 'L^CioA^i  VOL. 4.���������NO.  ���������l\<\������\   '  SANDON, B'. C, SATURDAY, MAY 18, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  The Wonderful A Wonder.  Three Ledges Uncovered Containing  Carbonates, Ore and Galena.  There is no doubt but that this property was rightly named. Work under  Mr. Warner is showing it as a stubborn  fact. The opinion of many was that E.  J. Field in working it some three years  ago knew more about the merits of the  property than he disclosed to the public���������in shout, it was the impression of  many he knew it was a big property,  but kept the facts from the owners with  the hope of buying it himself.  However, the facts are that in Mr.  Warner's operations of a couple of weeks  he lias uncovered throe ledges, in each  of which there are large bodies of ore,  the uneoverings varying from 20 to 50  length  drifting on No. one lead in No: 5 tunnel,  lie has so far gone about 60 feet with  this drift and in about GO feet'further  lie hopes to intersect ledge No. three,  the recent find and at that depth .he is  confident of encountering a veiT large  body of high grade ore.'  ������������������������������������������������������"-"'   --���������'���������' ���������  He leaves for Spokane .today ��������� and on  his return will put on a largo force of  men and prosecute work with energy.  Mr. Warner will also commence work  on the Miller Creek adjoining the Wonderful in a short time and work the'two  promising properties together.  THE LOCAL GRAFT:  feet in  In one of the ledges' the ore uncovered the timberings that Field put in  and covered up again, until it might  suit his purpose.  The ledges are from three to eight fe������t  in width, and all carry ore throughout,  seams of clean ore. ami the remainder of  the ledge matter being concentrating  ore, both of very high value, one body  being a rich carbonate.  Since the foregoing was put in type,  our reporter visited -the property and  saw for himself the half had not been  told. There are now found on the pro-  ' perty llireo ueparate aiidi distinct ledges  ���������No. 1, 2, and 3. 0:ne and two have  been uncovered for some time, but from  the fact ore in continuous chutes had  " not been found and the walls were not  distinctly delined, they had not been  identified as ledges by previous miners.  This is evidenced by the fact they were  both cut in several places by cross  operations.-  Considerable bodies of ore have been  found in No. 1, but as it. is   very wet at  present it will remain for future operations to show (the value of its  contents.  In all there are   five   tunnels   on the  property, Nos:'2 and ;4 cut ledges, 1 and  2 which are parallel.' An upraise of 90  feet has been recently made- from 4 to 2  tunnel, and at the top of this  working  the first important discovery was made,  ore cached   by'some   former workman,  evidently   in   Mr;   Field's   time.   This  cached ledge has been opened for 45 fgjet  disclosing 5 feet of mixed ore, 18 inches  of clean, shipping galena; ������and  carbonates.   TJie carbonates, alone assay. 470  ozs. silver and i) per,.cent,  lead, giving  smelting value of.$2S2 per ton. This hid-  den!ore is at a depth of 130 feet from the  apex of the ledge. ,  This lead is evidently not a slide as it  was formerly considered..as it is intact  and in place; but had been sluiced  over and the mineral found considered  so much float.  Some parties during operations had  run a sort of circular or prospecting  tunnel, and at its one extremity Mr.  Warner on examination found a colored  talc. This led him to prosecute further  prospecting work, and in a short time  lie was rewarded by finding No. 3 ledge,  the premier ledge on the property.  This new find has been traced for  1500 feet to therightof way of the K.  and S. uncovering shipping ore the entire length. The ledge is four feet in  width as shown in six open cuts along  its course, each one disclosing clean ore  in place three "feet and upwards in  width. The assays of this show 70  ounces silver and 05 per cent. lead. The  immediate contemplated work is a tunnel on the ledge about 100 feet from the  first cut wirh'continuous drift on the  ore body. This working it is thought  will show the Wonderful what the name  implies���������a wonder indeed.

Ross, of McDonald & Ross, met with a slight accident, the hose cart passed over his legs.  The K.'.ifc S. did not arrive on Monday  on account of a mud slide, but ahand  car brought in.the mail and returned to  Kaslo heavily loaded with passengers  and baggage.   .  Arrangements have been completed  for.the brass band and --baseball team to  take part in Victoria day celebration at  Kaslo. The hose team club have decided.to stay at home.  _ The jury found a fraudulent, .application of Cordinglv for. insurance, in the  case of the Nelson Furniture Co., and as  a consequence he was non-suited in his  action against the company at the Nelson assizes this week.  On account of the frequent labor  strikes at Anaconda: and Great Falls,  the railway company and the Anaconda  Mining Co. are going toremove ajl their  machine shops from these places, which  will give ' these two towns great big  black eye3.  Blood has been shed in Albany, N.Y.,  over, a street car strike..- When the  union men struck, their places were  filled by non-union men. and bloodshed  and the suspension of all travel is the  result.

