He leaves a  wife, and two brothers to mourn his  sudden demise.  Work was commenced Monday on  the repair and clearing of the road to  Silverton. As far as the work litis progressed the road has been put- in excellent condition for travel. The cost  of keeping' this highway in good condition is very light, and it is one of the  most used roads in the division.  Within sight of New Denver, upon  the hottest day in summer, bear, yoat  and cariboo can be shot and kept: fresh  by placing- them upon the ice. of the  glacier that looks down upon the  Lucerne from its high perch, across  the limpid-waters of Slocan lake. New  York has no attraction like unto this.  Work on tlie Springer creek and  Lemon creek wag-on roads is now well  under whv. AY. S Drewory. of New  Denv.er, is engineering- the work for  the government. On Lemon creek 50  men are employed, and on Springer  creek the force was this week increased  to about this number. The work will  be completed in about six weeks.  .The great   xinc-le.-ul   fields  of   south-1  wo>!   Mi-M.iir.-i   and   south-east   Kansas!  have been brought into increased   pro-1  min'ence,   during-   the   past  year.    The:  ^1 j generally prosperous  comlilion   of the!  v.o   country   'has   exerted   a   favorable, ���ui-  .MA I fliicuce on all mining centers,. and   the  zinc fields received  their   full   share, of  increased activity.    Outside capital has  been freely   invested,   and  zinc   mines  SLOCAN     MINKHAI,     l'!,!l,\T,  Nickel and asbestos are to be found  in the Slocan.  W. Koch has the contract for hauling'  ore from the Arlington.  The stockholders in the Howard  Fraction meet at Slocan to-day.  C D. Rand, of Spokane, will look at  his Ten Mile properties this weak.  Warner Miller and his associates  viewed their Slocan properties last  week.  have been   favorites  with   the ��� Eastern  investor.  The operating- of mines on leased  hind is an almost' universal practice in  tlie zinc district. Much lias been said  for and against this lea.-.e system: but  the fact that the annual output of the  mines has reached a value approximating" $l0,i>i.in.0O> is a. Strang- argument in  favor of the system. It may be regarded as a natural outgrowth of the rather  unique mining- conditions, whore scores  of square miles of territory are more or  less underlain with deposits oi mineral.  Regarding- this lease system, it may  be briefly stated that the land-owner  gives a first lease entitling- the holder  to mineral rights on fairly large, tracts  of land (usually ten to several hundred  acres') The royalty to he paid to the  land-owner varies with the supposed  ���desirability of the land, and is. often 8  to loner cent of the gross output ol'j  mineral  The holder of the first lease, which is  usually drawn for a period of 10 years,  prospects his property either with drill  holes or shafts, or both; and, if mineral  is found, lie then sub-leases portions of  the. property to the mine operators.  The royalties paid on second leases are  lo to -Jo per cent of Ihe, gross output of  mineral. These second leases consist  of a certain number of lots, each -2(10  feet square.  In sonic, cases the fee holder operates  his own mines, and often the holder of  a first lease prefers to work a rich deposit rather than lie content with royal-  lies.  The great number of miners who are  working* their own properties under the  lease system  are  so   many   safeguards  J ag-ainstthe injurious labor strikes which  and j     The cost of shaft sinking- is, of course,,  | very variable.    Shafts are   often   sunk  ion   contract,  the   price   paid    varying  with the locality and with   the   kind   of  ground.    A  0x7 ft.  shaft  HO   feet  deep  was sunk on contract, in the   Belleville  district, lor 82 per foot of depth.    This  shaft was in soft, open ground      A   ox7  ft. shaft, 7o feet deep, two miles west,  of  ��� lopliii, cost f>20.25 per foot of depth,this  ligure   including-   a   small   boiler   and  pump.    A- 1.25 ft. shaft, one mile west of  Joplin,  cost   ifM.oO  per  foot  of  depth.  This shaft was sunk through 90  feet of  ! hard flint and limestone, and ?>h feet  of  i open ground.  I     Upon   striking-   pay  dirt, if there is a  i la rye enough percentage of free ore, the  I miner erects a small  grizzly   to   screen  out the coarse rock and puts in   two  orj  three hand  jigsi-'to  clean  the  ore  and!  Outlook Good  for a Prolonged-Session with Little  Business  Transacted.  S8SSS38S3S SS SS SgSaSS&gBSSgSSSS  hand  jigs to  clean  the  ore  ���render it salable.    This is a wise method  of procedure, for very often the ore body  is not la rye enouyh to justify   the  cost I  of building ;t steam concentrating plant.  After sufficient development work has  been done with the hand jig" plant to  open up the ore deposit, if the faces of  ore are large enough and sufficiently  promising, a. steam mill is constructed,  the usual cost being ��6,000 to .$8,000 for  an ordinary 100-ton mill. Such a mill  will actually treat about 50 to St) tons of  'nine dirt per 10 .hours, depending' on  the quality, of the dirt. A hard flint  ore is brittle, and easily passes through  the crusher; while clayey oie tends to  choke up the machinery and lessens tlie  capacity of the mill.  The past year scores of new concentrating- mills have been erected, and  many of these have introduced modifications of this system of ore treatment.  These modifications consist mainly in  the introduction of screens or grizzlies  at various stayes of the crushing- process, thus avoiding- excessive production  of slimes and decreasing the wear on  the machinery.  The unprecedental high prices received for zinc ore during" the year IS99  w^'i-c a great stimulant to prospecting-  ami mining investment.

