Six sacks of ore were recently shipped from the Gray Eagle, near Three  Forks, to Pilot Bay. If the milling  test is as.expected the property will  be stocked in Spokane for. $100,000.  CRAWFORD BAV.  Wells Fargo Co. group will ship 5  tons of ore this fall. This rock carried  200 ounces in silver and 3 to 15 per  cent, in copper.  Twenty claims J have" been located  within the* past two months upon  Hooker, and Crawford creeks.  T. G. Procter advanced the raonev  to build- 24 miles of a trail in from  Crawford Bay,   and it is to be hoped  ,   The Nelson Tribune is in -receipt,  of a communication from a c(aim  owner in Slocan district lamenting  the fact that, the-government will hot  appropriate money tpt build -a trai 1 ��� u_r  the creek on which his" claim is locat-'  ed.    He says that the needed trail  would be from seven to eight miles  long and would cost fromik$103to|125.  a mile:  The cost is beyond the means  of himself and partners,   and they  are therefore unable to develop their  property.  He also says' they have ore  on the dump ready for shipment and  that they could easily ship 100 tons  during the winter.    If this is a state-  have  not any great capacity for business,  or they would at once contract to  have the trail built,   and pay for its  building out of the proceeds of ore  sales.  One hundred tons of ore would,  after paying all expenses, net $5,000.  The trail would be contracted for at  ��1,500.    This would .leave the claim-  owners   13,500 to  the   good.      But  rather than do a little hard rustling  they will sit down and wait for a  paternal government to care for them.  Such men are not likely to succeed  in this world, and they had better be  ma-king earnest preparations to take  up their sojourn in the next.  Another strike has  been made 6a  the Alpha.

That hard times are not wholly  unproductive ol good cannot ba denied, and this fact is prominently  brought out by Edward Atkinson  writing in the September Forum.  Although he writes of and for Americans, there is much in what he says  which will prove suggestive to those  living on this side of the international  boundary. The benefit of the recent  hard-times, writes Mr. Atkinson, has  been to expose the iniquity of many  undertakings of the second and third  class.   Whether   the   warning   will,  last beyond a few years is doubtful.  11 each generation will be found a  body of men of a plausable and to  some exte.nl; able, type whose moral  sense is obtuce, and who have no  sense of wrong in promoting these  speculative patent bubbles or inflated  "'industrials." as they are called;  while on the other hand, each gener-  tion, produces its proportion of those  who are ready to be fleeced in their  effort to make .something out of noth-  ihg.- Such dupes are very apt to be  decendants of men who have penuri-  ou 1/ and laboriously piled dp wealth,  but whose children/ " not shaving  been ;brought' under the healthy  a'iimulus of prospective necessity, and  for whom nothing else has been pro-  virtecl," lose the property with which  they have been charged. In many  c ises this method of distribution works  a benefit to the community. The  proierty passes from the hands of  tho.se who have proved to be incap  able of making good use of it, while  they themselves are sometimes de��-  ve-l >pcd into active and useful persons  undji* the pressure of the need of  working which they have brought  upon themselves in their effort to live  n profit male at tli3 cost of other  p jopl.'s losses. Hence the benefit of  aard times will presently be further  developed under this law, to the end  fiat those wno take over to them  scilve. the specifb title of the "working people " of this county will secure  tj their own use and enjoyment a  larger share of an increasing product  than they ever attained before; being  already in the enjoyment, of the  largest share of the most abundant  product as compared to all ether na-*  i.uns in the so called ci\ i ized world.