Burns & Co.,  has taken charge of the firm's business at  Grand Forks, and moved .there this  week.  Mr. Dewar, who has been employed  at the Payne mine a long time, has decided to go ranching on the Alberta  plains.  It is quite likely that Squire Lovatt  will be elected mayor by acclamation,  but who is to be alderman? Echo answers "Who?"  'The Methodists intend giving a concert about the last of the month, shortly  before the Rev. and Mrs. San ford take  their departure for-Rossland.  TheK. AS. train on Victoria Day,  May-24th, will leave Sandon' about 7:30  or 8 o'clock in. the morning, returning  leave Kaslo' between 6 and 8 o'clock in  ���������the evening. ���������  The Siivertonian is even now talking  of the great activity in mining in that  camp, and at the same time it reduces  the size of the paper. The two things  do not appear to harmonize well together. If the mines were busy the  paper ought to have patronage to sustain its proportions.  A few of the friends of the Rev. and  Mrs. .Sanfoul are interesting themselves  to get up an entertainment on the evening of the 28th, the last evening of the  rev. gentleman and his estimable lady  will be in the place before taking up  their residence in Rossland. The entertainment will consist of vocal and insru-  mental music* readings, &c. Fuller  particulars will appear in our next  issue. ���������. ���������   '  The Sandon baseball team played  their first game of the season with the  New Denver club on the latter's grounds  on . Saturday, and -were defeated by a'  score of .31 to 17. Up to the fifth, innings both teanns were evenly matched,  but in the seventh the visitors threw up  the sponge, and did not give the home  players a chance to go to bat. Towards  the" last the Denver boys played the  ball all over the field, which brought  up the score for them. Murphy and  Richards gave some good exhibitions of  ball pitching for Sandon.  It is reported that Chas. Sweeny is  endeavoring to form a combination with  a capital of $25,000,000 to control the  lead mines of the Coeur d' Alenes, whose  output is 60 per cent, of the lead of tho  United States. This move, it is said, is  to fight the Smelter Trust. There is no  doubt in the world but that if all the  lead producing properties were amalgamated, and the cheap lead of Mexico  either shut out by duties or corralled  also, it would bring the Smelter Trust  to its senses. It would never pay the  smelter men to leave their smelters idle,  and they would, therefore, have to come  to some-thine like proper terms with the  producers, "if they failed to do so, the  producers could, of course, put up  smelters of their own. In fact it is a  question if it would not even now pay  the mine owners in British Columbia as  well as the United States to own their  own smelters.  ffining Students in Sandon.  Some nineteen students of McGill  University, of Montreal, accompanied  by Dr. Porter, professor of mineralogy,  and Dr. Adams,' professor of geology,  visited the city on Wednesday evening  in the special car, and remained over  Thursday. Many of the students spent  most of Thursda3r at" the Star mine, it  being the only property that is working  extensively. The two professors visited  Che Payne, and were shown through all  the workings by manager Zwicky. Dr.  Porter also spent some time atthelvan-  hoe concentrator.  .- To the professors the sights were no  novelty, for apart from almost perfect  knowledge in theory, they had both  seen silver-lead workings before. To  the students the sights at tho mine were  a treat, and those of the town including  the slot machines, a matter of great  curiosity. On each night they repaired  to their car at all hours, being especially  interested in the night shifts of various  callings. The car went from here to  Nelson, and thence to Rossland, taking  in the coal mines at Fernie in return.  Railway from Vernon to Midway.  Greenwood, B. C, May 14th.���������James  Kerr and Robert Wood returned from  Victoria on Monday. They were successful in their mission to obtain a  charter for the Midway & Vernon railway, carrying a subsidy of $4,000 per  m\hs for 140 miles..  Mr. Kerr stated that surveys and  locations would be immediately pro-'  ceeded with, and that by.-fall actual  building will be commenced, The road  starts from Vernon, following south  down the Okanogan valley to Mission  creek, then making a loop to its head,  where the headwaters of the west fork  of the Kettle river met; thence following the meanderings of its junction with  the Kettle river and on the east bank  down the river to Midway.  The proposed road will open up a virgin agricultural and mining district. It  will also be the means of shortening the  run between here and- the coast about  24 hours. .    ,  Sandon Ore Shipments.

