Array HACK    FROM    BROOKXYN.  Mr.  ;A.    JB.    Fauquier     Tells    What  Think* of the ftew Town.  H��  A. E. Fauquier returned Sunday  from a trip to the new toAvn Brooklyn,  The trip Avas one of business and Mr.  Fauquier's observations Avere made  solely from a business standpoint. The  town is situated on Arrow lake, three  miles beloAv Dog- creek. It is the  supply point for the construction forces  on the Columbia and Western railroad  ���extension,   It is a typical   tent towu,  there being- only a few frame building's  erected, and has a population of 400 or  500 people    There are 36 buildings constructed and in the course of construction.   All carpenters are employed, and  there are feAv men desiring work who  cannot  find it.    Of the 86 Buildings 14-  are saloons.   Thirty-six liquor licenses  have been applied for.   The proprietor  ���of the first hotel saloon to open took in  ���enough over his bar the first night to  pay for the building and stock of liquor.  All classes of business enterprises are  represented, and every Slocan toAvn has  a representative there'but New Denver.  The future of the toAvn is yet an unsettled   question.    The  C. "P. R.   has  bought a toAvnsite a mile or two below  Brooklyn and   will  probably put  it on  the  market.   The road does not run  into Brooklyn, but runs along the hill  side 1,600 feet  above   the toAvn.   It is  just back of Brooklyn that the 6,000-foot  tunnel is to be cut'through  the mountain, and it is here that the most expensive mile of road is to be laid, costing  ��126,000.    One million dollars will  be  spent on  the  road from   the starting  Eoint at Robson to the tunnel opening  ack of Brooklyn, a distance of about  15 miles  Three hundred head of horses are  already at Brooklvn Avaiting to be employed' on the road, and men are coming-  in by the hundreds. It will boa busy  toAvii for nine months oi a year at least,  and possibly a permanent supply centre.  discount to be imposed Avill be hardly  sufh'cont to pay for disposing of the currency. Under the hcav revenue law on  the other side, an American bank cannot put Canadian money into circulation Avithout a tax of 10 per cent, thereon. This necessitates shipping the  bullion, back to the nearest Canadian  bank to Imve it exchanged, and the  expense connected Avith this is said to  amount to nearly two per cent, of the  amount inA'olved: It is estimated by a  prominent Spokane banker that the  Canadian money passing through the  Spokane banks amounts to ��350,000  monthlv.  DENVERITES   AND     NEIGHBORS  IJKOOKLN    BANNOCKS.  From the Brooklyn News.  When'one goes on the townsite he  requires a speaking trumpet. The  pounding and sawing is deafening.  The number of visitors avIio are interested in the town of Brooklyn is surprising. Every steamer lands a long-  list of "passengers.  There Avill be more buildings erected,  more work of all descriptions done in  Brooklyn in the coming 30 or 60 days,  than any other toAvn in Kootenay.  ., Chas. Dixon has taken the company  mess house and Avill furnish meals to  every one avIio has the price, 25 cents.  Tickets for sale at! the Headquarters  building-.  Brisbois and Miller have isecured a  contract for cutting cordwook. They  expect to furnish the town with dry  wood this Avinter and are uoav at Work  on their contract.  ' John McDonald, the Avell-known boat  builder from Slocan City, has arrived,  bringing Avith him several of his row  boats, it is his intention to erect a  house near tne foot of Stewart avenue  to shelter his boats.  Brooklyn has a daily mail, a hcaa's-  paper, a beautiful lake front, ten or a  dozen hotels, three daily boats, headquarters for construction work of 105  miles of road, and a better prospect for  groAving into a city of several thousand  people than any town in Kootenay.  The sale of lots continues 'unabated,  but the trading has been largely confined to private .sales between the  merchants avIio are located and. others  coining in, each sparring to obtain  Avhat seems to him the most adA'antago-  ous location for his particular business.  Mr. Hunter, of the firm of Wm Hunter  & Co., was in town Monday. Her purchased another lot on First street and  carpenters haA'e begun the erection of  a store building 24x50. He expects to  :-.afry a general stock of goods, Avhich  Avill lie in charge of .1. A. Kirkpatriek,  avIio is an old employee of the com- i  pany and has been stationed at Silver-!  ton. j  Just back of the town, on a gentle I  slope OA'erlooking the lake for miles in I  each direction, the company hospital is  being erected. The plans call for a  substantial and comfortable building  24x50, which will be supplied with all  modern coiiA'eniences and will lie under  the care of Dr. Ewing, qf Toronto, who  has charge of this section of the hospital  Avork. He is assisted by Dr. Dutton, of  Spokane.  NeAV Denver needs a fire hall.  To Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Henderson,  Slocan City, a son.  Mr. Green's cause has lost to an enormous extent in this vicinity, and there  is now no probability of his being  elected.

