiration  to remain iu the hair every night.  It will cause the coat to fade.  A good brushing will rest the horse  aud is almost as essential as the feed.  Take the horse out on the floor or  out Ln open air and it can be' cleaned  quickly  and  thoroughly.  A   WONDIiRFCJL  OLD  LADY.  Lord Rosebery's mother, tho duchess of Cleveland, is a wonderful old  lady. Though she is in her eighty-first  year she is full of energy and is a  delightful companion. The London  King mentions, us. an illustration of  her activity, that she did not indulge  her love for travel until she was over  70 years of age, and since then she  has made many a journey, including  a tour to India, the West Indies and  British South Africa. The duchess  was married to the late duke of Cleveland in 1854, three years' after the  death of. Lord Dalmeny, Lord Rose-  bcry's father.  .  WINDMILLS    FOR DYNAMOS.  A new idea for utilizing the power of  the wind in' order to produce electricity has just been .successfully tried.  Windmills are too uncertain to permit! of their being used for driving  dynamos, so ib is proposed that windmills be used to pump water into a  high reservoir or tank, and this water  would drive a dynamo in an ordinary  way by means of a turbine. Although  the windmill might work fitfully, it  would be sufficient! to keep up a constant supply of water so that the production of electricity would; be continuous.  IS BRET OLD EMLMD.

In this practical age-a physician's  ability is measured by the actual cures  h������ makes. Judged by this high standard' Dr. Chase stands pre-eminent as  a gia.nt among physicians. Take kidney and liver derangements, fo'f example. Dr. Chase, by means of his  Kidney-Liver Pills, has brought about  some of the most surprising cures ever  effiecteld. This is due to the direct and  specific action of this great home  treatment on the liver and kidneys'.  Here; is the experience of a highly respected  resident of Consecon, Ont.:���������  Mr. James Dellihunt, Consecon,  Prince Edwair County, Ont., writes:  " For several years I suffered great  tortures of mind aind body from  Bright'sl disease of the kidneys. The  pain3 were sometimes almost beyond  endurance, and extended from my  head and between the shoulders down  the whole spinal column and seemed  to, concentrate across my kidneys. My  back was never entirely free from  pain. IWhen I feioft up in the morning I could not straighten myself at  ail, but would Igo bent nearly double  nwe/t nil day.  My w.aUar waa ocanty  and at other times1 profuse, and it gave  me. great pain to urinate.  "I coiuld do no work, and though I  tried many kinds of kidney pills,  could iget no relief. As a last resort  I iwas; induced by a friend to give Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills a trial. I  felt a, change after the first dose. I  used in all about five boxes, and they  have entirely cured me. I have no  pains now, and can do as good a  day's work as I ever could. It ia a  pleasure for ante to recommend Dr.  Chase's Kidmey-Liveir Pills, as they  have done rso rnuchi for me." '  Mir. J. J. Ward^ J.P., Consecon, certifies that he has known Mr. Dellihunt foir .years as a truthful (man and  respected citizen, and vouches for  the truth t)f  the above statement.  You cannot possibly obtain a more  beneficial treatment for the kidneys  and liver than Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills. It jhns stood the test of  time and has proven beyond dispute  itts rig-hit to the title of "the world's  greatest kidney (medicine." One pill a  dose, (25 penta abox^ ab allyiealers, or.

At Ipswich a few days ago, a tim-  beryard foreman found in a timber  stack near the dock a signal shell,  otherwise a rocket, and without examination placed it beside a workman named Arthur Branch, who  made an effort to examine the interior of the rocket, and was! immediately killed, while two other  men were so badly injured that they  are not expected to recover.

