Of tii is total amount about 25 per cent,  was mined in association  with   copper,  while the remaining 75  per   cent,   was  mainly derived form the silver-lead ores  of the Slocan district and   East .Koot.o-  iniy.   Included with the Slocan ores are  the "dry ores"  from   the   Slocan   City  division, which, while as yet forming a  small proportionate part of the. output  of the district, are still ever   increasing  in volume and importance.     Their importance consists in  supplying to  our  local lead smelters an ore   with   which  can be utilized the galena   ores   which  are so plentiful  in   British   Columbia,  ��������� thus rendering the smelters  the better  able to meet foreign competition.

BANFF NATIONAL PARK.  Will  Ho   Increased   to  Twenty Tini<-B   It"  Pi-i-stiiif,  >iv.ti.  Mr. Tl.'Douglas,    superintendent of  the Banff National   Park,  has      just  returned  from  New   York,' where   he  has      spent some  lime studying  the  habits and mode of keeping wild animals,  owing to   the  fact   that     it   is  intended by the Government to stock  the Band' Park with  all  the animals  native  to  the   Do in in ion  as  soon  as  it  can  be -done.   This  is   in  connection with the plan of increasing the  size of the park   to   about  20   times  its present 'dimensions by  taking in  manv of the surrounding mountains,  valleys      and  lakes.     The park  will  then  be  larger  tiiah the' Yellowstone  Park,  and will include many      lakes  and waterfalls  of surpassing" beauty:  chief      among  these     will     be     the  Takakka Fall,     a    glacial       stream  of one-fourth the   volume of   Niagara  that had a sheer drop of 2,300 foot.  The  height  of   Niagara  is   lti<L   feet.  A great part of tho water disappears  beneath the rocks and finally     flows  into the Frascr.      Immense boulders  are  constantly   ground   out  by     the  glacier and are hurled over the fall,  causing   the entire  district  to        resound   with   the  crash  of  their      impact.   Tho beautiful   Yoho Pai']c   will  also be taken into the Banff.     Those  outlying portions will Lie retained as  an immense game preserve,  with only   a few   bridle  paths through      it.  At present  there are in  the       park  31   head   of  buffalo,   0- elk,   5  moose  and 17 Angora goafs.      Travel      to  the park  has  doubled in the       last  four years, and  last year over 9,000  tourists,  largely  American,      visited  it.      These  spent  in   the   park   over  ������1,000,000.     A stone weather observatory  is now  being constructed  on  Sulphur     Mountain,   which   is   8,500  feet  high.      Extensive  improvements  in the hotel accommodation of      the  park have become necessary and are  now  being made.  .    Moo  Who Aro   Misquoted.  To most men criticism brings  smarting and hurt. ��������� They may give  no sign save the hard, forced smile  which dies so soon, but to good men  the biting words of even bad and  spiteful men bring pain. But what  hurts most of all is to be misunderstood and misrepresented unci maligned by those, who are sincere,  who love the truth", und whose commendation one would fain deserve.  If there is a grief bitterer than  that if is in being applauded by the  selfish, loose-living crowd whose interest is not truth's, nor purity's,  nor love's: That is the last sorrow of a good man's life.  As these lines are being written,  we look up to a portrait on the wall  at the face' of as true and bra.ve a  man as ever stood in a Canadian  pulpit, .the late I). J. Macdounell,  who paid to the full for his honesty  and courage. , And this was the  measure of his keenest sorrow; that  he grieved the hearts of men he  trusted and fain would have followed, and offended some who fain  would'hiive followed him; and more,  that his words, spoken out of the  heat and passion of his own intense conviction,- warped from their  purpose .and meaning, seemed to  give comfort to men whose loose  views of life and of truth" he utterly  loathed.���������From'The Westminster.  Twentieth  Century Medicine.  