All Avork has been resumed at the  Payne mine and the trannvay is iioav  taxed to its full capacity. Three cars  of ore Avere sent doAvn Friday, and this  Avill be the daily shipment' for some  time. ' .  Assessment Avork on the SilA'erite, a  claim below the Palmira, owned by  Cory and Foster, has exposed some fine  ore. The owners Avill sink a shaft ai.tl  do considerable Avork on the property  this summer.  There is the possibility of a real live  sawdust ring circus coming to New  DeiiA'cr for a one night's show. The  advance agent was here to look into  the matter on Tuedays. New Denver  offers the best inducements of any town  in Kootenay.  Church of England services on Sunday next will be as follows: Holy  Communion at 0 a.m. Morning Prayer  and sermon at 11 a.m. Evening-Prayer  and sermon at 7:30. The Venerable  Edwyn S. W. Pentreath. Archdeacon of  Columbia, will ofliciate.  A force of 20 men is engaged in  development Avork on the Enterprise.  Ncav tunnel sites are being surveyed  and the Avork is being pushed in' all  directions. The ore that has long been  stored in the ore sheds is being shipped  to the smelter, and shipments Avill continue indefinitely.  Arrangements are about completed  for the proposed Sunday school picnic,  taken in hand tAvo Aveeks ago. Sandon  and Three Forks will co-operate, Avith  Silverton and New DeiiA'er. Special  boat and train service is being arranged, posters Avill be printed and the affair  made one of the grandest successes of  the season. The band will go from  New Denver, and everything-'possible  done to give the children a big time.  Particulars Avill be forthcoming next  Aveek.  Stockholders HeftiHO f o Let. the Property  <Jo for Tlir����? Million.  Last Tuesday night at Rossland the  ileal for the purchase of the Le Roi by  the   British   America   Corporation   for  $3,000,000   was   declared  off by all the  parties to the transaction.   A cable was  receiA'ed in  the afternoon from London  from   Whitaker   Wright,   stating    that  unless the deal could   be put through by  the 12th of July  the  $500,000 put up  as  earnest money  by his company should  be Withdrawn.    The  British  American  Corporation went to those who Avere upholding the sale and asked if they could  deliver the property by the 12th of July.  The reply Avas that they did not think  they   could   do   so.   Then   the  British  America Corporation people went to the  Turner faction and  said  they desired to  draw'doAvn their check for a half million.  The Turner faction joyfully acceded to  the proposition.   Those who favored the  sale requested that all injunctions, etc.,  be declared off.   This was ag-reed to and  the check Avas withdrawn from the bank  by the British America Corporation people.   The latter directed that the pooled  stock Avhich Avas in escrow in the bank be  delivered to the trustees of the Le Roi  pool, Senator  Turner,   Colonel Turner  and Colonel  Peyton.    This   was   done.  Thus the   deal   is  completely  off and  Senator Turner and his friends have won  the game that has been so long before  the public and which has been so full of  dramatic details.  It is asserted by those who so determinedly opposed the deal that the Le  Roi is the greatest and most valuable  mineral property in B. C. or anywhere  in the northwestern portion of this continent, and that prior to the attempt to  sell the property for $3,000,000 the stock-  was quoted in the market and could be  readilv sold for $7.50 to $8 per share or  on a valuation of $3,500,000 to $4,000,-  000. It is alleged that many thousand  shares of stock have been- sold at these  prices and that the property is really  worth more than $5,000,000 and is more  \-aluable to-day than at any other time in  its historv. It is said that the attempt  to sell for" $3,000,000 was an effort to dispose of the property at such a grossly  inadequate price as to constitute an attempt to defraud the stockholders not  agreeing to the sale.  The   American   Troops ax   Successful on  Spanish Soil as in Spanish Waters.  After some Aveeks of unimportant engagements between the United States  naval forces and the" Spanish forts,  Avhile waiting for the landing- of the  American soldiers on Spanish soil, the  first real land fighting of the Avar began  on July 1st in front of Santiago.  The Avar department at Washington  received the folloAving from General  Shatter, dated at Siboney, reporting the  engagement: "Had a very. hea\ry engagement to-day, which lasted from 8  a.m. until sundoAvn. We have carried  their outworks and are iioav in possession of them. There is iioav about three-  quarters of a mile of open between my  lines and the city. By morning- the  troops Avill be entrenched, and a considerable augmentation of forces Avill  be there. Genei'al LaAvton's division  and General Bates' brigade have been  engaged all day in carrying El Caney,  which Avas accomplished." At 4 p.m. tlie  army Avas Avell in line and will camp in  front of Santiago during- the night. I  regret to say that our casualties will be  above 400." Of these not many are  killed. Shatter."  A later dispatch ,'from the Santiago  battle says: The battle of Santiago  raged all clay, and at 4 o'clock in the  afternoon 15,000 American troops are  thundering at the outer fortifications of  the doomed city. Since daybreak General Shatter's army has fought its Avay  across tAvo and a half miles of bitterly  contested and strongly fortified country,  and the entire line "of the men to tlie  right is Avithin gunshot of Santiago  town.  The Spanish killed and Avounded are  undoubtedly numbered by hundreds.  The Spanish strongholds of Caney'and  El Paso have fallen and the fort at  Aguadores, just east of Morro castle, on  tlie coast, has been blown to ruins by  the guns of the fleet. With the exception of about 1,000 guarding Baiquiri  and Juragua, the entire army is engaged, together Avith 4,000 of General  Garciivs Cuban troops.  EXPECTED TO  TAKE  SANTIAGO.  weather, and being more durable,  pavement might be introduced  Toronto for good residence streets.  "Lord Douglas, who represents, it is  said, a London syndicate,   is unwatering  the Wellington  mine.   We  were astonished at the magnitude of the old workings and the size of the veins, ordodes, to  use the local term.   We went down 180  feet to the third   level,   but could not  reach the fourth 4eve!p,'since it was not  yet pumped out.   There are two A'eins,  averaging perhaps eight feet wide, and  copper pyrites could be seen  wherevei  the quartz AA'as   exposed on a fresh surface.   Lord Douglas is working especially   at   the   Taylor  shaft,   between  the  Wellington and,Bruce Mines.    The A'ein  is well shown  by an   open   cut at this  point, and carries some rich ore.    The  A'ein is in all 7,800 feet in length, including the parts  formerly  worked and supposing it to be   continuous   where iioav  covered Avith drifts, so that, in all probability, a very large amount   of ore   is  available.     The   enclosing  rock  is the  diabase   mentioned    as   furishing-   the  Cleveland paving material.   Apparently  it is a great eruptive boss, and there is  no reason why the  veins  should not go  doAvn to much greater depths than they  have hitherto been mined."

Indian  Our    International    Difference*.  OUR   3IOVBY    DISCOUNTED.  At a recent  meeting- of the Spokane  Clearing- House; association at which all  the Spokane banks were represented, it  Avas decided that  on and after  July 10  /next,  Canadian   money would   only be  iaccepted  at a discount of two per cent.  1 The Spokane bankers say they have lost  money every time  they  accepted Canadian   monev   at   par,   and   that    the  The Dominion Go\rernmenthas receiA'ed copies of the protocols agreed upon by  the governments of the United States  and Great Britain for the guidance of the  forthcoming international commission at  Quebec.  The commission is entitled to consider  the following subjects,   embracing practically all those  at which the Dominion I  and the United States have been at vari-j  ance for years. j  The Behring Sea sealing question, re- !  ciprocal mining realizations, the Canada-j  Alaska boundary question, restrictive  regulations for preserving tlie fisheries  on the great lakes, the north Atlantic  fisheries question and the bonding question connected 1 herewith, the alien labor  law and the reciprocity of trade.  From the present appearances the commission will not meet until August. The  final meeting will beheld in Ottawa.  A JLiittI<.'  Plotting and  Planning.  Mr. Robert Green seems to have secured the nomination of Slocan divison in a  mannersimilar to Mr. Deane, Kamloops.  