Even the housekeeper  ierself is at times hardly able toper-  form the imposed tasks ; but the laws  of the Medes and Persians were not  more fixed than her plans in the  household economy. To illustrate:  Our national birthday fell upon Monday, and meeting a friend at the annual picnic, after the. usual salutations',   we   inquired :  "Is your  wife ..here?" ,   ,   ,.  f  ,  ,  .   "Oh,  no  indeed,"     was   his    reply,  "Don't you know, this is Monday, and  she staid home: to .wash.   I toll her if  I die  on  Monday,  she  will  probably  lay me  on  the  shelf  until  she gets  the washing done."  >   We all laughed, but there was "more  truth than poetry," in what he said.  We recalled one Monday when she had  succumbed    after   a    large   washing, j  The doctor was called in haste. j  .'  HLs   first   words   were:   "It's   Monday ;  you   washed,   and   you   did   not  feel   well   when   you   began?"   ,  I   She  admitted  it.  : Then he said, rather crossly, "I believe you Avould wash if it took an  arm I One of these days you will  pot."  But he measured out the little pills  and departed.  In conversation with her after her  recovery she said: "I can't help it.  I accomplish nothing the whole  .week if I don't wash Monday."  ; Now is it jworth while for a delicate  :woman to almost imperil her life, for  such a whim I I admire a systematic housekeeper,, but I have a horror  of one who is so "wedded to her idols"  as to. trample on her own health and  that of her family for the sake of  doing work by rule. System is well,  but there must be times when the  rules become lax of necessity. This  same woman accounts that other one  no housekeeper, who does not do as  she doe������, while'I know many excellent ones who could not if they would  do so.  ������������������   Again,   is  it   worth   while   to   keep  the   kitchen   range   polished   like   silver when hands, arms and shoulders  pay the penalty afterward ? Might one  not be classed as a good housekeeper  a'f it  was  neatly wiped   with flannel  cloth or paper after  each  meal? One  [housekeeper never has beefsteak,fried  chicken ov griddle cakes,  though  the  (family are fond of them, just because  jthe   immaculate   stove   would   suffer.  j   Oue of the neatest housekeepers said  to me:  "How I hate   to  be called an  exquisite housekeeper.    You know ull  that implies ?  That   wonderfully   polished  kitchen nlova, and  the endless  Scrubbing of  every   board,   the  doing  everything certnin   days,   wash  Mon-  idays,  etc.   No. I don't do  it.  Life  is  too short for that sort of thing.   My  plan is  to be cleanly, orderly, try to  cook well,  and  let  the  polishing  go,  ppending the time thus saved in some  . port of ntudy or profitable reading."  1   I heartily agreed with her, knowing  Jaer house  to be  as  daintily neat   as  possible, and she is considered an ex-  Pie No, 2,���������Two cups chopped rhubarb, one and .a quarter cups sugar.

In  former times an old uoldier would  take up .a raw recruit, and "learn"  him how to soldier. In return, he, annexed the recruit's pay, allowing him  two half-pints of beer a day and a  "rimer,'���������a pennyworth of bread and  cheese���������for lunch and supper. Besides this, he watched over the youngster's welfare, safeguarding his kit  and protecting liim in other ways.  This old-time B3'stem has been done  away.with to a great extent, not, it  must be admitted to the. advantage  of the recruit whose inexperience is  now exposed to the unscrupulousnoss  of any sharper who crosses his path.

