Till  Mi-GJiiiNJi,  New Denver, the beautiful Lucerne  of America, is of slow growth. Since  its birth other towns have come into  existence in Kootenay, and become  adults while the town with the  most  magnificent   townsite   of  them   all, [ world.' and by which strangers judge  with millions of tons of rich ore in the  ence a chance to pray, pray, pray,  instead of wishing to rend the sanctified air with the stirring vocal sounds  of England's martial song.  In the House of Commons at Ottawa  the other day McMullen accused Sir  Charles Tupper of breaking all of the  ten commandments. The usual tirade  of words was indulged in by various  members and the affair ended without any bloodshed. Politics seem to  be coming to a pretty pass in Canada.  If the pistol was used as freely as it  is in Texas men would not use their  mouths so much, and the public would  not be bored with the long accounts  of boyish nonsense. >  The advertising columns of a newspaper are an index to the people by  which it is surrounded. If the paper  is well-filled with bright, large and  readable ads it is a sure sign that the  people are awake to the realities of  life. If. the reverse is the case it indicates that the people have lost hope  and ambition. That while physically  alive they are dead to the potent influence of an agency  that rules the  nwn-^r>rtfci��."��.Th.>Tiyii,>>.TT^ta^a>:  jb�� . *&t** y^m^\?tiBsvstrJ&  mountains around it, and surrounded  by scenery so grand tlutt some day  the world will rave over it/ has still  to wear the short pantaloons of com-  m ercial childhood. Why is this thus?  It is not the fault of Nature for the  Dame has been almost too kind to  New Denver, and its inhabitants  have cultivated the idea that,like the  wild rose, it will grow anyway, and  there is no use pushing it. This is  not so, as towns are made by men  and not by Nature.  If we would have a busy city here  upon the most beautiful location in  America we have got to dig, and dig  lively. We have got to MAKE it  grow, and this cannot be done by  day dreaming. If we would have  the Lucerne of America also rightly  called the Leadville of Slocan lake,  and the Helena of Canada, some tall  hustling has to be brought into action.  The supreme time has arrived. This  is the year in which New Denver  should commence to illuminate the  universe with the brightness of its  prosperity, but it has been so long in  the rut of inaction that it will have  to be shoved.  Reader, are you a shover? If so,  clasp the wheel ot enterprise with  your maulers and give us a boost.  Now! Shove, partner, shove, and  we will soon have this old town of  New Denver on the butte of prosperity, and the sun of good times hitting  it square in the face. Shove, partner,  shove, and let your pedal extremities  keep warm while the noble w^rk  progresses.  a town. In the end this spirit ruins  a section commercially, and brings  eternal rest.to its business men.  Tilli    DKlS'K    MANIA.  Scientific men have proved that  periodical alcoholism is a disease.  Thousands have' the disease well developed, and it breaks out on them  at certain intervals. Many of its  victims will remain sober for months,  and then a feeling comes over them  that they must have alcohol it they  wish to remain1 alive or keep sane.  It generally attacks the system when  the health of the victim is below par  or his mentality is excited or worried  over real or imaginary troubles. If  alcohol is not taken when one of these  periods come on the patient suffers  for weeks, but in most cases gradually  recovers, and if this course is continued the disease will  die   out in  about   two  years.      Every   time   a  sufferer from this trouble takes alco-: |  hoi into his system he becomes grad-14  uallj"   insane,   and   should   be   im- j |  mediately   locked   up for   his   ownjg  good  and   that of   the  community.' |  Men suffering from this dementia are !  daily robbed right here in Kootenay |  by people who think it  is perfectly i  honorable to take  the advantage of j  temporarily helpless people. j  This is an age of reform,   and re- j  cently   we  have   witnessed  a fight j  against a law framed for the benefit j  ot the toilers below the surface of the j  earth.    Why  not have a law that  will protect the human  race against  one of the greatest curses of the age,  the excessive use of alcoholic beverages.    Pass a law that will  compel  sobriety  to  increase,  and  the alcoholic mania, will gradually  cease to  exist. Dr. Keeley, recently deceased,  made a study ot people  who indulge jone by  Warman, written in Dawson  in periodical sprees,   and iinaliy con- | entitled, -"Turn that Picture to the  eluded that it   Avas a disease.