Tiiui's    l-.i  Adventures of varied nature belonged to the old English mail-coach days.  One of the most1 thrilling episodes of  the road occurred ��������� one night on the  ���������way from Salisbury to London, in  1816.  As the coach went bowling along,  the horses suddenly became extremely  nervous, and what was1 thought Lojoe  a large calf was iseeu trotting along  beside the left leader in the darkness. As they neared the inn the  hiorses became uncontrollable; and  then the Supposed calf seized one of  the animals. By this time the horses  were frantic, plunging aud kicking,  and it was remarkable that the coach  was not overturned.  The guard laid hold of his gun a  was about to shoot the assailant, when  several meu, accompanied by a large  ��������� mastiff, appeared. The foremost,  seeing that the guard was about to  fire, pointed a pistol at his head, declaring 'that he would shoot if the  beast was killed.  The "calf" was. a lioness, escaped  from a travelling show. The dc-g  was set upon tha brute, who left tho  horse, seized the mastiff and tore him  to pieces, and retreated under a granary. The (spot was barricaded to  prevent her escape,.and she was noosed and returned, to captivity.  : The horse which had been seized  was seriously injured by the lioness',  but finally recovered.    ���������  ���������'���������   ������������������~*������". ������������������������������������ '������������������'  FLINGS ��������� AT .THE FAIR  SEX.

Although it is the general belief,  founded upon observation, that cyclists are yearly decreasing L-in number, the old riders claim that while  the faddists have disappeared, thu'e  is an actual increas-i in regular cyclists. Wheelmen are no longer conspicuous, because they do not spend  their time running up and down the  street to "show off," but a great  many mere wheels than formerly are  used for purely business purposes.  The bicycle is no longer a mere vehicle  for pleasure.  !f You Want a Rear ly Good TEA, then Use  FOR AULD LANG SYNE.  Ladies of Cauada :  "Should old acquaint;!nee be forgot?" The answer comes mechanically from every Britisher. Nor should  new acquaintance be forgot. Remember, that on the bloody fields of South  Africa your brave soldier boys were on  the firing line, flanked by loyal British subjects from Ceylon and India.  In the midst of danger, lasting friendships were formed, and you, ladies of  Canada, have it in your power to cement those bonds. The Green teas of  Ceylon and India appeal to you  from sentiment. By using them you  not only aid your brother colonists,  but you get absolutely the best tea.  Those of you who drink Green Japan  teas' have a. revelation in store if you  make tho change.

There Is more Cntarrh in this section of the  country than all other diseases out together,  and until the last few years was supposed to ha  incurablo. For agroiib many yenrs doctors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local  remedies, and by corstantly fxiliug to cure with  looal treatment, pronounced it incurable.

The Mining Review  SATURDAY, JANUARY 12,  1901.  THE SMELTER QUESTION.  It must be evident to all who look  carefully into the matter, that the own-  era of the silver-lead mines of the province have a work of large magnitude  before them that they must undertake  sooner or later. To the present they  have been depending on the American  Smelter combine to purchase their output; but now they refuse to make further con tract!) on terms that the B.C.  owneri feel they can accept. The Smelter .Combine give as their reason,for  refusing to renew tho late contract, that  at the rates in that contract they cannot  find a satisfactory market. As we understand it, ore ia admitted to the States  at a low rate of duty when required for  home consumption; but subject to a  much higher duty when required for export. This, it will be seen, is nicely  drawn legislation in the interest of the  Smelter ComDine, and has to be met  some way.  Most people think thisjs simply a ruse  on the part of thu American Combine to  force better terms and enable them to  make more monev.^If.this is true it only  the more definitely, forces a duty to  themselves upon the B.C. owners. Supposing they were through a horse swopping process to make arrangements now  that would fairly meet present needs  with the prices of silver and lead as high  as they are, it is no guarantee that the  combine would not later strike for better rates again win n our owners were at  a much greater disadvantage���������when the  metals were much lower the world over.  It appears to us the conditions bring  around an occasion when the owners  should take a definite stand in theirown  interest���������when they should own their  own samplers, smelters and refineries if  necessary. The countries besides the  U. S. that import silver and lead are  well known. A little enquirey would  familiarise the owners with their tariffs  and the forms in which the products of  the mines could be sold in those countries. With this knowledge preparation  for these markets would be the only  questions to deal with.  