The New Denver exhibit to the  Spokane industrial Exposition was  shipped to-day. the commit tee-men  Messrs. Avison and Vallance having  devoted several days to collecting the  ore samples. The display is the best  that has ever been sent from New  Denver, and if the other towns in the  Slocan do as well, this district will have  good reason to feel proud of its ore  exhibit. To the untiring' efforts of  Messrs. Avison and Vallance is due the,  success of the, undertaking.  The properties sending samples are  nearly all located within a mile or two  of New Denver. A few are located  elsewhere, but the owners reside here,  and as the ore has never been exhibited  they take this opportunity of showing  what they've got. ''"lie Goat mountain  properties sending samples, are the  Mollie Hughes and Turns. From Silver  mountain (he California, Marion, Hart-  ney. Merriinac. Sinfi.

B.,  and  is  enthusiastic about the wonderful   possibilities of the coining Pittsburg of Canada.    Since  the American   Steel Com  pany began  operations there,  Sydnes  has grown from a town of 1,500 inhabitants to a city of 2u,(.m0. and the  prediction is made that in less than   10 years  its population will have grown to 100,000.  One cannot realize the immense amount  of building that is going on there without  seeing   it.       The   Steel    Company   is  erecting   building's   of  stone  covering  acres of ground.    The   foundations  for  the walls are  wide  enough   to drive  a  team of horses over.    The  company  is  building 1.000 coke   ovens  foi"  its  own  use. and will soon enter into competition,  with the world in building steel vessels  and    great   steel   bridges,   guns,   etc.  Sydney has advantages that are  ahead  of any other steel works  in   the   world,  and the American  company  is  taking'  advantage of its great natural resources.  At present��� :LooC men are employed  by  the   company,   but   this  force  will   be  doubled in a short time.

Pilots   because  The outlook for white metal continues bright, and in ceinseeptence  tlie stock of several Slocan mines  has-advanced in price recently. .  'Without; printer's ink the world  would not know much. It is also  a- great cure forfinancial depression  when taken regularly in large  doses.  Nelson is one of the most progressive towns in the west. Its  citizens are. up-to-date' in everything, even to reading this paper  -regularly.  The C.P.R, has reduced the passenger fa>re in Manitoba to three  cents a mile. If the Government  owned the road the fare would be  less than a cent a mile.  There- are sea-  pilots,,   land   pilots.  sky pilots,   journalistic   pilots  and  Pontius Pilots. Most people are  They are, Pontius  they   haven't   the  mora! courage to be anything  else.  All Pontius Pilots arc?   moral   cowards.    To be a successful   Pontius  Pilot you must be. a coward. If  you are not a coward you can't be  a Pontius- Pilot. Pontius Pilots  think for themselves and act as  other people think. 'Whatever the  ragtai 1 -1 lobtaii-rabble de-man d. I 'on -  tins Pilots do. Any fool can be a-  Pontius Pilot. Sky pilots are sometimes Pontius   Pilots   at   heart,   so  and ol several assay ors. you may  safely conclude that the district is  an active one. that the prospectors  are interested, and that the professional   men   are   making  a  fair  Every one who has read history  knows that Rome was not built in  a day. Ages from now the new  people of the world will be reading  the same about New Denver.  The (.'row's Nest Coal Co. made  .847.000 during rhe past year. The  money went1-'into the pockets of  eastern capitalists instead of to the  people of B. C.. where legislators  are so adept at giving a.way the  country's assets.  From tlie delay evinced in the  building of the wagon road up  Silver mountain the Government  probably prefer doing that kind of  work when it is raining or snowing  -so that there will be no danger of  any of the men being sunstruck.  The sanitary law enforced in the  Slocan towns since 1807 does' not  seem to be entirely satisfaotorv.  although it is a. source of constant  expense to the people. The Government might take a- look into this  unseen ted but important subject.  are all other kinds of   pilots.     But  sea pilots are never land pilots, and  land pilots'are  never  journalistic  pilots.    To be a sea pilot you must  have some nautical   sense;   a- land  pilot needs nerve, a sky pilot faith  and  a   journalistic   pilot   money.  Without the  almighty   dollar   the  journalistic pilot will  die;   without  faith the sky pilot will go hungry;  without nerve tlie  land  pilot  will-  become   a   wreck,     and.    without  nautical   sense  tlie  sea  pilot  will  find a. watery grave.    Journalistic  pilots are born,   not  made,     Other  pilots  are   made,   not   born,    and  some   make   themselves.     Pontius;  Pilots grow.    You can shake them ' is at some little distance  from the bushes of  pride,   conceit,  avarice,  greed,   faint   heartedness.  Then' are baked  in   shallow   pans,  seasoned with cowardice to suit the  taste,   and   served   with   ignominy  on the side.    All pilots  sometimes  lose their bearings.    Sky pilots get  shunted oil' by bigotry, or fall   into  the  sump   of  sin;   sea   pilots  are  drawn away from   their  course by  false   signals;   land  pilots go down   men    and  in the fogs of despair, and journalistic pilots get lost when   the  flow  of milk and   honey,   cocktails  and  lucre, washes out the   trail.     Pontius Pilots never have any bearings  to lose.    Sky.pilots blaze the  trail  for the souls of men. land pilots foi  the feet,   journalistic pilots for the  head.      Pontius    Pilots- blaze   the  trail to hell.  The working of claims on tin  royalty or leasing system has proved  very successful in Colorado, and  there is no reason why the same  results could not lie obtained in the  Slocan and other parts of Kootenay.