However, the popular candidate is bound  to win in. both cases. Anyone, with a  little plotting and planning can secure the  nomination, but it takes tlie nominee of  the people to secure the election.���Kamloops Standard.  The reason why very tall girls don't  get married easily js.- because whenever  they try to act like little, helpless, nestling things that want to be taken care of,  thev get ridiculous.  On July 1st President McKinlcy signed the Indian appropriation bill, which  throAvs open to mineral locotion the rich  south half of the Colville reservation.  Speaking of the proposed opening a  feAv days before the bill was signed, the  Republic Pioneer says :  The south half of the Colville Indian  reservation is the objective point of an  immense number of people these days.  There is a great ��� hegira to that locality,  and Republic has furnished seA'eral hundred of the number already there.  Every trail leading to the line is dotted  with prospectors and their outfits. It  would be difficult to make an accurate  estimate of the number of people already  on the "south half," or camped within  convenient distance of the dividing line.  They are all waiting for the bill to puss  Congress throwing open the "south half"  to mineral entry. This momentous  event lias been looked and hoped for for  many weeks, and it may be the Indian  'appropriation bill will pass without the  "south half" being mentioned in it. If  such should be the case, a wail will go  up that will be painful to listen to.  There are at least 3,000 "sooners" on  the coveted ground. They are to be  found secreted in the timber and along  streams. The Indian police find it ini-  possiole to drive them off.- A iew are  made to leave, but as soon as the police  are out of sight the "sooner" is over the  line again. Hundreds of location notices  are posted and the date changed daily.  It is reported that tlie police are bribed  to allow certain individuals to hold  claims undisturbed, while others- are  forced to leave.  Remarked a returning prospector:   "I  know positively that two men offered an  Indian $100  in  exchange   for his   good  will,   and as   the}' are not disturbed  I  conclude the deal   went  through.    Yes,  sir;  there is lots of crooked work  going  on.    Why, I saw a company of three six  miles over the line with  a shaft down 10  feet, and they had  good ore.    There are  dozens of. such   oases.    I  estimate  the  number of people   waiting on the line at  5,000 and the   gang is  increasing  daily.  Occasionally some  one comes  aiong and  spreads the report  that  the  bill has lie-  come a law.    Then there is excitement."  There are all sorts of reports concerning  the joining   possibilities  of the  "south  half."    There are  those  who   put little  faith in its merit; there  are others who  predict great strikes.    There is mineral  belt   on   the   headwaters of  Nespelum  creek   that is  liable  to  bo  heard from.  There is  a big surface  showing and   the  rock  gives    good   assays.' 'There  is  a  chance for a i-amp'there.   ahd'a big one,  too, if the "south iialf" is  ibrown open.  The Spaniards opposing- General  Lawton's division lost in killed, avouihI-  ed or taken prisoners -2,000 men, and  the loss on the center and left must  be double that number.  General   LaAvton's    division   on the  extreme rig-ht, supported by Captain  Capron's battery, General Kent's division in the centre and General Wheeler's  division on the left, supported by Captain Grimes' battery,  planted on"a hill,  formed a line Avhich stretched across  the whole Avidth of the basin in Avhich  Santiago   lies,   a distance of fully five  miles.   Immediately in front of General  LaAvton   lay   Caney,   surrounded    by  blockhouses   and   entrenchments,  and  against this point were the operations  directed.    Beyond the San Juan ri\rer,  2,000 yards before the center and left,  lay a line of entrenchments, a mile west  of'the.city.    These two divisions Avere  covered   covered by a heavy ta'rigled  undergTOAvth   between   the San  Juan  and the Rio Guama.    On  the extreme  left,  on  the   heights   beyond Captain  Grimes' battery, > behind which, in the  shelter of an ofd sugar house,  the rear  cavalry   division   was   massed,    Avere  General Dunield's Michigan volunteers,  avIio moved out   at daylight over the  line   of   railroad   from' Siboney.   The  Americans had the advantage of the  sun in the morning, Avhich shone directly in the enemy's face.  " The engago'ments opened  when the  fleet lying outside the harbor entrance  began dropping shells into  the loAver  end of the .'Spanish earthworks.    This  firing, which Avas entirely  by bearings,  was not effectiA'e.  A later report from Santiago tells of  the destruction of the Spanish fort Moro  Castle, and the nuking of Admiral  Cei'A'era's fleet by Admiral Sampson.  Also of tin; capitulation of Santiago by  the, Spanish.  Nelson is a toAvn that Iciioavs just Iioav  to celebrate and has the people and  financial backing to do it. This is the  opinion of every Netv Denverite that  spent the holidays   there.   About 200  went from the lake towns. The smelter  toAvn Avas croAvded Avith visitors and the  sporting events Avent off Avith very little  hitch. There Avas some trouble,' of  course, but this is unavoidable and is  to be expected. The band boys and  lacrosse team are loud in their praise of  the treatment accorded them on all  sides. Nelson fully appreciated the  Avorth of the band,' and recognized in  it the best musical organization of the  kind in Kootenay. The lacrosse boys  put up as good a game as they could,  but were no match for the professional  men in the Nelson team. However,  they Avant to play a return game and  Nelson wtll probably meet them at the  Sandon celebration on Labor Day.  Nelson's two days celebration Avas tlie  best eA'er held in Kootenay.  Bears are unusually numerous this  year. And ithey are becoming more  reconciled to the advances of civilization, for instead of seeking the secluded  nooks by the mountain streams, they  are coming close into town. Almost  any day one or more can be seen in the  thicket betAveen toAvn and the railroad  station. A NeAV Denver sportsman met  one a Aveek ago, and bruin Avas evidently out on a button-holeing expedition  for he at once sought a closer acquaintanceship. But Johnny reached a safe  position up a tree and then fired tAAro  shots at the bear, neither of which took  effect. Finally bruin wandered off, and  the sportsman made for home.  On Monday the mail carrier had an  exciting experience. He Avas trudging  toivardthe station Avith mail bags on  his back, and his thoughts far aAvay  from his surroundings. Suddenly oil  the trail before him he met a bear as  big as a coav, Avith hair standing out,  eyes as red as fire and mouth Avide  open. Bruin Avas in a hurry, and Jack  made all haste to give him a. clear trail.  He hadn't lost any bears and didn't  Avant to start a menagerie. Dropping  his mail bags he ran to the road below  and hid! behind a Avoodpile. Bruin had  no desire to get into trouble Avith the .  Queen so did not temper Avith the mails  nor obstruct its passag'e any length of  time When the mail carrier recovered  from the effects of his hasty retreat, and  he Avas sure bruin did not Avant the trail  any longer, he gingerly Avent back to  his' mail bags and made a sneak for the  depot.  TROUT    LAKE  COPPER   AM)    PAVING.  THE   FOURTH   AT   SLOCAX    CITY.  A large crowd from Sandon and the  lake points Avent to Slocan City on the  Fourth and spent a very enjoyable day.  The celebration Avas not to be compared  with that of last 24th of May held there,  but considering everything Avas a very  creditable one, and Aveiit off well.  Several of the sporting eArents did Hot  come off, but enough Avasdone to satisfy  the visitors. A large croAvd was expected from Nelson, but the management failed to make arrangements Avith  the railroad company for a special train,  and the croAA'd Avas small from that  direction.   TRAILS    FROM    CODY.  Trails should be built from Cody up  Carpenter and Cody creeks. On the  south fork of Carpenter are the Mountain Con, Caustic, Greenhorn, Cody  Star, Tip Top, Naoma, Allagash and  many other claims lying idle for lack of  a trail. The same state of affairs exists  on Cody creek, Avhere the Constant.  Bolander, Noonday, Cameron and other  groups are in the same condition. The  building of these trails into the very  heart of the Slocan Avould be a paying  investment for the Government, as the  increased revenue would in a short time  more than pay for the expenditure.  GRATIFYING     KKTURXS.  From Sault Ste. Marie Prof. A. P.  