A brief description of the zinc ore  bodies may be of interest to those, unfamiliar with the. reyion. The .Toplin  zinc ore is sphalerite or blende, with  subordinate galena, and occurs in  pockets, caves, sheets and irregular  bodies   in    lower   carboniferous    linie-  ire  stone.

This has been a great season for  picking- berries in the Slocan. With  the running of the red fish this mouth  joy should reign supreme amongst the.  inhabitants.

They receive SL40 a day, and few of  them have had a college education,  although many speak two languages.  Berry-pickers are gathering a prolific harvest, from the hills about the  Three Forks concentrator. It is noticeable that when the berry harvest is  large, the bear stories diminish accordingly.  James E. Wood has charge of the  office at the Alamo concentrator. Mr.  Wood was for years connected with the  store of H. Giegerieh, of Sandon, where  his quiet, affable nature won for him a  host of friends.  In New Denver the boys are again  singing 'T'm Fat," "That's the Baby,"  "Good," "Hit Me," "Put In With You,"  and other well-known melodies only  heard when 21 is King, and IR is often  a fatal number.

The, high price of zinc ore was undoubtedly due to considerable extent to  the Missouri & Kansas Zinc Miners'  Association, which was formed in December, 1898. This association comprises a majority of the mine operators  in the district,; and by bringing" about!  the exportation of large, quantities of  spelter when the domestic market was  overstocked, and by other methods, the  association has exerted an influence'  in  nionly calieti miindic. and  is   ohjecfion-  The Wakefield   shipped  80  tons  last  week, and the Vancouver 20.

