Slocan lake to a point halfway between  Eig-ht and Ten Mile creeks to the point  of commencement.  The Slocan City Mining Division  shall comprise that area of country  drained by streams flowing into Slocan  lake above (south) of a point halfway  between Eig*ht and Ten Mile creeks on  the east shore of lake and above a point  halfway north of the mouth of Indian  Kootenay outlet to a point where such  height of land joins the height  of land  forming divide between   watershed of  Slocan river and Kootenay,lake; thence  northerly along such  height of land to  creek on south and Eig'ht and Four Mile  creeks on north;   thence westerly, following* height of land  between  Eig-ht  and Ten Mile creeks to a crossing of  Slocan lake to a point half a mile above  Indian creek,  on west   bank   of such  lake; thence westerly, following- northern boundary of watershed of Indian  creek   to a point   where   it   joins the  heig-ht of land separating drainag-e area  of Slocan lake from  drainage area of  the Arrow lake;   thence southerly, following such heig-ht of land continuing  easterly   to   mouth    of   Little Slocan  river ancl point of commencement.  The Ainsworth Mining* Division starts  on the height of land forming- divide  separating* watershed of Kootenay river  on east from Kootenay lake on the west  at a point  where such  divide is joined  by the heig'ht of land between drainag-e.  area of Gray's and   Crawford creeks;  thence northerly,   following- divide separating'the drainage area of Kootenay  and Upper Columbia river on east from  drainage area of chose rivers emptying  in Kootenay lake on west to a point on  suck divide where it joins the heig'ht of  land between drainage areas of Bearer  creek on  the   north  and. the  Duncan  river on the south;   thence southerly,  following the divide between the drainage areas of the  Duncan   river on the.  east and Fish river and Trout lake on  the west; thence westerly along* heig-ht  at' land forming  southern  boundary of  Hall or Cameron creek to a point where  it joins the height of land between Duncan and Lardo rivers; thence southerly  along* such height of land  to   a  point  where it joins the height of land forming southern boundary of Healy creek;  continuing westerly along* divide between Tenderfoot and Poplar, creeks to  a height of land forming* divide between  drainage area of Kootenay lake on east  and Slocan lake on west; thence southerly along such divide to a point on  such height of land  where it joins the  heig'ht of land between  drainage areas  of Coffee and Kokanee creek;   thence  along*  southern  watershed   of   Coffee  creek   to   Balfour;     thence    crossing*  Kootenay lake on Crawford bay to a  point on east shore of such  latter between   Grav's and   Crawford   creeks;  thence following such eastern boundary  line to point of commencement.  1 AMERICA'S LUGERNEi  v'o  s  SS  | Written for The Licuce." I sky is rapidly overcast and the moon is  The rising* of the October full moon j hid from  view.      The   waves   roll  up  over the twin peaks of Silver mountain  is a memorable scene in New Denver:  at once unique and beautiful to behold.  A short time before it rises the peaks  of the mountain are capped by a halo  of lig-ht.   To the   west, across Slocan  lake,   its   silvery    reflection    glistens  among*   the   icefields    of   the   Lower y  glacier, lying on the crest of the Valhalla mountains;   to the east, away up  Carpenter creek canyon, its light shines  down on the slopes of Payne mountain,  and lights up the great Four Mile basin  and the northern slopes of Red mountain.   New Denver is still  in the shadow, but while we   are   admiring- the  beauty- of the picture, and  watching*  the white lig-ht climbing from  cliff to  cliff, and penetrating*  the dark valleys,  a glimpse of the moon suddenly draws  the eye to the highest pinnacle ofthe  great twin sentinels. Slowly it enlarges  until at last it hang-s like a g-Iobe of  light directly over the peaks.   Its light  glistens and   glides over the rippling  waters of the lak?, steals up the streets  ancl highways and byways,  and it is  moonlif-lit in the Queen City of the lake.  The electric street lamps are dimmed  in the brightness of the moonlight      It  is everywhere, and even penetrates the  deep-shaded   lover's nooks and lights  up the trails through  the woods to the  several mines hard by.    Out   on  the  placid waters   of   the   lake moonlight  rowing parties enliven  the scene, and  make merry the evening  hours  with  their hilarity.  Standing* upon the lake shore one's  attention is attracted across the water  to Mill creek, where there's a light in  the window shining for all. It is that  in the home of Big Sandy McKay. Off  to the north the lights of our neighboring town of  Rosebery,  shine over the  higher and higher, and dash over the  shore. It is one of those hurricanes  that sweep down the mountain passes;  fierce while it lasts, but soon over, and  the wind lulls as suddenly as it came.  The clouds disappear, and the moonlight is brighter than before. The  picture is even more enchanting*, and,  tired with watching the ever-changing*  scenes of grandeur, we seek our humble  home for rest. W.D.  TROUT    LAKE    ITEMS.