The twentieth century has almost a  free field in medicine. Although much  has been accomplished in the treatment  of diseases, the science Is still largely  experimental, and there is room for a  host of discoveries. Perhaps by the  time this century is ended there will be  a lymph or an antitoxin or some sort  of treatment for every ill the flesh is  heir to, so that a few vaccinations and  other treatments will guarantee immunity for. a long period. Then centenarians will be as common as blackberries ond a man will be'young at eighty.  LAND OF EVANGELINE.,  Happy is the land thai has no history is a saying that can scarcely be  said to apply to any country for an  indefinite length of time. Tlie land of  Evangeline has certainly, all the appearance aX this day of a large  share of prosperity, material and  otherwise. There is, perhaps, no  more fertile tract of country on the  continent than the Annapolis Valley. The diked farms, where the  owners have the opportunity of shutting out "or admitting at will in periods of drouth the tides of tho sea.  never lack for moisture. The old-  fashioned manner of building the  dikes, which were used by the primitive inhabitants of this productive  valley, are still, in use by the farmers of the Annapolis country. They  have not been able to invent anything superior for repelling the invasion of the sea. Tho mud and turf  walls are-still as serviceable for the  purpose as they were 250 years ago.  In England there was experiment at  innninso expense to keep out the  tides by building a wall of wooden  spiles. The experiment was unsuccessful: It was found that the water  got under the timbers and raised,  them, and the old-fashioned system,  as seen round the Basin of Mines,  and other points in the Annapolis  Valley, was resorted to. A recent  party from Ontario, and IT. IT. S.  writes lhat they visited the Evangeline well, and the row of guarded  willows, of which Charles G. D. Roberts writes, "whose branches perchance tell over to the young loaves  of each recurring spring what they  saw of Evangeline and her sorrow."  Near this spot were unearthed not  very long ago some blacksmith's  tools which some were ready enough  to connect with the site of the old  blacksmith's shop; and also there  were discovered the foundations of a  good-sized building which, it is conjectured, may have been the site of  the Mass house where the Acadians  v.-ere kept in confinement before  lhey were placed on the ships to be  taken   out  of  their  country. The  tourist, through the land of Evangeline is bombarded with clouds of  Eviin.reliue literature, good, bad and  indifferent. Bushels of mawkish rubbish have been written on the great  incident in the history of Grand Pre,  much of if is very bad verse, and a  remarkable feature about tho local  iit?raluro is the small amount of  addition Paid by the writers to the  lomantic and artistic story of Longfellow, while the amateurish efforts  of some of the poorer verse-makers  nre liberally quoted. On the other  hand, ih.iso who have been fascinated by the chapters which Parkman  devotes in simple but strong English  to the tale of this unpatriotic and  ur.h ippy'people, are struck with the  similarity between the work of this  great .historian and some of the literature of the locality. If there has  ever . ��������� been any dotibt as to where  Parkman obtained his data, perusal  'of-this local literature should at  once remove it. By far the most  ably written description of the. land  of Evangeline which the party came  across in their travels was the exceedingly bright and clever little  work of Mr. Roberts. By a drive of  fourteen miles from Kentville or  Wolfvillc, the tourist reaches Look-  off Mountain, whore there is obtained a view of rare grandeur over the  Minas Basin, the Annapolis and Gas-  pereau Valley, the bold outlines of  Blomidon Proniotory, the Villages of  Canning, Grand Prej and other small  settlements    in the distance. The  wholo country is beautifully and  highly cultivated, and seen from the  Look-off tower, the distant, fields,  carpeted with golden grain, or dotted with apple orchards, comfortable  farm dwellings and barns, clumps of  trees, the whole threaded by a silvery river, and pierced with numerous bays glistening in the sunlight,  make a delightful panorama.  ������    a  w������-.*^yoa;a^ mi*t������* 7iT,'^'izrcnT; i;������"iim!WTJ!?  -.

A reliable remedy for these  diseases should be kept a(. hand. Tlie  risk is too great for anyone to take.

