SLOGAN'S    SCKNIC    ISKAPTV.  A New Orleans millionaire had engraved on his tombstone, a series of  uiixims which he had prescribed as the  rules for his guidance through life, and  to winch his success was mainly attributable:  Remember always that labor is one  of the conditions of existence.  Time is gold; throw not one minute  away, but place each one to account.  Do unto all men as you would be done  by.  Never think any matter so trifling as  not to deserve. notice-  Never give out that   which  does   not  first come in.  Let the  greatest  order  regulate  the  transactions of your life.  Study in the course of your life to do  the greatest amount of good.  Labor, then, to the last moment of  your existence.  One point that has been sadly neglected   in   sounding the greatness of the  Slocan to the wide, wide world, is  that  of its natural beauty and   feasibility  of  travel.    There   never   was   a   prettier  spot under the sun than the  vast  territory   surrounding'   the   Kootenay  and  Slocan   lakes     The mountain   scenery .  that can be  witnessed  as  one  takes a  trip over these lakes is  grand   beyond  description,     and   the    experience    of  traveling behind the iron horse through  the deep  mountain  gorges  and  along  the  brink   of   rocky   craigs   that   rise,  abruptly from thousands of feet  below,  is  something  that    Avould   attract   the  attention of tourists and bring them   by  the   hundreds  annually  on  a   tour  of  pleasure.    The comfort  of travel is as  great  here  as  on   the mainline.    The  accommodations by rail and water are  all  that  could  be   asked   for,   and   it  would require only a few days to make  the tr'p from Nelson, by rail  to  Slocan  lake, thence by steamer to New Denver.,  rail to Sandon and Kaslo and thence by  boat to Nelson.    Or one could take  the  train   from   New   Denver  to   Nakusp,  thence by boat over the beautiful Arrow  lake, and take the train  at  Arrowhead.  for the coast cities, after taking  in  the  luxuries provided at  the   Halcyon  Hot  Springs Sanitarium.    With a  little advertising these points could be impressed  upon the traveling  public  and  tourist  travel this way  would   be greatly  enlivened.  TKN    H.I5ALTH     COMMANDMENTS.  A    WISE    ANSWER.  A bright young' man of wealth and  social position, but with bad habits,  recently asked a young woman to be  his wife. Many girls would have felt  flattered, and would have accepted him  Her answer was sharp and decided :  "You say I. have  qualities you   wish  in the woman who is to  be  your  wife.  I  do  not  know  as to that.    But there  are habits I do not have, and   I  cannot  accept a husband who has them.    I   do  not smoke, nor swear,  nor  indulge  in  wine.    I   am   not  in   debt.    1   do   not  spend my days in idleness  or  walk inutile streets with silly, unthinking' girls, (  nor my nights with   questionable  a.sso-1  nates.

More  development work is going on now  than at any period in its history, and  shipments will be largely increased  when new stoping ground is opened up.

The excitement  resulting from rich   mineral  discoveries  and exaggerated stocking schemes has  gradually run out, and British Columbia  as a mining field is valued  at  its  true  worth.    This  is  sufficient.   Properties  that were prospects'a year ago are now  shipping mines.    Properties that   were  shipping mines and big dividend payers  two and three  years  ago,  are  heavier  shippers to-dav and are  paying'  larger  ' dividends.    Thus, slowly but surely, is  it being demonstrated that the mineral  belt in British   Columbia  is  something  that, while yet  only  opened   here  and  there, is of unknown extent and unlimited possibilities.    Every investment that  has been made has not, it is true,  been  successful, but this has been  due  more  to  the   inexperience and   folly  of  the  i investor than to the section.    While  it  is conceded that all mining investments  are more; or less, a game of chance, yet,  with proper care and the application of  the   usual   principles  of  business,  the  chances to be taken can  be  reduced to  such a low figure that it  is  doubtful   if  there is a safer field   for  investment in  the commercial world.  Particularly is this so in the Kootenay  district,  and  especially  in  the  Slocan  mining division.    In this division there  is  apparently  no  end  to  the  mineral  bearing ledges, nor  are  they  confined  to   any   particular  section.    We  have  mines producing galena ore situated in  all directions, and at all attitudes  from  ( the lake shore to the  highest  peaks  in  the   mountain   range.    The   oldest   of  these properties have not been  worked  to any great depth, yet they have paid  dividends amounting to several millions  and give promise of increasing*  production, as the ore bodies increase   in  size  as they go  down.    American, English,  French and Canadian capital is   largely  interested in the division, and company  promoters   are   looking   this   wa\   for  more properties in which to invest.    Up  to the present time,with few exceptions,  the American companies have  confined  themselves to developing prospects and  placing them on the market ai  a   hand  j  some figure when they were made   into j  shipping mines.