As the other smelters of the province  have been built by private capital, the  Silver-lead Mines Association cannot  well expect either government to bonus  the erection of smelters; but they could  ask for assistance in the shape of bonus  or bounty in export, as that would apply  to the products of all the smelters of the  province.  It is an old and true saying that "God  helps those who help themselves." A  front then showing the American Combine that they were in a position to help  themselves on tlie part of the local men,  would soon bring the combine down to  proper business lines.  As we have intimated above, even if  the present deadlock was broken and  suitable terras were made across the  lines, it might be for but a short time���������  the difficulty in an even more aggravated  form might appear again 011 a very slender pretext. If the owners had in their  hands the second means of handling  their products, they would always be  sure oi one satisfactory market at least.  If our townspeople and city council  ���������were to assist the owners in these matters instead of quarrelling over the appointment of policemen and clerks, they  DISEASE  and discomfort are not-ease  and not-cornfort. Ease is  health; so is comfort.  You may as well be comfortable ; that is healthy; as animals are. It is natural, both  for you and for them.  If your ill health is caused  by imperfect digestion, try  Scott's emulsion of cod-liver  oil.    It does what it does by  disposed to carry out the wishes of  Messrs. David and McAdam, Mr. Gunning,. as Mayor, might attend often  enough to turn out the officials that are  obnoxious to these gentlemen and supplant them by the friends who are waiting for berths, but this would hardly  meet with the highest expectations of  the rest of the people of the city. Come,  gentlemen, let us have the full policy of  of the "coming" successors to the aldermen who are to be turned down, as we  want to look it over before polling day.  w. S. Drewry ,       ,  H. T.

We'll send you a little to try il you like.  SCOTT & BOWNE, . Chemists, . Toronto.  would be showing a ltttlo horse sense at  least. The council could by issuing debentures bonus a smelter, and doubtless  there are many citizens who could take  more or less stock in it, and both would  materially assist in not only establishing  an important industry in our midst, but  also largely help in keeping a largely  increased staff in all the mines tributary  to the city.  'Messrs. David and McAdam appear  bent on turning Mayor Pitts and aldermen ,Crawford, Hunter and Atherton  and perhaps others of the council out of  office the coming elections, and so far as  the public can see for no other reason  than that they refuse to dismiss a couple of officials and put other men who  want the jobs in their places. This will  hardly appear as sufficient reason, to  the majority of the electors, for a change  of council. That this appears to be the  only reason for a demanded change is  apparent from the. fact that in a two-  'column letter last week condemnatory  of the council, Mr. David refers to no  other matters. As we have before frequently intimated there are many electors in the city who are aware the present council is not absolute perfection;  but they want to see the men with then-  policy that are to supplant them before  they cry "Turn the Rascals out." We  have heard the names of several "coming substitutes, but so far we have heard  nothing of their promised reforms. This  won't do. Tha taxpayers want the measures as well as the men, before they  transfer their confidence. Mr. R. Cunning has been named as the coming  mayor. Mr. Cunning is kno vn to be a  very honorable man, but he is wholly  without experience in public matters.  It is true he was one year an alderman,  and if the records were available and examined, it would be seen he did not attend more than one-third of the sittings,  and towards the end of his terra was so  seldom there, that the Board .seriously  thought of declaring his seat vacant and  holding a new election. He waa elected  to look after certain interests���������he would  urge them at times, and whenever he  could not have his own way, he would  refuse to attend the meetings altogether.  This, certainly, is not the service the  people look for in their representatives.  The coming year will have urgent and  unremitting duties for every member of  the council, and a mayor, attending as  Mr. Cunning attended when he was  alderman, would, to say the least of it,  prove   unsatisfactory.   