It woukl lie utterly impossible for  a soldier whro had ever had the smallest connectijon with any other country to be entrusted with these great  secrets; and there has never yet  been a whisper of any disloyalty.  Yet, if one of the holders, of the secrets liked to sell his knowledge  abroad, he would be given a princely  sum, home, and protection for life.  The pay of these holders of the nation's honor is about ������1 a week, and  even- their .families do not know of  their knowledge.     They are all  .BOUND TO UK'TEETOTALLERS.  There axe also the Army spy-books,  which are mostly official property,  and very carefully guarded; but there  are a couple of "non-coms" who could  get at theise if they chose. The  price that would be paid for them  abroad is. enormous, for they contain  all the secret information obtainable about the defences, of other Powers. .'. '  .   The   most .vitally  important of all,  such secrets, however, are the plans  of the great arsenals. All of these  have weak points. Though the explosion of a dynamite bomb would  not wreck Woolwich, or any other big  arsenal, there is a way in which it  could be done, for there is one spot  in every arsenal which it is impossible to guard. Armed with that  knowledge; a foreign agent, who did  not mind losing his life in- the hour  of success���������there are plenty such always in Britain���������could deprive Britain of her greatest explosive depots  ^t the time of her direst need. That  secret is known to four men, each  earning the wage of an average skilled  labourer.  HOTEL IN A SEWER.  Serve?   Over   GO   lircukiast*  ji   Day���������One  Thrives in a tiravi'^nrd.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, MAY 18, 1901.  THE OCTOPUS.  The American. Smelter Trust is en-  ���������   djeavoring to convince   the   silver-lead  producers of the Slocan that it ia high  charges of the C. P. R. for the transport  of ores to the boundary that prevents  them from paying what must be paid  for silver-lead ores to make the mines  profitable.   Some of our mine owners  actually believe their yarn, and are influenced  accordingly., There  is, however, one very strong proof this is not  the case.   It is a fact the   American  mine owners, where C. P. R. rates do  not prevail, are now complaining of the  treatment they are receiving from the  Octopus, and are likely to shut un their  properties as ours are being 'shut up if  the situation is not changed at once. In  fact the owners have already called a  meeting to consider the situation, and  see what they can do to help themselves  as the octopus has submitted a cast iron  agreement for all to sign :  The price of gold is fixed at if 19 per  -ounce, whereas the trust will receive  $20.07 per ounce for it. The rates are  based partly an the railway freight  charges, and as the railways are going  into the hands of the same financial  kings, the smelter trust will be in a position to make rebates on freight to itself,  while charging the full tariff to the  miner.  An ore containing $30 worth of mineral and paying $10 per ton freight, will  pay $17 per ton treatment charges, thus  leaving the miner $3 out of which to pay  the cost of operating his mine and profit  for himself. Such a mine must close  down at once. A $50 ore paying $11 per  ton freight, will pay $18.50 treatment  charges, leaving $20.50 per ton for the  miner. The treatment charges are an  increase on the prevailing rates.  Colorado Springs, (Col.) April 28th.���������  Messrs. Tutt and Penrose, managing  directors of the Philadelphia and Standard Eeduction !Works at Colorado  City, have gone to New York for the  avowed purpose of transferring their  - two reduction works to the American  Smelting and Eefinery Company. The  plants have a joint capacity of 1500 tons  a day, and have been operating steadily  bn Cripple Creek ores, which, owing to  low .rates, were diverted from the  smelters. '  Three months ago the trust reduced  prices in low grade Cripple Creek ores,  with the result that the reduction plants  have been compelled to sue for terms.  The, two mills at Colorado City have  been able to keep open owing to the  heavy contracts at former higher rates,  but now that these have expired they-  have not succeeded in getting further  at prices that would leave a profit.  The Dunsmuir government railway  bill just passed the House will meet  with general approval in the country.  It will not satisfy those who appear to  lay great stress on Hill's competition,  but that cannot be helped. In a word  the bill guarantees substantial assistance to any ^company that wants to  build roads where they are deeded, it  secures the government in interest on  the loan and holds the control of rates  in the hands of the government. As we  see things, the bill gives equal privileges to all railway companies, and special privileges to none.

The  conditions should also meet the wish of  those who clamor for government ownership, for ownership is never desired  for any other purpose' than the control  of rates, which the government holds  by the act. If the Hill people see money  in a railway at paying rates only, they  have a free hand to go .on and build the  Coast-Kootenay railway: if they want  more than this, their demands are in  excess of their representations and cannot be conceded. If on the other hand  the C. P. R. builds this line, the rates  are controlled by the government,which  secures all that can be got by competition.   There is one feature of the case  After all that has been said  and written about'mining in  this country, capitalists in Eastern Canada and the old  country have but'a very imperfect idea  of proper methods of investment.   The  very moment that  any large  property  shows up well' the  biting seems  to be  after  that   property,  not   stopping  to  think   that  even   a diamond   may be  bought too dear.   Even  the largest of  our mines must yet become mined out���������  extinct���������and it"is a question for capitalists to consider whether or not they will  be able to get their big price out of it in  clear profit and interest during the interval, before the end comes.    Mining  in any case is more or less of a gamble,  and a much safer plan for the capitalists  to take is to put their egs  in different  baskets.   There are plenty of mines in  this country in which mineral is found  in   the  ledges   that  can   be bought at  figures ranging from   $10,000 upwards.  Common sense would show it is much  safer for a capitalist to buy 100 of these  at $10,000 each than it is to put a million  into one alone.   In the one sense, in  buying a property at that stage, the purchaser secures all there is in it; and in  the next place he   has   .100 chances to  make his money on the one he has in  buying the large property.