Coleman of the Provincial Crown Lands  Department writes his chief, Director  Blue of the Bureau of Mines, as follows:  "We have just returned from a ten days'  (rip down the St. Mary's River, and  along the north shore of Lake Huron, as  far as Thessalon. We visited Garden  river, Echo lake, Bruce Mines and Thessalon, making a survey of the shores aud  pushing a few miles inland at each place.  The more important mines alon<; the  shore and inland have been visited, with  tlie exception of the placers near Thessalon, where we found that no work is at  present going on. We hope to see them  later in the summer.  "The most interesting point was, of  course, Bruce Mines. We found the  Cleveland Company at work with more  than 40 men at the quarry of 'trap' or  diabase, for the boulevards of that city.  Mr. Spence, who is managing the operations at the quarry, says that these roads  cost at present $2" per' square yard, and  that the surface, when, complete is far  better than asphalt, not having the  slippery character of   llie   latter in i-ainv  The returns from the Trail smelter of  the shipment recently made from the  Mdllie Hughes are A'ery gratifying, corroborating', the sampling at the mine,  and the assays made by Howard West.  The No. 1 lot gave 551 oz. silver and  810 gold: and the average returns from  the whole ore mined by the company  gave the satisfactory sum of $U~> per ton  nett.  .All's.  Gladstone'.-;  Oiw Divinity.  ill in !  Mrs.!  the  At a reception held in  a  great h  England  sometime   ago   Mr.   and  Gladstone,   were   guests.     During  evening it happened that Mr. Gladstone  was in the gallery directly above the (dace  in the parquet,Avhere .Mrs. Gladstone was  chatting with some ladies. In the course  of their conversation a question arose  Avhich the ladies could not settle satisfactorily.    Finally one said :  "Well, there is One above who knows  all things, and *ome day He will make  all things plain to us."  "Yes, yc^." replied Mrs. Gladstone,  "William will be down in a minute and  be will tell us all about it."  Some wonderful strikes are being made  at the foot of Trout Lake.    Among those  which have shown  up  richer than most  of the strikes  made  in this district dur-.  ing the last few years, and this is saying  a good   deal,   is   the  Pedro and   Lulus  groups.    The former of these  properties  is situated up  Canyon  creek and comprises three   claims,   the   Pedro,  Black  Jack and Solo.    This  property  has two  veins running through it and  as the result   of   development operations    some  very fine ore Avas exposed  which  gave  returns,   Avhen   subjected   to a test, of  2,100 ounces silver, $5 gold and  17  per  cent,   copper,   giving  a   total value  of  ��1,221.70   per   ton.  "Then   there   were  other assays,   one   from the upper and  the   other from   the   lower   A-ein Avhich  gave returns,   from   the former 2,021.44  ounces   sih'er   and   the   latter 1,233.74  ounces silver.    These last samples were  not tested for gold  or copper so it is not  known what the A-alues in these minerals  would have been.   Both of  these veins  are strong and well defined, being traceable for   a  considerable distance.   The  upper vein   is   from   two  and a half to  three feet Avide and the loAver about two  feet and  the character of the ore is a  galena heavily impregnated  with  grey  copper.   The owners of this  property,  the Sandin brothers and P. A. Lindgren,  intend after the trail up Canyon creek is  completed to   go in  for a  thorough development of these ore bodies, and they  confidently expect  that  before next fall  the property will be   in   a   fair way towards making a shipment of ore. ,  Then further down on Tenderfoot  creek, a tributary of the Lardo river,  about three miles below the foot of the  lake, the Lulus claim has been showing  up remarkably well. The lead on this  property is exposed for over 000 feet and  throughout that distance averages from  four, to twelve inches of solid galena and  grey copper. Numerous assays have  been taken of the ore along the surface  and they run all the way from SO to 400  ounces of silver and 72 per cent. lead.  Since early spring work has been going  on on this property and the 50-foot tunnel which is being run to tap the lead at  a depth of 70 feet, is now drawing near  its completion. When the vein is encountered it is expected that some very  rich ore will be struck. The Lulus is  owned by a company known as the Gold  Mining and hevclopment Co., and its  headquarters are at Spokane.  Another claim on the same creek  located last fall by P. L.

The vein is about live feet wide and well  defined, and Mr. Huffman has been busy  all spring driving a tunnel to tap the ore  body at a greater depth. This tunnel is in  35 feet, and it is expected that in 20 feet  further the lead will be encountered.  Two men are working on this claim.���  Tonic.

What does Mr. Green promise to  do if elected? Tack himself as a tail  to the opposition kite, that is all.  Some people will be Green enough  to vote against Retallack on Saturday,  but, as a rule the majority of the intelligent voters will mark their  ballots for John L.  Under the guidance ol such men  as Cotton and Martin how the ship of  state would drift? We trust that this  glorious Province Avill never suffer  from such a curse.  It was a hot night in Hades, and  Ananias had crawled out on the roof  to cool his heated imagination. One  of Bob Green's political meetings was  going on in Kaslo, and as old. Ananias  cocked his ear he caught onto all the  speeches. Later in the evening he  was heard to murmur, as he fanned  himself with a coal shovel. "Bless  you, my children. The old man is  proud of you. You beat his record  all hollow."  A "GOOD XATITKED SQUIB.  Mr. Green is a Aveak advocate of  a poor cause, and it is not surprising  that he should have fallen down so  hard in presenting his case before a  New Denver audience.  "Sir," dramatically exclaimed Mr.  Kellie to Mr. Retallack, in his talk  Wednesday night, "I will be elected  by as big a majority as you will."  Don't believe it. Mr. Kellie.  If all of Mr. Green's meetings in  this campaign turn as many oppositionists as did his Mew Denver,meeting Mr. Retallack will go in with a  greater majority than was ever given  to any man of this riding.  We would not sav a Avord to dissuade Mr. Kellie in his vain efforts  to aid Mr. Green in his campaign, but  he ought to know that he was a great  disappointment to the Oppositionists  of New Denver. Mr. Green's cause  suffered immensely at his hands.  No doubt Green has had designs  upon the B. C. Legislature for many  years, and has worked the glad hand  and Avinning smile whenever the opportunity presented itself, thereby  hoping to win votes when the time  arrived. His plan of action has been  fairly successful and many men will  vote for him from personal friendship,  Voters of this kind do not study the  interest of the district in whieh they  live. They Avould vote for Bob if he  was deaf and dumb, by allowing  their heart to rule their brains.  This paper was the first to advocate the establishing of a mint in  Canada. A campaign sheet at Kaslo  states that R. P. Green was the first  man to bring the matter co public  notice. No doubt he has done so, but  it was a long time after we had  written up the matter. We have also  been the first paper in B. C. to advance nearly all the reforms that  have taken place in the country, and  it affords us much pleasure to see  others get the credit for original ideas.  It is customary for gold standard  organs to speak sarcastically of any  enterprise that a man of pronounced  double standard views may enter into. The Engineer and Mining Journal of New York is no exception, and  when it learned that A, J. Warner,  probably the ablest exponent of the  double standard alive today, had entered into a gold mining enterprise,  it assailed the scheme. General  Warner replied to the article, and to  show its insincerity the E. & M. J.  refers to its article as "a good natured  squib."- In his reply Gen, Warner  states some sound truths that the  gold organ does not attempt to reply j  to.   Says he:  "'"he Engineering & Mining Journal is supposed to be a scientific jour  nal, or at any rate to be conducted  on scientific lines. Does the editor  think that conclusions from scientific  data must necessarily conform always to personal interests? Is that  the principle upon which the paper  is conducted? The Journal refers to  me as an 'opponent ot the yellow  metal." Does the editor know of any  bimetallism who opposes, or ever did  oppose, the use of gold as money?  They do oppose limiting money supply to gold alone, and contend that  the result of that policy, so far as it  has been carried, has resulted in 30  years in   more   than  Mwfcfcfclfclh-toTftTfft  Bank of  #  Established 1817.