If  elected,  and  We don't often ag'-ee with the Nelson  Tribune, but when it says the govern-  ,ment ought to make provision for adequately pensioning all Canadians who  return from South " Africa seriously  wounded, it echoes onr sentiments exactly. Wo would go farther and say it  ought to provide for the families of all  who were killed in the war, and leave  families unprovided for. In short we  would go even farther, and say railwa\  and other corporations,including mining  companies, ought by statute, to be held  resnonsible for accidents where the injured were themselves in no way responsible for them. When sober, steady  brakeinen are hurt or killed by falling  from trains or by coupling cars, railways  should be made responsible; and when  miners are killed by defective machinery or improperly protected workings,  the owners should be made responsible.  Fortunately, as far as the Slocan is concerned, no serious accident has ever yet  occurred through the negligence of the  foreman or owners.  John Houston fully approves of Mc-  Adams anti-Christian and anti-Bible  theories; but then "Birds of a feather  flock together." AH great minds run in  the same groove.  Frolicking with her baby makes one of  the prettiest spectacles ever seen in the  home. But nothing is sadder to see than  the unhappy mother, weak and nervous,  striving in vain to hush the cries of her  weak and nervous babe. There can be  no happiness for  either mother or  child without  health. Doctor  Pierce's Favorite  \ Prescription " has  done wonders" for  many a woman,  by restoring her  health and opening for her the way  $M to happy mother-  jgg hood. This really  wonderful medicine is not a cure-  all. It is a preparation specially designed to cure diseases peculiar .to  women. It dries  ^ debilitating drains,  heals inflammation  and ulceration,  cures female weakness, and removes  the causes which  generally make  women nervous  and sleepless.  There is no alcohol in " Favorite  Prescription" and  it contains no opium, cocaine or other  narcotic.  Mrs. James W. Blacker, of 629 Catherine Street, Syracuse, N. Y., writes: "Your  medicines have done wonders for me. For  years my health was very poor; I had four  miscarriages, but since taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and 'Golden Medical Discovery,' I have much better health, and now I  have a fine healthy baby."

Sandon, B.C.  150 Barrels  Canada is fast becoming known as one  of the chief mineral-producing countries  in the world and some  day it may rival  theTJnited States.  That country amassed  seven-eighths of  a billion last year.  The details are given  by David T. Day,  chi^f of the division of mining and mineral resources of the United States Geological Survey.   The   total value  of all  the minerals produced during   the   last  calendar   year   amounted to $876,008,-  046. against $697,820,790 in 1899, an increase of $288,188,226,  or practically 40  per cent.   This increase was the   most  notable in the   history of  the   mineral  industry, the previous  largest   increase  being from 1890 to 1S95, when the value  advanced about 18 per cent.   The production from 1890 to 1898 has exceeded  $660,000,000 in every year except two,  the panic years of 1893 and 1894.   The  average yearly production  from 1890 to  1898 inclusive ;was $618,286,510, making  the production  in  1899  $259,721,536, or  58 per cenU in excess of the average for  that period.  The greatest increase in 1899 was in  the value of pig iron product, which increased to $245,172,654, or about 110 per  cent, over 1898.   The enormous increase  was due to the phenomenal demand and  '.high prices.   The increase in coal production   added   over  $48,000,000, or 23  per cent.- to the 1898 value,   Copper increased   nearly   60,000,000    pounds   in  quantity and over $42,000,000 in  value,  the ruling prices being higher than for a  number of years past,   Crude petroleum  advanced nearly $20,500,000, or about 45  per cent., due   principally to  advanced  prices, the   production   increasing  less  than 4 per cent.   The value of the natural gas consumed in 1899 is placed at  a little over $20,000,000. against $15,300,-  000, due  entirely to   the  higher prices  eharged.  An increase of about 10  per  cent., or  ���������'���������'from ��������� $64,463,000  in 1898 to $71,053,400  in 1899, is show in gold production. Tiie  production of silver showed a very small  increase.   Lead production decreased 6  per cent., but increased over $2,000,000  in value.   Spelter increased to 119,408  short tons, valued at $13,731,920.   The  building stone industry increased nearly  $8,000,000.   The total value of the metallic product in 1899 was $527,218,084, an  increase of 54  per  cent.   Nqnmetallic  product increased 27 per cent.'to $447,-  790,864.   Every year since 1889 to 1898  inclusive, the value of the non-metallic  production has exceeded the mettalic,  but in 1899   the  metallic exceeded   bv  $79,500,000.    A   change  of  nearly $90,"-  000,000 occurred in   the   relative values  between 1898 and 1899.   Unprecedented  actively   and   advanced  values   were  shown "in nearly every of the mining industry during 1899.  Everybody Wants  the Best Coal.