To ket  The following ten rules are being-  quoted by English medical journals.  1. Don't leave your rooms in the  morning with an empty stomach.  2. Never expose yourself to cold  air immediately after you have partaken of a warm liquid of any  kind.  3 Don't leave your abode in cold  weather without warm wraps around  your shoulders and breast.  4. Begin respiration in the cold by-  breathing through the nose. This  will give the air a chance to get warm  before reaching the lungs.  o. Never place your back near a  heated oven, nor against a wall, warm  or cold.  (i. Don't stand before an open window in a railway carriage, nor take  a drive in an open carriage, after  violent physical exercise.  7. Don't remain motionless in a cold  room, and do not stand in an open  space, on ice or snow.  8. Talk only when you must, for  the old phrase, "Speech is silver,  silence is .gold," holds good even in  'hygiene.  !>. Don't put dll your regular bath.  When the skin is not, kept, fresh and  soft the cold draws the pores together  and you are rendered susceptible fo  pulmonary troubles of all kinds.  l'��. Don't retire with cold or wet  feet.    Nothing prevents sleep with so  good margain . As a result, there is a  greater number of prospects being made  into mines in the Slocan to-day than at  any period in its history, and fewer  developed properties for sale. In fact,  it may safely be said, there, are none  for sale at anything like a close figure.  And just at this time it is developed  mines that capital is seeking, not prospects. In this particular is the Slocan  in an awkward predicament, having  many promising prospects for sale  but  1 machinery from rusting dissolve one ounce camphor in one. pound  melted lard: remove the scum: mix in  as much tine black lead as will give it  "an iron color": clean the machinery,  smear with the mixture; after twenty-  four hours rub off and polish with soft  cloth.

The most remarkable ultra-rich  man of the present day is Alfred Beit,  the South African diamond, magnate.  He is practically unknown. Yet,  though to-day only 4-0'years .old, he  has accumulated a fortune beside  which the dreams of the Arabian  Nights seem trivial. He is probably  the only living billionaire, and,  though unknown and unseen, his  power is felt all over South Africa  and the far east of Asia in a thousand  ways. The ordinary picture of aj  South African millionaire is that of'!  a loud-spoken, showy, ostentatious  man. Alfred Beit presents a coni-  r. a I plcte   contrast.- to   this.    In   simple,  is in fair health. He says he adopted  this spare, form of diet to cure indigestion, and after lie had tried it for  several years was so much benefited  that he determined to continue it.  He is a familiar figure at Pottstown  and is.sturdv and active. He took  his first ride in a trolley car recently.

"During the storming of San Juan  Hill," says Gov- Roosevelt, "I was  requested by one of my men to betake  myself to the very hot est region.  "There was a young fellow from  Arizona��� Rusby by name���who was  shot straight across the top of the  head. I happened to overtake him  and saw by the way the blood was  streaming down his face that he was  in no condition to stay in the front.  Riding up to his side I tapped him on  the arm and said, 'You go to the  rear.'  "Well, I never forgot the face that  fellow turned toward me," said the  Governor. "It was one mass of  blood, and this added horrible fierceness to the look he gave me.  " 'You go to h���-1,' he said, as he  struck out on a run up the hill.  "I couldn't forget such a fellow,  and I gut him a commission in the  regular army He is now in the  Philippines."  Liives on ()n�� Meal a  Day.  Rev. John J.