Womanly  ills come to almost all. But for these  ills there is help and healing in Dr.  Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It regulates the periods, stops unhealthy drains,  cures inflammation, ulceration and female weakness. It makes weak women  strong, sick women well.  "Miss Ella Sapp, of Jamestown, Guilford Co.,  N. C., writes: " I had suffered three years or  more lit monthly periods. It seemed as though  I would die with pain in my back and stomach.  I could not stand without fainting; had given  up all hope of ever being cured, when one of  my friends insisted upon my trying Dr. Pierce's '  Favorite Prescription. .With but little faith I  tried it, and before I had taken half a bottle I  felt better���������had better appetite and slept better.  Now I am happy to say I am entirely cured, and  all done in two months' time, when all other  medicines had failed to do any good at all."

A new process which  has passed the  experimental stage,' and-1-is   now being  , used   successfully   at  .-Dolgelly, North  Wales, being apparently what is needed  to treat Slocan ores, is the Elmore process of concentration of minerals by oil.  Its great feature,"to -this section, is that  by this process minerals that flour too  finely to be saved by .any other known  process, such as sulphides, grey copper,  tellurides and kindred ores, can be con-  centraled and their values saved by this  new invention.   The cause which has  led to so   many of  our Slocan concentrating plants bavins'  to shut down���������  their inability to save the values in the  ore owing to the'mineral   flouring and  floating off with the water���������can  now be  remedied.   As this new discovery is of  such importance, to   this,  section a full  description   of   what, is   being accomplished   by it   at the Glasdir   Copper  Mines   in   North  Wales will be of interest: ' _   ���������  The rock from the mine, after passing  through the usual stone-breakers, is  crushed in a pair of Cornish Rolls, and  run thence to two Huntington Mills,  , wherein it is reduced; to pass through a  30-hole screen, and , issues ��������� therefrom  , with just sufficient water'to make it into  a freely flowing pulp/ From the Huntington Mills the "pulp passes directly  1 into the open'end oi a horizontal rotating drum, inside of which is fixed a  helix with cross blades or buckets,which  lift up the pulp to certain height and  drop it again,' at the same time profiling it forward ;lo the opposite end of the  drum. Withthe pulp is also admitted  a small quantity-of a thick, sticky oil  (the residue left in the stills iu the refining of paraiine oil). This oil is, of  'course, subject to the same agitation as  the pulp, and is consequently tumbled  about with it, and exercises, the remarkable property of sticking to and buoying up the particles of mineral that are  floating about or suspended in the pulp;  but it does'not stick to,or have any  effect "diatever upon the particles of  rock which are present in much greater  number. The oil and pulp automatically  discharge from the opposite end of the  drum into a pointed box or spitzkasten,  in which the tailings or rock at once  settle down and flow off with the water  at the bottom, whilst the- oil, by reason  of its buoyancy, floats to the top and  carries up with-it practically all the  values which-the ore contained. From  the pointed box the oil with its load of  mineral flows.off continuously to a specially constructed centrifugal machine,  where the oil-is extracted from the mineral, (which is left,in the machine)., the  oil being at once ready for re-use. The  concentrates'are left in the machine,  dry and almost free from oil.  The loss of oil has been found to be  it Glasdir l1^ gallons per ton of ore  treated, and may be taken as varying  -recording to ore and "other conditions  letween one and three gallons per ton.