Tk Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1903.  With this issue the Mining Bkvikw  enters upon its seventh year. During  the career of the paper it has been  through the many vicisaitudes subjuct  in a. mining camp where extremists  prevail. The Review has always advocates reforms which would benefit the  country as a whole, not one section or  class in particular. Our leading citizens have liberally supported it in a  trying time, in the belief the course  adopted was in the best interests of the  province at large. It has been an up  hill light in the face of strenuous opposition, but the Review is coming out on  top. Since the present proprietors assumed control a good deal of the old  animosity has died out. The advertising patronage and subscription list have  been substantially increased without  solicitation on our part. With the improvement of the silver-lead industry  tha Review will improve also, and we  hope before another anniversary comes  around to publish a paper in keeping  with the reputation of the worid famous  Silvery Slocan.  ��������� The Liberals in Nelson seem to have  difficulty in securing a candidate. A  meeting was called last week and Dr.  Hall named, but bo declined lo accept.  J. Fred Hume was then approached  with like result. F. J. Deana is eager  for the nomination, and would accept  either Liberal, Labor, Socialistic or any  old stick, but the parties imagine that  while he may run a newspaper all right  he would make a mighty poor run as a  candidate.  The trade returns for the 11 months  of the fiscal year ending May 31, shows  an increase in the aggregate trade of lhe  Dominion of .tSS.371,462. The total  trade for' that time has now reached  ���������?392,080,niS, compared with -?353,989,-  450 for the sam^. period last year. In  imports there was an increase of about J  $22,000,000. and in exports of about  .$16,000,000. The increase of duty was  nearly M.OOO.OOO.  The Conservatives are organizing all  over the province and preparing for the  coming  campaign'.      A  convention   of  delegates from the whole  province  will  assemble   shortly  in Vancouver  and a  plan of battle arranged.   Their policy  appears in this isssueand is one that appeals to all.   Each  plank  in  the platform applying to  the different sections  of the  province.   The   silver-lead 'dis-l  tricts  aro  specially    mentioned.   The  Conservatives   recognize   the   brilliant i  future of the silver-lead  industry, and  are in hearty accord with the producers '  in their demand for adequate tariff protection.     Thu  Conservative  motto    is  Protection, Progresflion and  Properity,  and with   the   first   secured  the other J  two will follow.  One hundred and twenty-one licenses  to cut timber on government land were  issued during the month of May, sixty-  six of them being renewals.' Th'ese  licenses represent a revenue to.the government of: ir-12,100. During the past  week eleven licenses were applied for.  In spite of the fact that all timber limits  must bo surveyed before they are staked  theieisno diminution, but an actual  increase in the'demand for licenses.

That's a small  outlay for so large a return of  health and comfort.  Babies that are given  Scott's Emulsion quickly respond to its helpful action.  It seems to contain just the  elements of nourishment a  baby needs most.  Ordinary food frequently  lacks this nourishment;Scott's  Emulsion always supplies it.

Kaslo Liberals have passed a hearty  vote of thanks to Joe Martin for droping the leadership of the party. Tlie  entire province," irrespective of parly,  would vote him another if he would  diopoutof politics altoglber and go  away back and sit down.  Civilization is on the wane in Eucrp .  Close upon the blood curdling massacre  of the JewBatKisbeneO'in Russia comes  the brutal murder of the king and 'queen  of   Servia, together wilh   some of   the  hitter's relatives and neai ly  the entire  ministry, by   tho   Servian   army.   The  murder was of the  most revolting kind  and is applauded  by the   people.   The  Servian rulers may have been  far from  what reigning sovereigns should be, but  they did not deserye tho ignoble death  they met.   The army have proclaimed  Prince  Karageorgevitch king, and   his  career promises to be about aB short as  his name is long.   Servia   has rid her-j'  self of one dynasty of yitches and  accepted another.  Sometimes   we   are. greeted   in   the  morning by flags at half-mast for some  prominent   official   who   yesterday  was apparently in perfect  health.  When we. inquire the ailment by  which he was stricken it is not uncommon to be told "acute indigestion "or "stomach trouble."  It is time people learned that indigestion   or    any   form   of  "stomach trouble" is not a  ything to trifle with.   The  result may not be fatal,  but there can be no  condition of diseased  stomach   which   doe9  not carry with it physical loss and weakness.  Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical   Discovery  cures indigestion and  other forms of disease  affecting   the    stomach  and its allied organs of  digestion and nutrition.  It enables the perfect digestion   and  assimilation   of  food.  "Thanks to Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery," writes Mr,  Charles H, German, of Lehightou,  Va. "It is the only medicine that  has done me any good. I tried everything I could think of to cure indigestion, and found I was only throwinjr  away money. Then I heard of Doctor  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and tried a  bottle of it, and to my joy found it was doinjj  me good.' 1 used six bottles of it, and am now  cured.   It is the best 'medicine on earlM."  This grand remedy does its work in  a thorough manner; it gives the  health that is all health; the strength  that is solid, substantial and lasting;  not flabby fat, not false stimulus, but  genuine, complete, renewed vitality and  life force.  Accept no substitute for "Golden Medical Discovery." There is nothing "just  as good" for diseases of the stomach,  blood and lungs.  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure constipation and its consequences.  The Dominion govern.ment has not  yet taken any action to redress the silver-lead industry and the mine owners  have taken no steps to re-open the  mines. The season is already far advanced, and unless something is soon  done the out put of the Slocan for lOOo  will be the lowest in its histoiy.  There are twenty-six newspapers in  the Kootenay and Boundary districts,  politically classed as follows: Conservative, seven; Liberal, five; Labor,  three; on the fence, eleven.