In a verv recent volume. Race and  Language, Prof. Andre Lefevre, of  Paris, has presented a critical studv  of the origin of languages, showing  in a masterly way how the evolution  , of tongues is related to the evolution  of man. Some of the statements with  reference to our own language are  exceedingly interesting, quoting, as  he does, statistics collected by different individuals, Turner among them.  The Saxon element has to some extent given place to the German and  the Latin in- our language,  and out  o of 1,000 words used, by King Alfred  orie-iifth are now obsolete. It hag  been shown by actual counting of  ' the words by j\I. Thommerel tliat out  of 43,000 words 30,000 come from the  , classical languages and 13,000 from  the German.,     .  b "Nov of those 30,000.' French or  Latin words," says Prof; ' Lefevre,  /'which are entirely Anglacized in  pronunciation, more than a third are  , but doubles of Saxon words. ' Hence  there, "is an infinite wealth of synonyms  that are applicable to the subtlest  variations of the same idea.. The  Teutonic1 element predominates in all  that relates, to t'be product of, nature,,  , minerals,--'- plants,- living animals, to  the structure of the'human body, to  temperature, to atmospherical pheno  mena, in the names of utens'ls, furniture and tools; All which marks the  relations  of words   ibo  each "other,  ���    articles,   prepositions, \ conjunctions,  , are Saxon: Politics, law, social functions, wealth, honors, philosophy, art,  science, trades, aiid eookiug, derive  their terms from .French and Latin.  Poetry uses Saxon words by preference, and this, it"is which renders it  so difficult for foreigners to under  stand ; there are two languages in  England, and he must know them  both who would read Shakespeare  and Byron.  ft D.

(Written specially for the Ledge.} ,y  In discuss n* the minerals 'of/ this  cainp one frequently hears the term  ruby sil verniade' use o�� the general  iinpressioh^ippea^ing'to be that every  spot of red mineral which is to bei  seen in. ;a rock' must "necessarily be  ruby silveiv-Jn iniiieraiogy^there are  t wo distinct > ores which are both r��  ���ferred to as red or riiby silver/ the  o.ie being known as dark ai>'d the  OJiier as light ruby silver ore.  \ .'���' '������������ -:;.Y.  '     '���  silver, whilst the dark ruby contains  only CO pej cent.  It occurs massive, disseminated or  crystallized in forms of the. rhombo-  hedron, a modification of the hexagonal   system.     In    color  it  varies  from black to a dark red and a very  important thing to notice in connection' with this mineral is that it gives  a  dark cochineal red streak  when  rubbed on a piece of hard quartz,  unlike brittle silver,  the streak of  which is iron black,  the same as its  color.   By this means the two minerals can be readily distinguished the  one from c he .other; frequently it is  very difficult   to  distinguish  them  i without this test.   It has a metallic  jlusftre, sometimes adamantine and a  ;specific gravity of 5:8. ,;   .  It is also, very soft and may easily  be scratched, with a knife.  Proiistjfte or light ruby silver ore  \i found; sparingly .in. one. or two  places, iii the Slocan, and is consequently a mineral of interest to us  all. It is com,po3ed of silver, arsenic  and sulphur as, we noted before,, the  silver amounting to.' 6&4 per cent, of  the whole, so that when, pure it is  slightly richer in silver than, the dark  ruby. It much resembles that mineral in all its physical properties^  crystallizing: similarly and being  frequently found associated with it.  It is however more easily recognizable from its distinguishing light  cochineal red color 'and is usuallv  found disseminated in grains through  quartz and other minerals. .  It is found principally in Saxony,  Bohemia, Spain, Mexico, Peru and  other places.  A native amalgam of silver, and  mercury, containing ^bout one-third  silver is found at certain localities, in  Spain, France a.nd Sweden. A  similar mineral known as arquerite  is, found in Chili, but in this, instance  it contains less silver than the ordinary amalgam and is only of local  interest. !; .;���  ' ������  Of- the remaining .ail ver ores the  Bromide and Iodide are of first importance to the miner. The existanee  of either in this country is very doubtful. A common error is to suppose  that a light blue stain iii any rock  indicates the presence of ."silver  bromide, in the majority "of cases this  stain is caused by a hydrated silicate-  of copper, but for the information of  those: who may think they have discovered silver bromide at ���anytime-1  will merely mention that it is usually  paritive  commercial   unimportance,,  precludes a further description.  SJ-OCAN CITY.  This is an excellent spot for duck  shooting. The best time for sportsmen to come is about the middle of  jnexc month. Ducks, geese, swan,  grouse, deer, bears and many other,  varitities of game are so plentiful that  a blind man could, shoot them. The  fishing is excellent and before long it  will be a famous resort for lovers of  hunting and fishing.