R.  engine as it rolls  on its way   and climbs the mountain  side to  Sandon.     Still   nearer,  across  Bigelow bay, the  Mollie Hughes group  and farther east and higher up on Goat  mountain the Capella group, show their  lights.    Away to the east, up  Denver  canyon, the lig*hts of the famous Payne  mine are in evidence night aftec night,  suggesting the permanency of its record.  Back down the canyon again, and near  to   town,   "Batt"   keeps   vigil   at  the  Mountain Chief   and   keeps   his light  burning.   Up on the broad bosom of  Silver mountain the camp lights of the  California,  Marion-Merrimac,  and the  Hartney mines are to be seen in their  respective locations;   backed up by the  Home Run, Mowich, Anglo-Saxon, Lost  Tiger, etc.;   thence down through the  foothills to the lake are the Queen City,  the    Frisco,     Ruby,    Fidelity-Bosun,  Neglected, etc.  Away to the south, beyond the cosy-  little town of Silverton (whose brilliant  lights though not seen are often heard)  the hoisting works of the Galena Farm  loom up in the moonlight, and the phenomenal Noonday sends forth its natural stream of wealth, while farther  south and beyond, the occasional camp  fires along the gold belt of Red mountain show up the persevering efforts of  the active and ever hopeful prospector.  All these are rapidly passed in view  and our gaze wanders hack to the  placid waters of the Silvery Slocan glittering in the moonlight. We muse on  the days���but "we will touch the harp  gently" and leave each reader to recall  their own happy, loving memories.  Again we must not forget that our  lovely lake in all its beauty, like many  a pretty girl, has its moments of temper, and when she stamps her foot and  the frown gathers, it is time for little  boats to scud for the shore and even the  stately "Slocan" is fain to drop a little  dignity and pass the wharf to sheer  round to the friendly shelter of Union  bay. While we are gazing and musing  a fresh breeze comes up the lake  Glancing to the south, we notice a dark  cloud rising over Six Mile point ancl  rolling rapidly up toward the glaeier.  The breeze grows stronger, the white-  caps chase each  other up the lake; the  A ton of ore at one shot was brought  down recently in the workings of the  Nettie L. This large mass was almost  solid grey copper.  On the Eva group, in the Fish creek  camp, preparations are being made to  drive 200 feet each on the vein, crosscuts  to be extended right and left at intervals  of 50 feet in order to thoroughly sample  the ledge.  A large force of men are now working  on the Beatrice. The work on the trail  to the mine is being pushed at both  ends, but on account of the difficulties  met with it is not expected to be completed for some time yet.  The returns from the shipment of the  120 sacks of ore from the Ethel this fall  netted $370."54.

A very fine strike was made recently  on the Big Five and Sunset groups,  showing grey copper and galena of an  exceptionally high grade.

An Ottawa despatch says that the  trade returns for the Dominion for the  year ending June 30th show a total for  imports of $162,764,308, out of which  S21,581,506 came from Great Britain and  814,471,240 from the United States.  These figures show an increase of over  $6,000,000 in the. trade with the United  States as compared with 1898, and an  increase of ��3,000,000 in the trade with  Great Britain.