Clouston, General Manager,  Branches ia all parts of Canada, Newfoundland, Great Britain, and  the United States.  . ���   '  New Denver branch  F. jr FINUCANE, Manager:  I  Bob Green is a first-rate fellow to  sit on a pickle barrel in his OAvn  grocery and tell the boys fish stories,  but when it comes to being a legislator for the great Slocan he becomes  like his name and would wither  away under the strain of public life.  What is the use of electing a weak  man who promises nothing if elected?  A man without a party, without a  policy, without force and legislative  ability to carry forward the banner  ot the rich Slocan, can do nothing but  obstruct legislation and retard progress in the district he represents.  Every Slocan miner knoAvs what a  scab is, and the trouble they have  caused the working miners of the  West. Every Slocan miner should  know that there are two scab newspapers in this district and they are  both asking that R. P. Green be elected for the local legislature.  Some men in the Slocan do not  want to vote for Retallack because  they have heard that some of the  Government people Avere Catholics in  religion. Men of this stripe belong  to another age and should go back to  the grave of superstition and stay  there. They are sadly out of place  in this age of freedom and advanced  ideas.    It having been reported that the  editor of this paper had money to  burn in the Government cause, Ave  would like to remark that such is not  the case. We have never received a  dollar from the Government. J. L.  Retallack or any of his friends to be  used in influencing votes. People who  OUK   DISTRICT   FIRST.  Reproductions have been made by  Mr. Green's organs of criticisms taken  from this paper denouncing the government for certain bad pieces of  legislation passed by the last legislature. We are pleased to see that the  weight of these criticisms is recognized. Our position then on these  questions is our position today. The  senseless pieces of legislation criticised by us then deserve no better  criticism today. The fault of such  legislation was quite as much that of  the opposition members as of the government supporters. What some of  the government members lacked in  brains and legislative ability the  opposition failed to supply.  The opposition members acted like  so many sheep without a bell-wether.  Their principle seemed to be "every  man for himself and may the devil  take the hindmost."   Asa result they  accomplished  absolutely nothing for  their  constituencies.     The government members have some pieces of  good legislation to their credit,   and  while   they   passed  some measures  that will never receive our endorsement,   they   acted wisely in many  matters affecting the Kootenay, and  have done much to regain the confidence of the electors of this riding.  It is to avoid so far as in our power  the   possibility  of  sending another  do-nothing  member from the Slocan  that we oppose the . election of Mr.  Green.    However faulty the party in  power may have been in the past in  its policy towards the mining section  of Kootenay,   it is  infinitely better  than no party at all.   Four years ago  the opposition could claim a leader  whose   principles  were   sufficiently  known to at least command a hearing.  In the last house that party flew to  pieces and today there is nothing left  of it but a handful of "independents,"  whose principle seems to be for self-  aggrandizement and personal gain,  with little or no regard for the sec  tions thev represent.  Through the election of such men  nothing can be gained.     They have  value of gold, carrying along with it  all the world's debt's. They contend  further that if the policy is persisted in,  of extending the single gold standard  to all nations, in spite of anv probable  increased production, gold will, in  time, double again, and that while  that is going on the essential elements of justice in the dealings of  men are wanting.  "The Journal says further that  there are rumors that I have repudiated metallic money altogether,  and have become an advocate of "fiat  paper, pure and simple." I believe  in the quantitative theory of money,  that value in money depends upon  the number of money units as compared with their use or the demand  for them, and not upon color, specific  gravity or fiber, whether metallic or  vegetable, of the material used for  money. Does the editor of the Journal hold to a different theory? If so  it would be interesting to have such  a theory scientifically defined."  PROVINCIAL SECRETARY'S OFFICE.

The appointment of Alexander  Sproat to be a Gold Commissioner at  New Denver, a Stipendiary Magistrate and a Deputy Registrar of the  County Court of Kootenay holden at  New Denver, will be glad tidings to  our citizens and the Slocan generally.  It is tangible evidence that the Slocan is to have an independent government centre where all the official  business of the riding will be transacted, and that New Denver has  been made the government seat tor  all time to come. It is another big  stride forward for the Queen City on  the lake.  The worth  of a Dollar  Is as much in the  spending of it as in  the making of it.  Money spent foolishly brings bad results.

In a decidedly disjointed address  last Wednesday evening Mr. Kellie  said for the opposition that the Slocan  had never been represented by a  government man, an opposition man,  for government revenue, patronage  or anything else. Mr. Kellie once  misrepresented this riding at Victoria  and he ough*; to knoAv. An honest  confession is good for the soul.  believe anything else are laboring j tailed in the past and will do nothing  in the future. It is to get a man >vho  has the ability and force to do something for the riding that Ave support  Mr. Retallack. Not because he is a  government man, but because he is  a Slocan man; because he is a man of  influence, of force and poAver; a man  who is public spirited enough to devote his time as a legislator to the  advancement of the interests of his  constituency, and not in senseless  haranguing and Avild gesticulation  to the edification of our alien population. Because Mr. Retallack is such  a man he will be elected to represent  the Slocan riding at Victoria.  In his speech at NeAV Denver last  Aveek Mr. Green endeavored to make  capital for himself by producing affidavits from two Kaslo Avorkmen, claiming- that Mr. Retallack or his agents  had endeavored to coerce them into  A'oting for Retallack. The improbability of such a thing was proven ;tt the  meeting, a"d little attention Avas paid  to the slander.