The larger fish swallow the smaller,  and the game runs back to such a  fine point that we often wonder where  , the smallest thing in creation gets its  rations. Probably it feeds upon the  souls of delinquent subscribers.  A firm of Winnipeg saddlers who  could not fill an order for military  saddles, complained to the Government because the order was filled in  the States. Dr.Borden gave the firm  a roast because they had locked out  their workmen for belonging to a  Union. A firm of this stripe does not  deserve business from any source, let  alone the government.  Some parsons are fond of stating  that God is all powerful and can do  anything. A skyologist of this kind  happened to make this remark at a  prayer meeting in Montana, A boy  in the audience doubted the statement, and asked the parson "If God  could make a yearling calf in a minute." The par.on could not reply,  and evidently thought that cow  camp youths want to know too much.  The other Sunday  in  one  of  Na-  nairno's churches the organist played  "Rule Britannia" while the collection  was being taken up.      A local paper  states that it was only by herculean  efforts  that   the  congregation  were  prevented from breaking out in song  to the rousing tune.    Why did they  not break ?   Is it any  worse  to sing  "Rule Britannia" in a church than to  play   it   on   an   organ?     Probably  while the collection   was being tak( n  up the organist should   have  played  Pay, Pay, Pay,  and  given the audi-j  t  Lucem  water varies but a few degrees from  summer to winter. Soundings have  been made and have proven the depth  of the lake to be from DUO to 1,300 feet.  Trout, salmon, charr and other varieties of fish abound, and fishing parties  go out almost daily from New Denver,  returning with good catches. The  mountains and canyons surrounding  the town are stocked with game of every  description, from the toothsome grouse  and rabbit to the stately elk and cariboo. There is no limit to the sportsman's opportunities of enjoyment.  But, sublime though be the scenery;  superb its location ;is a residential town,  New Denver is not dependent upon its  natural beauty for its life.     At its very I ^jINEs.   Kk.\l   Estate;  door, the town has mineral   wealth un-        "   ''' ' Ar  limited. Silver mountain, while yet in  its initial stage of development, promises to be one of the greatest producers  of galena ore in the Slocan. Situated  on this mountain, within an hour's walk  of New Denver, are several mines already working, and others will be in  operation shortly. The Mountain Chief,  which has shipped 8150,000 worth of ore,  will soon resume operations under new  management. The Marion, California,  Hartney and  Bosun-Fidelity.mines are  working" regularly, employing from 10  to 35 men each. The Bosun is a regular shipper.   This is the second year  of its operation.   On an  investment of  $7,500 the Bosun company  cleaned up  $60,000 the first year of its operation.  Adjoining these properties are numer  ous developing prospects,  which offer  great opportunities for  the investment  of capital.  Within tiie distance  of a. mile from  Silver mountain the silver-gold  belt is  encountered. On Goat mountain several properties are under development,  and two of them have made small ship-  of ore.    It is quite different  from  the  galena ores,   and   is of   much  higher  grade.    The galena or wet ore of Silver  mountain runs about $100 to  the  ton,  while all   the   ore shipped   from  Goat  mountain has brought from $-200 to $400 j  per ton. " i  New Denver is the natural residential point for the. mines within a radius i  of ten miles.    In  this radius are situ-1  ated   the   Payne,   Idaho.

Prejudice is a fog which obscures the  virtues of those we do not like.  See where a road ends before you take  it, and to what an action leads before you  begin it.  Avoid a slanderer as you would a scorpion ; both sting for the mere pleasure of  doing it.  Better make of every sorrow a stepping stone to higher, nobler thought and  deed, than to hang it against your heart  to weigh you down in the Slough of Dee-  pond.