The past  week lias been barren   of  any .striking  features, being given  over almost  entirely to  the  consideration   of  bills in  committee in the House.    The estimates  are. promised  by   Wednesday  of  next  week,   the,   final    government    caucus  being   held   on   Monday.     The   usur.l  (lifJiculty has been experienced in meeting  the claims  of  all.  and  additional  | complication has been given the matter  this   year   through   the   fact that  the  support of the government is of such a  hybrid and uncertain  kind  that  great-  care has to be exercised not to alienate  any section of it.  The Opposition   drew   first blood  of  ,| the session yesterday at the sitting" of  the^ Railway committee.    The measure  under consideration was the incorporation of the Vancouver and Westminster  railway, and  the  Opposition members  introduced a motion   excluding   from  employment in the construction  of the  road all those who were unable to  read  the provisions of  the Act.    Of  course  this   proposal   was  met  by  the  usual  storm of indignation by  the  promoters  of tlie measure, while  the  government  men opposed it  as  being  open  to  disallowance, as v,as the case  with   legislation of a somewhat similar character  introduced   at   former   sessions.    This  provoked the first  battle roval  of the  session,    both    sides    becoming    very  heated during the  discussion, and  the  Opposition finally carrying-  their  view  by one. vote.    Subsequently  when   the  House resumed the Minister of Finance  announced that he had discovered   that  the  Railway  committee  was minus a  member and suggested that Mr. Clifford  be added to it.    The Opposition entered  a  viyorous   protest,   but  it was  of  no  avail, and after somewhat  bitter  compliments had been exchanged, the name  of Mr. Clifford, was   added  to  the  committee.  On the suggestion   of  Mr. Curtis,   an  amendment will, in all  probability,   be  made to the draft liquor license bill,  to  meet conditions 'obtaining  all  through  i the milling country.    The bill as  sub-  ! milted to the  House  required  that   all  I houses holding  a   license  should   have  : accomodation   for six people and a cor-  1 fain , number,   of   horses.      Mr.   Curtis  i  ! suggested that this be allowed to stand  ! in the case of. houses paying a >v>0  ; license fee, but that it   be   increased   to  made him a. mine manager, and continues his article in the same sulky  child style, of composition. The gentleman referred to once owned several  saloons in 'Idaho, out of which he made  no money, owing to the expensive  habits of his bartenders. Although  unfortunate in this branch of mercantile  life he has never had a judgment recorded against him. For more than 25  years he has been engaged in mining,  and all the money he'ever had was  made in that business, which indicates  a level head in regard to mining. For  four years the company he is now connected with has allowed him to handle  all thair money in the Slocan to their  entire satisfaction. In hiring men he  bars no man capable of doing 'a fair  day's work, whether he is union or nonunion. The public can easily judge  whether men or this kind are wanted in  the country, in preference to amateur  scribes who disgrace the dignity of the  press, because an ad or two has slipped  from their grasp.  MONKY    PAID    OVER.  '''he Marion deal was closed up satisfactorily to all concerned on Monday  and the Marion company given a clear  title to the property by Messrs. Sproat,  Mclnnes and Marino, the original  locators, thev receiving checks for the  full amount of the balance due on the  bond���something like ��15,000. The  exact basis of settlement is of little  public importance. The fact that the  company has taken the property over  and will prosecute development on a  much larger scale than heretofore is  sufficient.  The Merriinac bond, a later purchase  by the Marion people, has not been  taken up yet, but will in all probability  be closed this week. This property  lies 1.00 feet below the Marion group.

However, the best  method to follow to ensure, government  assistance is for the mining companies  operating there to demonstrate the  pressing need of the road by starting  work at once from their properties to  the llai below���the proposed terminus  of the trunk road. The government  has always shown a willingness to put  up naif the cost of building- such roads  as this, and there, is no reason to suppose that it will do less for the road up  Silver Mountain.

My large experience in all diseases  of women has brought to my knowledge thousands of cases where women and virgins have been needlessly  subjected to revolting exposures and  painful operations, only to be muti  la ted. for lite and left in a far worse  condition than when they applied for  relief.  Who can enumerate the cases in  wMch the abdomen has been opened  for supposed ovarian diseases when  not a trace ot a pathological (diseased)  condition was discoverable? Who  will write the history of the cases in  which perfectly healthy ovaries have  been removed without one shadow of  improi ement in the general condition  of the patient?

One can say without exaggeration  that the most religious times and the  most religious peoples, or those in which  or among whom the power of thecliurch  has been the strongest, have, generally  speaking, been the most immoral. One  has evidence enough in the horrors of  the. Middle Ages, and if to-day it be  otherwise, it is not- to religion that we  owe the change, but to the spread of  education and the progress of intelligence.