From Kaslo the independent narrow-  gauge climbs  up .the mountains beside  the continuous  cascade of Kaslo creek,  and the road shows  the futility of map-  inakers  attempting  the outcropping of  district. < Somtimes  factory-cotton roof and split-cedar walls,  but the rule is greater permanence and a  tendency to congregate.    WhiteAvater is  not yet on the maps,  but it  has all the  elements of furture cityhood.  It is three  or four miles from Sandon, "the \Aray the  crow liies," proA'ided he Hies higher than  the mountain tops,  but the distance by  rail is about, 13   miles.   The town  provides for primitive Avants Avith a bakery,  a saw mill, a bath  house,  laundry and  general store.   It has a good hotel and a  growing   assortment    of    houses    and  shacks.    WhiteAvater is a result of the  mine from Avhich it gets its name and  ite  trade, a   mine claiming priority in  deep development Avork in  Slocan district.   It is claimed that the Whitewater  mine has   demonstrated   the wealth of  the  Slocan.   Even  such   mines as the  Payne at Sandon, Avhich is suspected of  having paid more in dividends than the  Le Roi, the Slocan Star with announced^  disbursements of $400,000, the Reco, the'  Idaho and others, are  virtually "grass-  root" Avorkings, stoping ores from  tunnels driven on the veins.   They have not  yet proA'ed the depth of the veins along  which they haAre been Avorking, but the  WhiteAvater has sunk a shaft sufficiently deep to prove the existence of a true  fissure vein.   This result of the first experiment in depth has naturally fortified  the hopes of all  mine and claim owners  in the Slocan, and every one is confident  that these   veins   which   have already  yielded Avell  are deep   and in a mining  sense  permanent.    Writing  Avhere  the  booming instinct is  as  inflammable as  giant powder,  Avhere the mildest suspicion of a rich strike is sufficient to cause  a rush and the sale of two or three town  sites, one hesitates about pronuncing" in  favor of the claims of any mine or district.     It   must   be   depressing   to   go  through the   world   weighted swith  tlie  remorse of   having   contributed in   any  way  toward  a boom.   To see a family  walking behind and scattered over the  top of a  freight   wagon containing their  doors,  windows,  chairs,  bedsteads and  other   temporal possessions,  to hear the  comments of the driver  when one of the  leaders or Avheelers  breaks  a  tug-chain  or whifiietree climbing a mountain ledge,  to know that what is  left of family and  furniture will be carted away again after  the   boom subsides,   is  sufficiently  distressing Avithout the added consciousness  of personal  responsibility.   The present  confidence of the Slocan district is due  to the deep development of the WhiteAvater  mine and the  restoration of the  price of sih'er.   There is also a favorable  reaction OAving to the fact that the drain  of  the   Klondike   rush   seems  to  have  spent itself.  j creek into a square  wooden flume, con-  | fining it   to   a   width of about  20 feet  | through the  business  part of the atten-  ! uated municipality.    The flume is cross-  {ed by timbers, which will be planked to  j form   the   roadbed   of Second   avenue.  j Some   day   Sandon   may have a Third  avenue, for a few yellow cedar   houses  looking like   pigeon-coops away  up on  the mountain side show it to  be by no  m^ans impossible.   The city has a good  electric   light   service, once interrupted  temporarily by a land slide, and a waterworks system,   with  pipes and hydrants  j capable of throwing five streams over its  I tallest building.   The work now in progress converting Carpenter creek into a  street will cost $15,000, but the taxpayers  do not murmur.    The greater part of the  city is owned by Mr. J. M. Harris, president and manager of the Reco Mining  Co., and his policy is  to rent, and  not  sell, he has evidently an unshaken faith  in the city's future.   It may not be out  of  place to   remark   that every city in  British  Columbia has a future of some  kind.    Among the novel enterprises Avith  which he is connected  is  the supplying  of steam for heating purposes, but the  supply is restricted to the leading buildings owned  by  himself,   including  the  Reco Hotel. The system adopted is to include the heating service in the property  leased.    The    electric   .light   is   run by  Avater-power, and  the  stream down the  gulch will be used next year to perfect  the seAverage  saystem.    Sandon   has  a  perpetual  variety  performance   of    *he  style   familiar   in   mining   camps,  and  seA'eral gambling establishments open to  the public.   These, according to the local  school   of    economic,   philosophy,    are  "good for the city,  as they keep money  in circulation."  This theory, everywhere  encountered in the west,  has no discoverable connection  with the  "balance of  trade" idea,  and  seems  to  be of  local  origin.   No doubt   it is founded on a  modified form  of  the French monarchical theory, and the man who holds that  an  institution  is   ''good for    the city"  adds,  unconsciously,  "The city,   that is  I."    Sandon has no Chinamen,  and the  few Avho have camped there have found  it advisable to act on a plain notice  to  quit.    In that  there is  consisteno.}', for  if the gambler, who does little and gets  much, should be encouraged, the Chinaman,   who   does   much and gets'little,  should be excluded from the camp.    In  most abnormal theories  there is a substratum of truth,   and   no   doubt   the  gambler, by   keeping  the   miner poor,  holds him  in the  camp and provides a  steady  trade for all lines depending on  his custom.  In the group of mines around Sandon  the    Payne is the chief  shipper, and  though its owners are reticent as to  results,  there are good   grounds for the  claim that it has yielded  profits greater  than the Le Roi.    There  is a crusher at  the mine, and the ore is brought down  a three-rail   gravity  long,  Avith a vertical  A car Avith  five tons  trip,   or   rather  the  drop,   in  eight minutes.   The  track  is  built on   trestles   for much  of the way,  but   there   are    several     snow     sheds  through   which  a  visitor ascending  in  an empty car must keep in his head,  as  there.is a danger of losing it.  The Slocan  Star mine, up the gulch  within  sight of  the  city,   has   a   concentrator  running  perpetually, with a  capacity of 200 tons  a   day.    It   has four  sets   of   grinding  rollers   and   an  intricate  succession  of  sluices,  grates,   screens   and  elevators,  all  black and  greasy  with  lead.     The  concentrator    is a  big   aggregation   of  machinery   and  is  run by water  piped  from   the   mountain   almost   overhead.  Up to last January this mine had paid in  dividends $400,000.   The Reco mine is  about two  miles from Sandon, but the  trail leading'   to  it  is  more than   four  miles long", or would  be so if straightened out.