Boil one and a half pints  milk, to which has been added one  teaspoonful and a half of corn starch  or flour if preferred, ,to make a  cream. Add one teaspoonful of butter. Drain the celery and stir into  the  cream   and servo.  Baked Trout.���������Cover the bottom of  a small oval paper form, with a few  very thin slices of fat b:icon, cut down  the back some nicely-washed small  trout, and having removed the bones,  lay the fish open flat upon the ba-  co/n; sprinkle with chopped parsley,  pepper, salt, a little mace, and two  cloves finely pounded. Bake 30 minutes in a quick oven.'  iVeal Cutlets.���������Melt a piece of butter* in the frying pan ; put in the cutlets with salt, pepper and some spice;  move them about in the butter for  five minutes ; have ready some mixed herbs and mushrooms chopped finely; sprinkle half over one side of the  outlets', and, when fried enough,  turn and sprinkle them with the other half; finish frying and add the  juice of a lemon; set them round the  dish with the seasoning in the center.  Roast Pigeons.���������Pick, draw and  truss them, keeping on the feet. Chop  the liver with some parsley, and  crumbs of bread, pepper salt and a  little butter ; put this stuffing inside.  Slit one of the legs', and slip the  other through it, skewer and roast  them half an hour ; baste them well  with butter. Serve with brown gravy  in a boat and bread sauce.  Creamed Sweet Potatoes.���������Select  one dozen large, smooth sweet potatoes ; bake until just done; cut a hole  in each large enough to admit the  handle of a teaspoon; through this  aperture remove the inside, whip with  fork,- add a little butter, salt, and  very little pepper; return to skin, put  back in oven long enough ��������� to heat  through.   Serve.  Mince Pies.���������Take equal weights of  tender roast beef, suet, currants,  raisins and apples which have been  previously pared and cored, with half  their weight of soft sugar, one ounce  of powdered cinnamon, an equal quantity of candied orange and lemon peel,  arnd citron, a little salt, and 12 sour  almonds blanched and grated. . Chop  the meat and the suet separately;  wash' and pick the currants, stone the  raisins and chop them with the peel;  and having minced all the ingredients very fine, rnix them together,  adding a nutmeg.  Fruit Cake.���������One pound of flour, one  of sugar, three quarters of butter, two  of raisins, two of currants, one of citron, a half an ounce of mace and a  .wine glass of brandy, one of wine,  eight eggs, stir the sugar and butter to a cream, add the flour gradually, then the wine, brandy, and spice;  add the fruit just before it is put in  the pans. It takes over two hours it  the loaves are thick.  Orange Ice Cream.���������One quart cream  three quarters of a pound of sugar,  juice of five oranges, rind of one  orange. Put half of cream in double  boiler ; add sugar and stir till dissolved ; add remainder of cream, and when  cool add juice and rind\ of oranges.

In hot breakfast, cakes or muffins,  eggs are an element that often toughens;- the bread without adding any desirable quality. Do not use,more than  two eggs, as a rule, to a pint of milk  in wheaten cakes. One is generally  enough. The quantity of eggs to be  used in corn-meal cake, varies with  the taste, as this meal, is so granular  there is no danger of making a tough  cake from it. A sweet cake made of  the whites of eggs can be as easily  rendered tough and unfit for food by  too liberal use of eggs as a cake can  be made heavy and greasy by too liberal use of butter.. Where eggs are  used in a cake like sponge cake.which  had no bfutleir in it to render it tender, the juice of a lemon should be  added. The yolks of eggs do not make  a nice icing, imparting an eggy taste  very disagreeable to most people. The  whites of eggs should alone be used.  HOUSEHOLD HINTS.  If .'you want your windows to be  clear and bright add a little ammonia  to the water and wash thoroughly.  Use no soap as it leaves the glass of  a milky color. You cannot obtain satisfactory results by wiping them off  with a wash cloth. They must be  washed with plenty of water, dried  with clean cotton cloths and polished with chamois: or soft paper.  An excellent material for a clothesline is the ordinary telegraph wire  which is now sold for that purpose  in hardware stores. It will outlast a  dozen hempen lines. When it is properly put up by a strong man, it does  not sag like the other lines, it does  not break, and it is not unsightly because it is so fine that it is hardly a  noticeable feature of the yard.  Do not work at cake as. soon as it  is taken from the oven. If it is slightly fastened to the pan allow to stand  five minutes then turn it on a sieve,  allowing the air to circulate around  it. If you use any of the patent pans,  however, allow the cake to remain in  the pans till quite cold. These pans  are, of course, used ungreased.  Try thin slices of pork on the breast  of fowl when it is1 roasting. It is not  necessary to baste fowl or poultry  when this is done.  Sliced beets, make a lovely pink coloring matter for any article of food  and a bit of saffron will produce a  pretty yellow that is! harmless. Spinach leaves make a good green, and the  yolks of eggs a gold tint. Vegetables  if put in cold water half an hour before using will be freshened up wonderfully.  HOW SHE  VALUES HIM.