SCRAPS FROM THE- JEDITOK'S DESK.  Many premature deaths have occurred in South Africa during; the  past two months.  in some of the small cities of Ohio  and Indiana girls act as street-car  conductors. They work nine hours a  day and get $4 a week. The fair  ones might fare'better, il they would  come west and look at the scenery.  the cardinal principles of the silver  Republicans, aa related to finance,  and especially as to the unrestricted  coinage of gold and silver and opposition to the surrender of the money  sovereignty of the nation to banking  institutions. In addition-to this, silver  Republicans, without exception, will-  be-found lined up against th�� retention of sovereignty1 by- the United  States over the Fillipinos, and. in  general, against the imperialistic  policy of the* present '��� administration.  It will also take ground against the  concentration of the wealth and business of the country by. a comparatively few, in the form of trusts and kindred combinations of capital. If the  Democratic and Populist parties shall  declare in their respective national  conventions along lines indicated  above, they will have the cordial  and effective co operation of the silver j  Republican forces, but not otherwise  ICKSOMJTIONS    FOR    l.��0��.  The soldiers are working long  .shifts in Africa. They recently ran  into a large shoot-of Boers at Modder  river and put them all over the dump.  It is expected that just as soon as all  their machines are in position and a  full force of men in action that not  even a piece" of Boer float will be left  around the diggings, and the Union  Jack will flap with the breeze, unmolested and'un torn by the bullets ofthe  enemy.   An American girl worth 20 millions  has promised to marry a young remittance man, provided he will win  the V. C. in South Africa. This is  the rst time we have heard of a  money value being attached to the  medal so many soldiers sigh for, and  we trust that the young fellow in this  case will: win it, although we would  rather die than have that kind of a  girl, even if she has 20 millions of the  god that most of people would sell  their soul for.  The late editorial importations from  Manitoba, who seem to have taken it  upon themselves to revolutionize  things in Kootenay, especially in the  line of cutting down miners' wages,  are never tired of flaunting the red  flag "anarchy" to the breezes, and  crying for its suppression. They  will find in time that the "anarchy"  they speak about is all in their mind.  It is that kind that the laws of the  land cannot suppress; the only way  to get at it is by suppressing them,  and this the people of Kootenay are  doing most effectually, by a process  slow but sure.  At considerable expense, we have  prepared a set of; resolutions for the  guidance of Pilgrims and others during the closing year of the 19th century.    Here they are:  1. Never drive stakes on another  man's ground Look for virgin territory.  2. Look not upon the wine when  it is yellow, except through a telescope.  3. Do not try to make a million in  a minute. Remember that New  Denver was not builtin a day.  4. If you become weary and  heavy laden���with boozerino���do not  fall by the wayside. Keep moving  until the jag assimilates itself with  the atmosphere.  5. Be good to the printer. Always  pay him promptly, and your future  life will be a continual sip of unalloyed bliss.  Prospectors,  ?  Young men, become your own  assayers. Three months will  teach yon assaying for gold,  silver and copper. Live and  learn how, cheaper than you now  live   Columbia College,  Board and Instruction in assaying  ... all for.. ..  ONLY $26.00 PER MONTH  6. Do not get run over by the  street cars of Nelson. You must not  take them for real estate signs:  7.

The value of the entire amount will  be a little less than $2,750,000. The  increase over last year is considerable, but at the same time it is somewhat disappointing. At the close of  this year the Slocan will haveship-  ped about 20,000 tons,- valued ��� at  nearlv $2,000,000. If no labor trouble  had arisen the Slocan would have  shipped about; $5,000,000 worth of ore  this year. Next year it is expected  that the Slocan will open the eyes of  the financial world with its wonderful production ot rich ores.

Out of the breath of a thousand springs,  Out of the chill of a thousand snows,  Cometh the song that I sing today,  A song that is new and is Old alway;  A little joy, a little woe,  An unseen path we blindly go,  A little time for weeping.  A little hour to walk or creep,  A little faith but half to keep���  And then there comes the sleeping.  A song that echoes down the years;  A Kong as old as time,is old ;   .  A song we hear with falling tears.  While heads turn gray and hearts grow  cold;  The old;'old song, the song of life,  A chant from out a vale of strife!  A little joy, a little woe,  An unseen path we blindly go,  A little time for weeping.  A little hour to walk or creep.  A little faith but half to'keep���  And then the final sleeping.  TKIAr,S    OF   THK    POET.  A western editor was sitting in his  office one day, when into the room  came a man whose brow was clothed  with thunder, Fiercely sei/.ingachair,  he slammed his hat oii the table, hurled  his umbrella on the floor and sat down.  "Are you the editor," he asked.  "Ves."  ���'Can you read writing!1"  "Of course."  "Read that, then,*' he said, thrusting  at the colonel an eiivolope, ���with an inscription upon it.  "13���," said the colonel, trying to  spell it.  "That's'not a .13, it's an 8," said the  man.  "S; oh, yes: 1 see! Well, it looks  like'Salt for dinner,' or 'souls'of sinners,'" said the colonel.  "No, sir.'* replied the man; "nothing-  of the kind! That's my name���Samuel  H Bnumer. 1 knew yon couldn't read.  1 called to see you about that poem of  mine you printed the other day, on the  'Surcease of Sorrow.'"  "1 don't remember it.'* said the colonel.  ���'Of course yon don't, because it went  into theYpaper under the infamous title  of 'Smearcase To-morrow."  "A blunder of the compositor's I suppose."  "Yes, sir, and that's what I want to  see you about. The way in which that  poem was mutilated was simply scandalous 1 haven't slept a night since.  It exposes me to derision. People  think that 1 am an ass. Let me show  you. The first Ihe, when 1 wrote it,  read in this way:'  "'lam   weary  of  the  tossing of the  ocean as it ���heaves!'  "It is a lovely line, too.    But imagine  my horror, and the anguish of my family, when I opened your paper and saw  the line transformed into:  " 'I am wearing out  my   trousers till  thev're open at the knees!'  ''That is  a   little   too   much.     That  seems to me like, carrying the thinii* an  inch or two too far.  "But look a-lu'.ie at the fourth verse.  That's worse yet:  " "Cast thy pearls before the swine, and  lose theni in the dirt.'  "He sets it up in this fashion:  " 'Cart thy pills before the sunrise, and  love them if they hurt.'  "Now, isn't that a blood-curdling outrage on a man's feeling's***      I'll leave it  to you if it isn't."  "It's hard, that's a fact," said the  colonel.  "And then take the lifth verse. In  the original manuscript it sain, plain as  daylight:  " 'Take away the jingling money;   it is  only glittering dross!'  "In its  printed   form   you made unsay:  "'Takeaway   the tingling honey; put  some flies in for tin- boss "  "By George, I felt like  braining you  with a fire-shovel!