Wallace   writes   thus   in  the London Dally Mail of Lord Kitchener and his' methods in the prosecution of  the Transvaal campaign :  ' ,   He, Lord Kitchener, knows  that'if  'the war  is to be brouglit  to a satisfactory conclusion, that end will only  he arrived at by plodding dogged perseverance, and by playing the   Boers1  at' their   own   game,    and   damaging  ��������� them.;in   the  most   effective  manner.  ��������� You cannot defeat the Boer by calling him names. He runs away and  glories hi it. You cannot get near  enough to call him a coward, 'nor  would that epithet sting' him to the  fighting point. It is a part of Brother Boer's tactics to run, and he  makes us run after him; it is a pari:  of the tiring but process, and the dominating maxim of the outlying commando is :  "We who  fight  and  run  away,  ��������� Live to fig-lit with Da la Rey."  Kitchener, knows this and where another general might have been covering sheets of foolscap with general  ideas for Surrounding and capturing  the flying burghers, Kitchener is  steadily and calmly removing to well  guarded centres the means of flight.  Firstly, the burghers must have food  ���������so we are fringing the food in. Then  they must have [horses, so the country  from the Urange to ihe Crocodile is  being denuded of horses.  ��������� The horses must', 'have forage, and  the forage of the country is, stored or  turn t.  Imagine if you can Kitchener's  task. Think of the enormous tract of  country over jivhich our operations are  extended, and you will realize to some  extent that in Pretoria is the only possible general for the work in hand���������  a work that demands better generalship than would he required of the  commander of an army corps in a  ���������European ���������war.  .WHAT   KITCHENER  HAS TO    DO.  Contrast the position of the General Commander-in-Chief engaged,  say, in a war against France.  He would have under his command  several compact army corps moving  in an area restricted by the boundaries of   neutral countries.  .Little strategy would be called for,  except in the events oft a general  European conflagration there is no  room i;i the future for purely/ strategical movements.  Certain recognized positions avi 1L be  held or taken and the rest will be  a. matter  of tactics.  The general's, orders to his lieutenants could be made known from one  and of the country to the other within a. few hours; he would be in touch  with the enemy, whose position and  strength would be as well known to  him as his own.  His work would consist in supervising the generals of division, on whose  hands would be left the disposition  of the forceji.  In South Africa, Kitchener is the  head, middle unci feet of the army,  He runs everything and knows everything. He has divisions, brigades,  and columns, moving in all directions  over an area not less than 300,000  square miles, and lie knows the whereabouts of every one.'.  He has Home columns that are 250  miles from any railway line, and as  far from . telegraphic ���������communications.  His grasp of detail is perfect. He,  knows how many Cape carts Hen-  niker's column has, and he is aware  that there are three sick Yeomen in  hospital at Buluwayo.  THOSE UNDER HIS COMMAND.  ; His attitude towards his subordinates is peculiar, for he values man  only as a more or less parfeci; machine,  and the more perfect he is, the better  he treats him. Kitchener has no use  for fops of any sort, but he is not so  prejudiced by appearance as to order  a maa home ������>a������ause he wears an eye  glass', as uome people would have you  believe. Indeed, sonic of his best officers have an affection for the monocle".  If his manner were .translated into  words it would run something like  this:���������  '.. "I am ^our superior officer ; you  have taken service under rne, and the  world will judge (you according to your  progress. I have great power entrusted to me by the King through his Parliament, and whoever you are or whatever position (/ou fill in the social  world lean make or mar you. I want  you to do your duty, and your duty is  to do as you're told. If you do as I  bid, you shall have all the credit for  the success in obtaining which I used  you as an .instrument. If my, plans  miscarry I will take the blame���������unless  they fail through your inefficiency.  1 don't care ftvho your tailo ris or how  many clubs you may be a member of  providing you can lead your men into  action with a maximum of dash to a  minimum of risk. Idou'f want heroes  who will lead their companies up to  the cannon's mouth and reduce the  stiengthof their regiments accordingly, but steady men who will take cover  and shoot away obstruction from the  shelter of a nice convenient boulder."  Nor does Kitchener rspare himself,  as the recent, chase of De Wet testifies.  If he is not at Pretoria sitting at  the end of a telegraph wire he is somewhere down the line seeing things for  himself, and De Wet had not been long  in the Colony before Kitchener was at  De Aar, talking to the commandant of  Hopetown about the horses that, had  not been removed from the Hopetown  district.  Oh such occasions "K. of K." has a  fine  flow  of  language.      _  ODD BUTTONS.  A  SI ore  tn   the  North of Loudon   Where  They ran l(c Kousht.  There is an old /main in the North  of London who follows the somewhat  strange calling of a dealer in odd  buttons. The front serves as a shop,  and a card in the window informs all  whom it may concern that any kind of  button-can be matched within at  moderate prices.  He buys up the buttons from marine  store dealers, dressmakers and others, and norts them ii:to little boxes  which are properly labelled. You can  obtain every kind of button from his  stock, whether of pearl, bone, brass,  jet, glass, cloth, sliell or horn.  It not. infrequently happens that an  odd button is required and cannot be  obtained of drapers; the particular  pattern is not made now, or the  tradesman has sold out all his stock,  This is where the dealer in odd buttons comes in, and those, who are a  button short can get what they want  in -his  parlour.  It is cheaper to do' this, in many  cases, than to buy a dozen of another pattern, and sew them on; and  matched. He does not reckon to  matched. He does not reckon charge,  charge more than four cents- for a  button, but grateful customers often  p'ayh more.  ,     A  MARVELOUS  INVENTION..  The spectacular effect of modern  warfare will be increased immensely  by  this  unique  innovation.  The illuminating section is based  upon such novel lines that it is a  marvel ranking with wireless telegraphy, the emission of the light being made in the shape of waves���������a  point which prevents, the possibility  of premature concussion. iExperLments  made at Toulon have resulted, entirely   satisfactorily.  The rockets at present in use by  the Government now are serviceable  at a distance of eight miles, and are  made merely for signalling purposes;  therefore the extraordinary value of  the new combination, will be understood.   .|  -������-  Complaints that eleclrirj cars arc  started so suddenly that serious accidents are inexcusably frequent are  loud and emphatic in manj' parts of  New York city.