Two or three  years, ago Mr. Perry ELi pulb an advertisement in the local papers stating  that he had  found, a largo sum  of money.    No particulars were given  but a day or two! ago he received    a  letter from one Snodgrass, of Chicago  which contained some particulars of  some money which  he had- los^ here  a bout eighteen years ago.   The writer states that he had been*paid $420  in Canadian   bank bills,   but1   bsforre  leaving  Kincardine he   exchanged  it  for gold, American gold pieces, twenty  in numiber, had been wrapped in some  brown paper and duly labelled.    > On  arriving at Walkertio.n hei hadt fallen  Jn with the late G.

The following is the full text of  Lord Roberts' farewell Army Order  to his troops:  Being about to give up the command  of the Army in South Africa into the  ly respected as it must henceforth be  greatly feared in South Africa.  ��������� Isfifc any wonder that I am intensely proiud of the army I have commanded, or that I regard you, my gallant  and devoted comrades, witi* affection  aft' well as with admiration, aud that  I feel deeply the parting fro or you?  Many of you, Colonials as well as  British, I hope to meet again, but  those I may never see more will live  in my memory, and will be held in  high regard to my life's end.  I have learned much during the war,  hands of Lord Kitchener, I feel that   and the experience I have gained will  I cannot part with my comrades.with  whom I have been associated for nearly a year, often under very trying circumstances, without giving expression  to my piofound appreciation of the  noble work which they have performed  for, their Queen and country, and for  in������ personally; and to my pride in  the results which they have achieved  by their pluck, endurance, discipline  and devotion to duty.  I greatly regret that the ties which  have bound us together are so soon  to be severed, for Ishould like tore-,  main with the army until it isi completely broken up, but 1 have come to  the conclusion that as Lord Kitchener- has' consented to take over the  command my presence is no longer  required in South Africa, and thvt  duty calls me in another direction.  WILL  ALWAYS  WORK  FOR    THE  ARMY.  I shall never forget the officers and  men of this force, be they of the Royal Navy, the Colonials', the Regulars,;  'the Militia,.the Yeomanry, or the Volunteers. Their interests will always  be very dear to me, and I shall continue to work for the army as; long as  I can work at all.  The service which the South African  force has performed Ls, I venture to  think, unique in the annals: of war,  inasmuch a|3 it ������ha.s been absolutely  almoisft incessant for a whole year ; in  some oases for. more than a year.  There has been no rest, no days off  to. recruit, no going into winter quarters, as: in other campaigns, which  have extended over a long period.  For months, together, in fierce heat,  in biting cold,, in pouring rain, you,  my comrades, have marched and  fought without a halt, and bivouacked  without shelter from tho elements.  You frequently have had to continue  marching with your clothes in rugs  -nnd your boots without, soles, time,  being of such' consequence that it  was; impossible for you to remain long  enough  in one place  to  refit.  .When not engaged in actual battle you have been continually shot at  frojm behind kopjes by an invisible  enemy, to whorn every inch of the  country was. familiar, and who, from  the peculiar nature of the country,  were able to inflict severe punishment  while perfectly safe themselves.  You have forced your way through  dense jungles, over precipitous mountains, throujgh and over which, with  infinite manual labor, you have had  to drag heavy guns and ox-waggons.  