Notice of  Poll  being Granted  Candidates Nominated.  and  tha  mountain   by  tramway 6,000 feet  drop of 2,500 feet,  of ore   makes the  Slocan Riding of West Kootenay Electoral District, To-wit���  PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given to the Electors of the Electoral District  aforesaid, that a Poll has become necessary at the Election now pending for the same, and that I have granted such Poll; and further, that the  persons duly nominated as candidates at the said Election, and for whom  only votes will be received, are:  A   CKOAVDKD   CITV.  From  Whitewater the   narrow-gauge  climbs over the divide, where the dense  cedars coating the mountains are still  deep in snow, and clambers cautiously  down the gulch to Sandon, a city wedged  into the bottom  of a funnel formed   by  surrounding   mountain   peaks.      These  peaks are from 9,000  to  7,000 feet high,  all comfortable clad  in cedar and with a  marked regularity in the conical outlines.  Though nature has been generous in the  diffusion of mineral wealth she has dealt  unkindly by Sandon  in  the matter of a  townsite.   The city has no choice but to  follow the tortuous gulch already preempted   by   the   waters   of   Carpenter  creek.   The mountains rise almost perpendicularly, and crowd in on the crooked street that constitutes the city,forcing  the opposite  sides  together till the projecting    sign-boards    interfere.      What  would happen if two wagons should meet  in Sandon is  a  problem   which has,   no  doubt, engaged the  attention   of   many  reflective minds.   To find a niche for a  shack in  the  rear of either side  would  necessitate a climb   of   about 300 feet,  and  a life  of   uneasiness   lest   the first  snow   or land slide   should   carry   the  shack through the roof of a residence on  the   lower   level.    These  perpendicular  suburbs  have many disadvantages.    It  would   be   most   embarrassing to   have  somebody's    summer    residence    with  lawn, arbor and well of good, pure water  dropping through   the   roof without premonitory   warning.     Blackstone    says  that a land  title  conveys  a pyramid  of  space with its apex  at the centre of the  earth, but if  he had lived in Sandon  lie  would have found  it convenient to draw  his lines  with a  clip into the mountain  side.   Each spring freshet, which, bythe-  way, occurs late in June, washes out the  sand and throws about the trees, stumps  and branches that have slipped into the  gulch with tlie earlier thaws,  and many  shackers are located, peaceful, confident  and apparently  happy,  on the bars and  tangled heaps of driftwood  left   by the  last   flood.      But   these   are   Sandon's  peculiarities, and tend to give an unfair  impression of a city which has defied the  crowding mountains   and   noisy  floods.  The crooked street along the gulch has  about 2,000 population,  and  theyjiave  just been assessed for taxes  on  $350,000  worth of property.   Where Slocan Star  Gulch rises from the main  gulch  there  is a partly level spot on which stands a  first-class hotel, and there  is plenty of  accommodation for transients.   The city  has determined to build a second street,  and to that end  has  walled Carpenter  extending SU0 feet along the lead of ore.  It   began   shipping   in   1894   and   has  smelted 1,(590 tons of ore, paying dividends aggregating ��287,500.   This mine  has    been ' rawhiding'    its     ore over  the    snow,    but    proposes     building  an aerial  tram  to  the Sandon station  during  the summer.   The   Idaho will  soon  start up its  concentrator  again.  Its record in dividend-paying has reached S'220,000.   There are   several  other  big mines in the immediate vicinity of  the city, employing from SO to 125 men,  and about a score   of   prospects being-  developed   with   from  10 to 15 hands.  Here as  elsewhere are found the ups  and downs of mining and the endless  story of too much  capital on paper and  not"enough   in   cash.     Sandon has a  working- brewery, and away down the  o'ttlch,   where   the   straggling   shacks  grow smaller and  finally disappear, a  neat,   comfortable   and" unpretentious  jail.     This   city  is {midway    between  Kootenay Lake" and Slocan Lake, two  long mountain fissures   of   navigable  water.   It is connected with the former  by the Kaslo & Slocan narrow-gauge,  and with the Slocan   and Arrow lakes'  by a link of the Canadian Pacific, having thus a choice of routes between the  Canadian and American systems.   This  is here regarded as an advantage worth  retaining.  At New Denver, on Slocan lake, there  is a revival of mining activity.   The  Molly  Hughes  mine, long famous for  the patient, lonely  industry of its owner,  who used to threaten all inquisitive  visitors, is being developed under bond  by an  English company, and about IS  men are at work.    This company operates in Europe also,   and  is working in  Servia a  silver-lead mine opened and  worked in the days  of the Roman occn-  )ation.    Experiments  witli tlie tailings  lave shown that   the  ancient   miners  were able to extract tlie small proportion of go'd carried  by the ore.    r\7ew  Uenver lias  room   to  .spread  and   has  done so.    The luxury  of a   level space  is rare in   Kootenay,   but here there  is  no    uncomfortable     crowding.       The  mountains have retreated away from  the lake, leaving an ideal townsite, but  even  with  a   central   location   in   tlie  Slocan it;', growth   has not come within  the usual distance of expections.    Tlie  town  is  widely    known    through   the  medium   of   The Lel��;k,   owned   and  edited by  Mr.  ]l. T. Lowery, who  has  established its reputation for originality  and local color.

As it runs from the faucet liquid air  looks like pure water. A cubic foot of  liquid air represents S00 feet of ordinary  air. Just as ice in melting, produces a  greater degree of cold than that which  produced it, so liquid air, in returning to  its atmospheric shape, produces a degree  of cold so intense as to be practically immeasurable. Approximately, it is 300  degrees below zero.  If it were possible to keep the liquid  air cold, Mr. Tripler says it would be  possible to keep indefinitely. He has  succeed in shipping the product as far as  Washington and Boston, but 36 hours is  about as long as the air will remain  liquid.  Mr. Tripler took a piece of heavy iron  gas pipe 10 inches long. Drawing a  single thread of cotton from a mass of  waste Mr. Tripler dipped the thread in  turpentine and then poured a little of  the liquid air over the saturated thread.  Instantly the thread became a rigid bar,  heavily coated with frost. He placed  the frozen thread inside the gas pipe,  and applied a fuse. The ends of both  tubes were open and there was nothing  to prevent the free escape of the force  developed, but the explosion which ensued splintered the gas pipe into needle  like pieces, pulverized the inch-thick  iron of the waterpipe, broke the laboratory windows, and shook the ground like  a blast.  Mr. Tripler said: "Liquid air furnishes the overthrow of all the present  standards of force and the introduction  of a new power of boundless possibilities.  If one of our battleships installed the  small plant necessary for the manufacture of liquid air and used the resultant  compressed air in conjunction with steam  the ship would be 'able to keep away  from the collier for the part of a year,  and its speed would be increased by at  least eight knots. It is for ordnance  experts to utilize it in projectiles and in  guns. Much of the time which elapses  between the shots of a great gun has to  be consumed iu cooling the piece. Liquid  air turns into an intensely cold, dry air.  A current of this driven by its own force  and delivered at any temperature could  be used instead, and" the gun cooled at  once."