The P.M.O. called him the incarnation of Mark Tap ley.     We called him  .Johnny.      lie was an Irish-Canadian  that  had  drifted   over  to  South ,Africa    on a hired   transport      loaded  fore  and   aft  with   horses   and    hay.  A military  doctor  who knew that a  man's     brain     was   something "more  than so many drachms of grey matter engaged him for the' front.     And  the  doctor   was   wi.so.  several   men   who   have  ed to   their  regiments in   the British  army as lit for duty who would have  gone down  to posterity as part     of  the statistics of a mortality   report,  if it hadn't been for the army     surgeon's horse sense."     The manner in  which Johnny Ryan subdueclly whistled     the  -Tint    My   Father'Wore,"  as he  moved   around  the        hospital  cots when Blocmfontein was      fuver-  stricjvc-n,  and   they   were  burying soldiers    by the    trench full, or quietly  lilted  "Rosy O'Crady" in tho   night,  watch   of a  crowded   tent,   did ���������     as  much  to stop lhe death rate as    the  scientific .  treatment ��������� of  the   distinguished specialist whom he astounded one day  by calling "Doc."  Th.-re  was     nothing    ghoul-like  about   the  way he seemed  to    draw    happiness  from   the pain,  sorrow,  and     misery  that he was brought in contact with.  When his master,  "the boss" Johnny  culled him, was once  ordered  to  proceed,  under escort,   to half a battalion which was doiner outpost,    duty  np the Vaal River way. where enteric Was getting in   its  deadly     work,  and  at    the first, ha.lt the subaltern  ,found   they  had  forgotten  Hour,  and  that  it meant a couple of weeks  on  hard-tack,   Johnny  consoled  him    by  remarking,   they niiuht have forgotten   the  officers'.-whiskey.  When   the  young  officer wish a flesh  wound   in his   left, arm was  working  himself; into  a fever,  and .wanted   to  write a letter to his' mollnr and his  sister and  several  other delicate   female relatives  that he was going  to  die,  and  that he left h's name to  a  grateful   country,   under a Conservative Admini.'-.tration,   Johnny        told  him of the joys of strolling       along  Adderlcy street, Cape Town, with his  arm  in a sling and being sympathized with by a. considerable    part     of  ''fashionable London   who  were      following   tho  enemy,   and   the     young  man is  now engaged  tp a      wealthy  widow of a sentimental turn,   who foil  in  love with  the flesh wound.       And  the     young      officer     has  forgotten  Johnny.  Johnny will only get a bronze or  copper sort of medal, that the Government will give to Kaffir guides,  grooms, war correspondents, and  mule-drivers,- but he did ���������more to  remedy the disasters brought about  by the drawing-room, club room military education of the officers of the  British army than any one .man below  the   rank of general.  And it was all owing to his Tuple-1  fan quality of looking on the bright  side     of  everything.      For instance,  after     the     battle of  Modeler  River  Lord Methuen.  who  had  cabled  that  his  barren victory was the   greatest  of  modern  times  in  the     history of  British  arms,   then   counted   up     his  serious  loss   in   killed   and   wounded,  and looked  around for  the    enemy's  dead.   The noble  lord,  the      general  of leeves and Aldcrshot, couldn't find  them. Johnny'.Ryan   and  several  hundred  others were put on   fatigue  duty,   fishing for  dead  Boers,       who  'were believed  to be damming up the  Modeler Kiver.     "They'found a     few  ���������a couple of dozen, I' think,     They  were laid  out decentlv  and in order  on the river bank, and  in ,the everi-i  ing    -Johnny.-. -  was'hovering around  blithely whistling  "The Night      Before Larry Was Stretched," for    he  had been up to his waist   in water  all   day,  had  caught a severe   cold,  and   was as  hoarse as  a  crow,   and  he whistled.     