You have covered with almost incredible speed enormous distances, and  that often on very short supply of  food.       .  HIGHEST STANDARD OF PATRIOTISM.  Your have endured the suffering inevitable in war to sick and wounded  men far from the base without a  murmur, and even with cheerfulness.  You have, in fact, acted up to the  highest standard of patriotism, and  by your conspicuous kindness and humanity towards your enemies, your  forbearance and good behaviour in the  townsi occupied, you have caused the  army of  Great Britain to be as high-  greatly help me, in the- work that lies  before me, which is, I conceive, to  make the army of the United Kingdom  as perfect as. it is possible for an army  to be. This I shall strive to do with  all my might.  And now, farewell. May God bless  every member of the South African  Army, and that you may all be spared  to return to your homes, and find  thoise dear to you well and happy, is  the earnest hope of your commander.  Signed, ROBERTS.  APPRENTICE AND MASTER.  Their    Kc.lnilon-.    in    Iiancc   Ittirin;;   the  Thirteen Mi and I'onrn-eiLlh tommies.  Apprenticeship was an important  institution in France in the .hirtechth  and fourteenth centuries, and was  regulated with the utmost care, as  'will bo ,seen by the following account  of "An Idler in Old France;"  By the rules of the book the master  was held greatly responsible for his  apprentice; and under a wise and  kindly roof, the lad who was: learning  to be a master workman' and a ruler  im Ms little world might lead a happy  and   profitahle  life.  Often he did so, and when the day  came that he might claim his freedom,  ho chose to remain the paid servant,  friend and fellow worker of the master who had sheltered him from boyhood and-tamght him all his" craft,-'  rather than to seek a fortune less assured  elsewhere.  During the years bf his apprentice-  Ship the patron, or master, was to  feed, clothe and shelter him, in the  homely wording of the clockmaker's  rule, to cherish him "beneath hia  roof, at his hoard, .and by his hearth."  Nay, it was strictly enjoined upon  the master to treat his apprentice  "as, his own boii," and in some trades'  he was bidden to remember that his  responsibility did not end on the  threshold of the workshop, that the  "soul and morals" of the little stranger 'had claims on his solicitude.  In a day when the streets of Paris  were not very nice for anybody, and  .were more or less dangerous after  dark for anybody, tho master was instructed to bo careful on what errand he despatched the youngster; and  the pastry-cooks, whose apprentices  were often sent to cry cakes and  creams upon the public ways, were  continually warned to prevent the  lads from falling among evil company.  It seems certain that, so far as the  Middle Ages arc concerned, the rules,  precepts and admonitions were not  only framed with great good sense  and care, but were very rigidly enforced upon all masters who had  youths and lads in their employ.  High and low, in the society of that  day, tho rod and birch were flourished, with small discrimination and less  nicety; and if the tutors of little  princes had leave to Whip therm freely,  apprentices could not expect to come  off too lightly at a master's hand.  BATTLES OF HISTORY  Instances Where ������ri>ui Armies Slave Heen  Defeated by Inferior .\-unVi\s.  When Napoleon paid, "Providence is  always on the side of tho strongest  battalions," he proved the falsity of  his own precept on his last battlefield. It was not without interest  to see how this applied in some of  the world's great battles. At Marathon there were 200,000 Persians confronting 11,000 Greeks, The Persian  army was routed and the invasion of  Greece was ended.  Xarxca moved on Greece witM his  army of millions.