I wrote:  " 'Lying by a weeping willow, underneath a gentle slope.'  "That is beautiful,1 poetic, affecting.  Now, how" did your vile sheet present it  to the public?  " 'Lying to a weeping widow, to induce  her to elope.'  "Weeping widow, mind you! A  widow! Oh, thunder and lightning!  This is too much!  "I think I have a constitutional right  to murder that compositor;   don't you?''  "T think you have; but he is out just  now.   Come in to-morrow"  "I will." said the poet; "and 1 will  come armed."  CERTIFICATE OF IMPROVEMENTS  -KKypt Mineral Claim.  Situate In the Slocan Mining Division of West  Kootenay District.

If Buller had a little sense,if Lawton had  my head,  The wars would both be ended and rebellion would be dead.  If Bryan   my   advice   had   asked Ohio  would be his;  Nebraska'd  be McKinley's if he'd only  known his "biz;"  Tho czar might gobble China if he'd stop  to ask me how;  If Wilhelm  would but heed  my words  he'd rule all Europe now.  Sir Thomas could  have won  the cup if  he had talked with me;  I could have kept the  Charleston safely  floating on the sea;  Wisconsin could have won from   Yale if  she'd known what to do,  And I don't mind admitting that I could  have told her, too.  I am a man you all  have met; vou  see  me every day;  No matter what is  to be done, I always  know the way;  No matter what another's  done, I think  you will recall  I could have done it better; I'm the man  who knows it all.  ���Chicago Post.  RKDUCINU    SULPHUR     OBK.  Sew Inventions.  Consul Hungartner writes from Catania that tha method generally used in  Sicily for rhe reduction of sulphur is  very primitive. The kiln is built into  the ground to a depth of from six to nine  feet, the walls being of masonry and cylindrical in shape, with a sloping floor of  stone and gypsum. When the calcarone,  or kiln, is filled the ore in the bottom is  ; in large pieces, so that there may be no  impediment to the olid (Sicilian term  for molten sulphur) running out, and  the pieces of ore become gradually smaller until the top of the calcarone is  reached. The ore is then heaped up in  the form of a large cone, and is covered  with turf, sand, and refuse from former  fusions, in order to prevent loss and to  protect it somewhat from the elements.  Durine the filling process several air  shafts are placed into the ore, by means  of which the fire is communicated thereto, and through combustion of the mineral itself the whole mass melts, this  process lasting from ten to twenty  days. A small hole is made in the lowest point of the wall, through which the  liquid sulphur runs, and is taken off into  square wooden forms, containing from  130 to 170 pounds of sulphur. This is  continued day by day, until all of the  sulphur is extracted.  The capacity of tlie kilns varies from  7,000 to 52,500 cubic feet, and one fusion  of a large calcarone lasts three months.  Oue great disadvantage of this system is  the damage to vegetation by sulphur  fumes. The calcarone is allowed by law  to be in operation only from June 2S to  Dec. 31.

He does  not want the earth, but he would like a  portion of the Slocan trade.  It was General Custer who said, some  thirty years ago, that warfare in a mountainous country was almost impossible  without the aid of mules. In view of the  things that resultad from a mule stampede near Ladysmith, the other day, the  British war office will probably rank  Custer as an American humorist of malicious disposition.  There was an old Mule from Missouri  Who shot his hind limb out likb fury;  A Zulu said'-There!"  As he went through the air,  "Dat mule's a lalapaluly."