It has been decided to postpone the  proposed reduction of savingsbank interest until the 1st of October. The  present unsettled condition of the money  market owing' to the Spanish-American  war, has brought about this postponement.

It is a deplorable fact that  many housekeepers supply the same <  kind of food on hot and cold days, or,  worse still, serve hot-weather food on  cold days, and cold-weather food on hot  days. The-result cannot but be uncomfortable and injurious.  ��� Dieting- is all-important in keeping-  cool; and yet many of our cooks and  teachers of the culinary art do not seem  to consider this fact in'the least. They  are so engrossed in making food taste  well and look well that this most important part of the household economics  is usually overlooked. For example,  in Juliet Corson''s "Familv Living on  S500 a Year," . a list of breakfasts for  midsummer is given. The following-  are some of the principal dishes served  for each breakfast: First, fried bacon,  fried succotash and fried potatoes;  second, fried ham, fried tomatoes, fried  hashed potatoes; third, scalloped blue-  fish, fried ((-egg plants, fried potatoes;  fourth, lamb chops, fried tomatoes, fried  potatoes; fifth, broiled bacon, fried  corn, fried potates, fried egg plant;  sixth, broiled beefsteak, fried beans,  fried potatoes. Such breakfasts, while  they might taste good, would be anything but healthful. Fried foods should  be nearly tabooed in hot weather. The  intense heat of summer is uncomfortable enough in itself, even with the use  of the most cooling' foods; but, when  you intensify the heat by using fatty  foods, the result must necessarily he  quite distressing. Fats mei ely generate  heat in the body, and so are particularly suitable for cold weather. What we  the heated season is food  all the nutrition necessary  and with just as little heat-producing  qualities as possible.  A man.with whom I am acquainted  insists upon eating pork chops and  buckwheat cakes for breakfast the year  round. He suffers from the heat intensely and is greatly troubled with  eruptions of the skin���a natural result.  By 'making* inquiries among the dealers  iii meat, Ifind that there is just as  much pork sold in summer as in winter.  Ham seems to be considered a summer  dish, for I notice that fried ham and  eggs and cold boiled ham are used a  great deal. Picnics are hardly complete without a liberal supply of ham  sandwiches. Now. pork is one of the  most heating of foods, and, therefore, if  eaten at all, it should be during the  cold weather. The lumbermen working in the forest during the winter eat  large quantities of fat pork and beans,  this combination furnishing a large  amount of heat and strength. Professor  Atwater tells of an item he read in a  paper   which   is   apropos:    "A   lot of  woodchoppers   worked for Mr. S ,  in H , stopped work the other.day  and sent a spokesman to their employer, who said the men were satisfied  with their wages anrl most other things,  but didn't like 'your fresh meat; that's  too fancy and ain't got strength into it.'  Mr. S������ gave them salt pork three  times a day, and neace at once resumed  its sway "."  But 1 am opposed to the use of pork.  Hogs are such dirty animals. They eat  anything, no matter how spoiled and  fermented, and the food eaten must  have its effect upon the flesh of the  animal. I really believe our dispositions in a great degree come from the  food we eat. But "the microscope and  many well-tested experiments show  that the fat of pork is very different  from the lean. It is really extract of  grease and contains no injurious elements; so 1 use fat pork occasionally on  my table. As a usual thing nervous  children do not eat enough fats, so I  think it permissible to give them a little  crisp fat bacon sometimes, for I find  they will eat fat in that form when they  will take it in no other excepting in  milk and butter.  Yellow corn meal and buckwheat are  also great heat-producers and should  only be used in cold 1 weather. White  or southern corn meal should take the  place of the yellow in warm weather,  for the white contains but one-half the  calorics or heat-giving elements of the  yellow. Fish, eggs in any form, some  of the cereals, fresh vegetables, fresh  fruit, salads, cold bouillon and simple  desserts furnish meals for hat days,  refreshing, nutritious and stimulating.  ���3IIXEBAL   FLOAT.  The United States ranks first in the  world as a silver producer.  The American output of copper for  1S97 was 215,500 tons or more than 60 per  cent, of all the copper produced in the  world.  Tlie gold production of Eastern Siberia  amounts to $15,000,000 annually, that of  Western Siberia $1,704,339, while the  Ural region, yields over $7,000,000 yearly.  There is no reason to believe that gold  is to be found in the Philippine Islands  in very.great quantities. If such were  the case, a study of the history of the  Spaniards would lead us to the conclusion that few natives would now be alive  to rebel, and what survived the cruelty  of this nation of gold hunters would be  delving in the mines. Spain never yet  left gold fields undeveloped in her possessions, and v.e opine that the Philippine Islands are not exceptions. ������  It is interesting to know that Cuba's  mineral exports have been from $3,000,-  000 to '$4,000,000 in values annually.  Magnetic and hematite iron is found in  abundance, particularly in the province  of Santiago de Cuba. Copper mines  have been worked there many years ago  by European capital, but owing to excessive export duties they were abandoned. There are also large deposits of  manganese and other minerals. The  exports of cattle, tobacco, coffee, sugar  and other agricultural products, amounted to $85,000,000 annually under normal  conditions.  It is claimed that the following simple  test for gold in ores is a reliable one, and  one which prospectors will value as practicable at times and in all places:  For gold in oxidized ores, pulverize  and place in a porcelain lined vessel or  tea cup, and cover with iodine and allow  it to stand for two or three hours Then  dip into it a piece of white filter paper,  dry and burn it and if it gives a purple  color, gold is present arid the deeper the  purple the richer the ore. For other  ores with this test, such as pyrites, the  ore must be roasted; where lime is present, the ore must be roasted twice, the  second time adding carbonate of ammonia. After roasting, test as with oxidized ores.       -    Gents' Furnishings, Ladies' and Children's Boots and Shoes are selling at cost  at Mrs. Merkley's.  "   ti. H.

The attempts made from time to time  to produce substitutes for coal,wood, etc.,  in'the form of solid petroleum for fuel,  have now assumed a more practical  character in an article produced by G.  H. Fullerton, of Los Angeles, Cal., which  is claimed to be free from the drawbacks  heretofore characterizing material of this  sort. By the use of certain chemicals  and a peculiar treatment of petroleum in  its crude state, he makes a black solid  mass, which in some forms breaks almost  with a fracture; it burns in the same  manner as coal burns, but without so  much smoke as is the case with ordinary  coal, costs at the present price of oil less  than $5 a ton, and may be depended on  to give out between two and three times  the heat units that the same weight of  coal will produce. The material may be  made into any form of brick, is much  cleaner than coal in handling, can be  stored in the sun without fusing or melting, and has little of the characteristic  petroleum odor.