Two respectable workmen were attacked a tew nights) ago  by four prowlers, who, aifter picking  a quarrel, almost decapitated one of.  the workmen and stabbed tho other  i,u the abdomen. None of the murderers have yet  been traced.  A feature of these nocturnal attacks is that they are very often* accompanied by robbery, but are perpetrated by bloodthirsty criminals,  frequently boys in their teens. Four  boys, the oldest of whom is 17 years of  age. gagged ane outraged a young  girl at La Vile,tte> recently and then  fragged her to the carnal side with  the view, of drowning! her, 'when: pas-  sers-by rescued the girl.  . The, bands frequenting Belleville  and Menilmo.itant style themselves;  "Apaches." They have committed a  number of atrocious and cowardly attacks.  Another and similar band is called the "Amaindiers." The polLoe up  to the present seem powerless to cope  with  the situation.  DANGER Otf STREET OARS.  A gang of thieves) recently held up  a street car in a populous southern  district and robbed the passengers,  while an'important electric car line,  serving the sulburb otf Sit. Deals; and  St. Ouen, has refused, to rum its cars  later than 8.30 in the evening) on account of the danger, and it was announced on Thursday that the prefect of police had decided to: placo  a couple of policemen on each street  car running in the suburbs after 8.30  p.m., and that he had- also decided to  create a special corps of picked men  to be stationed in the dangerous  wards, such as the ward where the  severed body was recently discovered.  Moreover, in order to scon re murder clues, the police, for several  nights,'have raided thu disorderly  districts and have made large hauls  of criminals wanted on other charged.  A. raid on Wednesday evening lead to  347 arrests.  In fairness, it must ba said that  the present condition of crime' id  largely due.to the number-.^ of workmen, street hawkers, and others who  came to Paris attracted by the; Exposition, and who are now walking,  the streets out of work. It ia estimated by the statistician of the central labour bureau that. Ln, 25, trades  212,000 out of 510,000 are out of work.  The officials of the prefecture of  police calculate that 2,000 sufferers  from the close of the Exposition have  joined  the criminal  army.  and held  the Persians  iu check, taut  not until th'e heroic Spartan and his  followers .were killed.     Subsequently  at    SalamLs   Therrnistooles  met     the  Persians  in    a naval  battle.  Xerxes  watched the struggle from a distance  and  wept over the destruction of his  army. '      Under  Hezekiah  Jerusalem  was    menaced    by 185,000    Assyrians,  mho threatened to ruin the city.    Not  one  Assyrian  soldier saw Jerusalem.  At  Gaugaruela   Alexander  the Great,  with 47,000 men, fought 1,000,000 Persians under    Darius.       The Persians  were routed and Darius was assassinated   by one of  his satraps.  ,     THE SIEGE OF JERUSALEM/  was the gloomiest evet.t in the history  of mankind.     In A. D. 70, the'temple  of Herod was just completed. The Jews  were never so haughty and so patriotic.     They, were never so disorganized.      Innumerable    factions    divided  them.   But the Feast of the Passover  and the common danger enabled "Vespasian and Titus to shut them up in  the    city.      John   -and Simon,  their  partisan leaders, hated each other as  cordially as  they, hated the Romans.  When their followei-3 were not fighting one another during.the siege they  were opposing th'e. Romans.     Vespasian rind Titus cast  trenches about the  pity, hot one nstone was1 left upon another of    their beautiful  temple,  as  the    Saviour (predicted, and  1,100,000  Jews    perished  in    that awful  holocaust.  In the Russian campaign Napoleon  lost 475,000 men. His legions melted  aud died under the falling sno-wflakes.  The naval battle of Lepanto, between the (Christians, under Don John  of Austria', and the Turks, was one  of the fiercest contests of the Middle Ages. The Christians' numbered 80,000'. tind the Turks' 120,000 men.  The Turkish fleet was destroyed, its  commander killed and the Moslem  naval potvor was crushed on the Mediterranean.  At Waterloo Wellington had 70,000  men aud 15!) cannon. Napoleon confronted him with 72,000 men and 240  cannon. Napoleon claimed he had  Wellington in his grasp, But he was  facing destiny. A rainstorm of the  night before wrought havoc with the  movements of his artillery. Grouchy  failed to come up. According to  Victor Hugo the sunken road of Ohain  ruined the charge of Napoleon's cavalry. When the night, came Napoleon was a fugitive.  Notwithstanding the great enlargement of the city of Liverpool in  1895, when out-districts all round  the city were added to the municipality bringing the population up to  the estimated total of 700,000, a  movement is on foot for further extension.

Students of heredity assert that children born of very young fathers and  mothers never attain/ so vigorous a  growth of mind or body as those of  older men and women, while children  of old people are usually delicate, serious and old-fashioned, manifesting*  dislike for juvenile sports.  ,tfm ' i'*t.r't.*&ivvtn  ,*:ji->,iTiMinfttv������*ti-i������iPf*^#������rM1������-.j,  r-  THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, January 12, 1901.