Methuen and his staff  trotted up - to him on one of the  countless inspections, rounds, and  things that his soul delighted in and  ' the noble Lord asked Lohnny ��������� several questions, and Johnny answered in a husky voice, that was appropriately like unto the croak of  a raven.  They were about wheeling their  horses for the return to headquarters  and Johnny had- answered the last  question in a whisper that was barely'audible, when Methuen drawled  out in that Guard's drawl that  makes  y.ou almost  pro-Boer:  "Ah',  my good  fellow,  you have a  very bad cold?"  "Yes, General, I have a horrible  bad one. But," and Johnny looked [  quite cheerful as he pointed to the j  row of dead a few yards away, "any j  one of them fellows over there 'ud '  be mighty glad  to have it."  Johnny Ryan always looked on  the cheerful side of things.���������Charles  Lewis Shaw,  in Toronto Star.  Your CIorKes  **  Sheep  In   Varied  Clothing-.  One of the results of the Investigation of a special committee of the* So-  . ciety of Arts into the question of bookbinding goes to show that sheepskin  Is  often   used   by  bookbinders  under  very   different    names.    They   found  books bound nominally hi Levant morocco,   hard   grain   morocco,   straight  grain morocco, pigskin, calfskin, crocodile and alligator leathers, nil of which  on close microscopic examination were  found  to   be   the   ordinary   common  sheepskin on which had been stamped  the special grains and markings of the  skins they were got up to imitate. The  committee,    however.,   were   satisfied .  that  in   many   cases   both   the  bookbinders and the librarians had bought  these  leathers   under   the   impression  that they were buving the genuine article.

A.suggestive fact disclosed  literature of the. day. is the  of English writers in the  of Canada and Australia. . This is  strongly brought out in an important book by Benjamin JCidd on "The  Principles of Western Civilization."  It lays stress upon the paramount  importance of the western commonwealths in determining the trend of  future.progress.  Another Englishman, who is equally  impressed   with   the energy of the  English-speaking  race  outside    England,     is     Archibald R.   Colquhoun,  whose  "Mastery of the Pacific"  will  be published  by Heinemann in London  soon.      The proof sheets  reveal  a  deliberate attempt to prove    that  the Pacific has become as important  as'the-Mediterranean was iii ancient  times,   or  as   the   Atlantic     became  after the voyages  of Columbus   and  the wars    between     England      and  France for the control  of the.

I  Lord  UulToriu's  rnissicn  to   Canada |  was disiinguished by   the inculcation1  of respect, and admiration for Canada  by  Canadians.   His  Excellency  fitted  the public mind with anjdea of this  country both as to its present greatness and to its splendid future    that  intil  his arrival  had not been cnter-  U.ind.      Along  with   this      valuable  leadership Canada received  from  him  a new view of the Imperial relations.  He    showed  that servility and  indc-  pc-nd nee  wore  not  our  part  in     the  union,   but en the contraiy, we were  d s ii:c:l  to be an  independent   associate   nation,   claiming   and   enjoying  equal  i.ight.s with other British communities.    Lord   DufTerin   spent      six  mid 11 half .years with   us and  traversed Canada from cue)  to end,      delighting   the   people,  with   his  genius  and inspiring them  by  his    oratory.  His -furowall' speech   was delivered at  the Industrial Exhibition: grounds in  Torr.nto, on September 24, ".1,878. The  parting  words   wero  a  consideration  of th j  duty of  Canadians to      their  heritage.   "Love your  country,"     he  said;     ''believe    in     her,  honor her,  work for her,  live for her,      die    for  her."