Next to having S.1.;-JS above expenses  poverty is  the sweetest  heritage  that  can possibly be herited.  What is a poor man without poverty?  Ah. what?  There is no sadder sight in all the  spectacular scenes of this sphere than a  rich man surrounded by his loving relatives, who fret for his funeral.  For the poor the fresh air of heaven  and an appetite that coyly tempts them  to bite shingle nails. For the rich nothing but the misery of trussed terrapin  and marmalade macaroons.  Oh the horrors of marmalade maca  rooms!  Poverty is, indeed,a blessed heritage.  And so many of us are loaded plumb to  the hatches with the b. h. How happy  we should be.  Did you ever stop to think how cruel  it is that a rich man has to go through  the world without th�� blessed heritage  of poverty?  We who wallow selfishly in our own  b.h. seldom hare time to sigh for the  rich man who is permitted to sprinkle  salt on the tail of a blessed heritage.  Possibly we haven't time to sigh, because we are at that moment busily en  list whom he fondles and caresses, and  who regard him in the light of a lover.  He further adds that the clergyman  who makes "pastoral calls'" and has not  several women on his route with whom  he is on tender, affectionate terms, is  the exception.  . "'One of my patients���a married woman���has for me a more than tender  regard, which 1 fully reciprocate, and  this with the full knowledge and consent of her husband."  This doctor visits his fair patient almost daily and has for three years, and  between them are constantly passing-  personal letters and notes. This delicate, yet warm friendship, he regards  as natural, rig-ht, and holy, and the fact  that the woman has a legal husband,  really, he says, has no bearing- on the  case. He appeals to the Higher law.  The woman loves both men, but of  course in a different way and for different reasons.  Usually, when a woman begins to  love one man she hates another, for the  reason that she fears him and dreads ho  will do violence to herself or her newly  acquired friend.   And from fear to hate  1 am sure these rules are correct, for  I learned them when a colt from my  master, and surelv he knows what is  right. And does notman do as he would  be done by?  . "��� ' ��  When a man drops from sheer exhaustion or illness, promptly seize an  endboard or a cart stake and pound  him on the head or the ribs. 1 f this won't  recuperate him, kick him violently.  This treatment will restore him if persistently administered.  ��  ff a man finds a load too heavy for his  strength, knock him down and hammer him thoroughly with a club. This  will increase his power and he will  make no more fuss. But do not on any  account decrease his load. That would  look too much like common sense or  humanity, and he will'be likely to balk  again when overloaded.  Ply the whip frequently on a man  who is at work. No matter if he is doing- his best hi1- him often, lest he take  some comfort. If his load is light,oblige  him to go faster to make up for it.  Work, starve and abuse him enouj- h to  reduce man's average life one-half, as  is done with horses.  Put tight shoes on your man and  keep them there until he is lame. This  will make him thoroughly miserable,as  it does horses.  ��  Fasten your man's head in a strained  position, with his eyes up in the sun.  This will give him a line appearance  and prevent stumbling. Of course, he  will not be able to do as much work in  this fix, but it makes him wretched and  it is also stviish.  The characteristics of the famous  steel made in Damascus were hardness,  strength, great elasticity, and a beautiful variegated surface, flashing" with  prismatic colors at certain angles of the  light. The skill of the Damascenes in  the manufacture of steel became known  to Europe at the time of the crusades,  but the secrets of their process have  never been discovered. A mining en-  o-ineer of Russia, General Aanosoff, by  analysis and examination succeeded in  making- a steel of nearly as fine quality  as that of Damascus and scarcely distinguishable from it in appearance. He  had charge for a number of years of the  iron works at Zlatust, in the Ural  mountains, where he superintended the  manufacture of the. fine quality of steel,  it has been said that since the death of  General Aanosoff, in 1851, the works  have never produced such line steel as  that for which they had previously become celebrated.

"If the  proper ventilation of private houses,  and especially the places of business,  were insisted upon by their owners, we  should hear much less than we do of the  infectious forms of so-called colds." The  imperfect provision of ventilation in  churches is referred to in the same connection by The Hospital, which "con:  siders such buildings as hotbeds for  influenza on this account, and on account of the gathering together of persons whose power of resistance has been  diminished by recent illness or by other  circumstances."

There is one direction in which Canada has advanced   farther   than   any  other country  in the world.    We can  lick all creation in party politics. Here,  in Ontario,  political partisanship  has  reached its highest elevation, Gritism  and  Toryism  is the predominant element in every  county,  city, township  and school section. Gritism or Toryism  rule the roost.    It has reached such a  point of insanity that it is seriously affecting the temporal  interests  of the  people and the  prosperity of the country.   Great Britain looks upon Canada  as so decidedly off its head that British  emigrants will   not come here.    From  statistics just compiled by  the British  board of trade  we learn that the English, Scotch, and Irish emigrants going-  to British North  America in 18>)8 numbered   17,(540 and  during  1809   1(3,451.  Those of the same class going to  the  United States  in 1398 were 70,491, in  1899 they were 62,530.   In 1898 Australia received 10,(593 and  11,173 in  1899.  Only 16,151 British  emigrants  came to  Canada in 1899, and these were scattered over the enormous region lying between the  Atlantic and l'acific.    If the  people of Ontario would give as much  attention to improving  their own position as they  do to  improving the position of the political parties, they would  be very much   richer; if they joined together to .oppose  political   roguerv  as  earnestly as they do to oppose; for political   purposes   the   scarlet    woman   of  Ro'ne they would be much wiser.