French Government Having Them Manu  facturcd in Large Quantities���������Effects  of the Illuminations.  The French Government is having  manufactured in vast quantities a  new. illuminating shell. It. almost will  revolutionise modern warfare, and is  by far the most important invention  In projectiles' of the present decade,  .vrites  a Paris  correspondent.   .  The active preparations being made  for a war with England have been  stimulated by the belief that this new  shell will give France an enormous  advantage in the struggle which she  proposes to precipitate. Although the  secret of the construction of the shell  has been guarded in the most careful  manner possible under ��������� the circumstances, enough has leaked, out to give  a pretty accurate idea of what it is.  It will combine the properties of  illumination and destructivehess. This  will enable an army commanding a  supply of the shells to continue fighting all' night, if necessary, and will  greatly shorten the duration of future  battles.      i  In her proposed campaign against  England, France proposes to, use these  shells Ln such a way as will enable  her to make short work of her hereditary foe. The, shell is mado adaptable  for naval funs and will permit the  ITrench fleet to bombard British ports  with  positive  impunity.  SHAPED LIKE A  BOLT.     '  ���������The properties of the lyddite shell  and the rocket are combined in this  latest and most remarkable evolution.  The shell is; about 12 inches' in length  and shaped like a bolt. Its exterior is  formed of titeel ana so finely wrought  that at a given distance it will explode.- The interior isection will still  continue.on its fatal mission until it  has reached the point sought by the  gunner. The shell has be'en-made so  small Ln its minimum grade that it  can be used in all the small-calibre rapid-firing guns, and it is made upon  the rp.pcai.ing principle.which-renders  it extremely deadly.        '.-.'.'   i     ���������  The illuminating effects are produced by a combination 1' of certain  gases, which whem released create certain waves, lasting from five to fifr  teen minutes, regulated as desired, by  the gunnel-. The shell can be-projected to any point within '������������������..the range  of an ordinary mortar or rapid-firing  gun, giving probably ah accessibility  to a distance of at least ��������� ten miles  The point of bridging the channel by  means of projectiles, therefore has not  been quite reached by France, even  yet, and.",the devoutly wished consummation remains unfulfilled.- It  was hoped that the shell ��������� might be  so made that it would be possible for  the balloon corps to utilize it, but  its exploding depends ' upon long  range resistance to the air. Such  utilization is at present impossible.  The composition which constitutes the  explosive force far out-distances the  destructive power of the contents of  the lyddite shell.  -4������-  HOUSE CLEANING   DAYS.

Injured Bis Spine Whlle/Liftine, and tho  Doctors Told Him He Would Neves  Fully Keeover���������But He is Once B������or������  Free From tho Trouble.  From the Brockville Recorder.  In the .western section of Leeds  county, there is no man: better known  than Mr. Chas. H. Wilcox. He has resided in the vicinity of Mcintosh  Mills for years, and during much of  the time has conducted a very successful saw-milling business. All of  Mr. Wilcox's neighbors know that he  was a great sufferer for years from a  lame hack, and mast of them know  that this affhictiou has now happily  passed away. Mr. Wilcox says he  owes this happy release from pain to  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and those  who knpw him will not for an instant question the sincerity of his  statement. He gives the story of his  suffering and subsequent cure in the  following statement:���������" One day,  while working iu the mill, and engaged in iifting lumber 1 had the,  misfortune to severely wrench my  back. I was bo badly injured that I  had to be carried home, and for six  months I was practically unable to  move, and suffered great torture. The  doctor told me that I had injured my  spine and that I would never fully recover from its effects. At last 1 was  able to go about again, but was far  from being the man I had been before.  For years I suffered almosc continually from pains in the back.and was unable to lift any h,cavy .weight. At  times the pain was so bad that I was  unable to work at all,and I was often confined to the house for days at  a time. During this time I was treated by four different doctors but their  treatment did not seem to do me any  good. They toid me that, owing to  the injury to my spine my back  would.always be weak. Seeing that  the doctors were unable to help me,  and having read of the many cures  resulting from thei use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, I decided to give,  them a trial, and procured a supply.  Very soon I could see that they w-ero  relieving me a little and this encouraged me to cotttinae their use. In all  I took about ten boxes and when  they were finished my back was as  strong as ever. The pains that,had  racked my body for so many years  had entirely, disappeared, my back  felt as strong' as before the injury.  It is now. two years since I discontinued the use of the pills and in all  that time I have not had an achq or:  pain, so that 1 may safely say that  my cure is permanent. I would advise all similar sufferers to try Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, for knowing  what they have /.lone for me, I am  confident that they cannot be lesa '.  successful in other cases." ."'���������'���������'  These pills are sold by all dealers in >  medicine o<r may be had by mail at  50 cents a box or six boxes for  $2.50 by addressing the Dr. Williams' Medicine.

American securities are a favorite  form of investment in the Royal  Families of the Continent, and they  take their place with English investments. The German Emperor has  nearly yiree-quarters of a million in  American debenture, bonds. The amount of his English investments ia  not known, and eare is taken to hide  their nature. The Austrian Royal  Family have investments in Germany and in England. The Czar has  almost a million in American railways and about half a million in British securities. The King of Sweden  prefers brewery investments, and has  his savings widely invested. The investments of the Italian Royal Fain-  ilv  are   mainly   in  England.  ���������I  m  w  V  n  h  Jl  1 BIBS A PEISOIER,  A.

It seems hard that an honest man  should be kept a prisoner in his own  homo for over four years, and yet,  that is just what happened to Mr.  Mr. Wm. Doey, of Lot 19, Concession'  13, Township of Strong. His family  and friends all tried to secure his release, but in vain.    '  "For four years, I suffered excruciating torture, during which time 1  .was scarcely an hour free from pain.  "Tne trouble commenced in my  back, where it often remained stationary for months, and so intense  was the pain that I could not lie down  t.o take rest, but had to sit night* and  day in a chair. The pain would then  remove to other parts, of my body,  and when in my knees, I was unable  to walk, and confined constantly to  my room.  "I was treated for Rheumatism by  several doctors, and also tried many  medicines, without receiving any  benefit. Almost in despair, I feared  I would never again experience the  pleasure of being free from pain.  "A short .time ago, my attention  was directed to some remarkable  cures of Rheumatism by Dodd's Kidney Pills, recorded in the public  prints. I procured a box, and soon  found that they were doing me good.  I continued, and very soon I was a  new man, and entirely free from  pain.  "I have continued so for over six  months, being able to attend to my  daily duties on the farm, and feeling  able for any kind of work.       ,  .."'I verily believe this change, this  remarkable'cure,- has been effected by  the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills, and i  think it my duty to make this state-  -ment public, for the benefit of any-  afflicted as I was."  j    :      -.  t DROLLERIES.

McGuigan, manager and super  intendent of the American Boy, was iii.  Kaalo this week and gave to a Spokesman-Review correspondent a short account of the work being done at the  .   property.  Owing to an influx of surface water  work had to be discontinued in some  places in the mine, but is still in progress in levels JNos. 3, 4 and 6, which  are being continued. '  Several upraisings are being made to  connect the levels and provide stopping  ground. Great bodies of ore are being '���������  blocked out. The total work, in tunnels, j  crosscuts, upraises, etc., is about G,000  ,(feet, which entitles the property to the  claim of being well developed. Shipments of over 200 tons a month have  been steadily maintained to the Nelson  smelter but will fall off a triflle this  month on account of the water.   -  The ore averages from $75 to $$0 net'  and the values are maintained at even-  level, all the workings except a 200 foot  crosscut being in ore. The vein is on'  the property for 2000 feet. No G tunnel  is being driven north, and when it  strikes the Last Chance it will have a  depth of 1,100 feet. This tunnel is now  7(50 feet, which includes 2G0 feet of  crosscut.  As soon as'tlie snow-goes off Mr. Mc-  Gnigan will commence work on the  Black Hawk claim, one of (ho group on  the vein now being developed. Tie has  great faith in it. This claim is across a  valley from the American Boy, and consequently when work on both is under  way Mr. McGnigan will be driving north  and south on the same vein and gaining  depth rapidly in each direction.  Shipments will likely increase shortly. As yet stoping has not been undertaken on any large scale, the shipments  consisting mainly of ore taken out in  course of development. The property is  .being admirably worked from ' the bottom and none of the surface ore has  been taken out. The American Boy  has all the ear-marks of a great mining  property.