If you Iind the .advertisement of a sampling   works,   or   of  parties   who   buy   ore.   it is a sure  proof.that a number of   the   mines  are   producing   with   considerable  regularity, and thai some of  them  are making money  sence of this testimony,   if  a-  railroad has been   built   to   the   town  the same conclusion may safely   h<  drawn.     If the paper  contains the  advertisement    of    one     or    more  banks, the 'prosperity  of the  place  may be. considered   certain.     It   is  then   only   necessary  to   ascertain  whether it is what the miner  calls  a "One Mine Camp'   or otherwise.  One 'mine  camps  are  settlements  around a mine which has proved to  be   pre-eminently   profitable.      in  such places the mine generally owns  the principal stores and the  bank.  is interested in all the public utilities such as water, light  and  telephone plants, and does not encourage the coming  of   outsiders:   and  outsiders will often do well to stay  away from such   districts,   for   the  proper place to search for a- bonanza  from   one  already discovered.  ���-Usually the local weekly publication will, to the careful observer,  tell   a   plain   story.     Tf  the   signs  mentioned are found, open   correspondence with an assayer and  surveyor, enclosing a cash fee  of  say  810 in your  letter,   and   ask   their  professional view on   the  locality.  These people are generally  gentlemen   of   honor.    Often  they are college  graduates.    Their  Opinions are worth   having.     A.ftei  obtaining them,  if the  outlook   is  favorable, subscribe1   for  the  local  paper and also the  weekly   mining  journal of the,  nearest  large  commercial centre.    Study  both   carefully as they come along,   and   explore  the  advertising  columns   of  the latter for  the  names  and  addresses   of   mining   engineers   who  make it a. business  to   report, and  examine   mines.

I carried a  man of tlie mine, and every ten feet I  had the, miners take, out about .150  pounds of ore, which was thrown on an  iron plate, 4x5 feet, previously swept  and carefully cleaned The ore was  piled Tip into a cone and quartered The  diagonal quarters were, taken, and these  in turn coned and diagonal quarters  taken, until 1 had about a pound of ere  thoroughly representative of eaeh ten  feet of the, mine.

The   Lost Bonanza is another  which  produced 12,000 pounds of mica  in  one  year.    The Oom Paul, New York,Crown  Hill, Monarch  and  several  others are  being bonded   to   the   Monarch   Mica  Company .and mica is being now shipped  in carload lots to Chicago,   where  it  is  sorted     Only about 7 per cent,  will  be  large enough  to   work  up into stove  J glass.

By a new process,these  small pieces are separated  into  leaves,  cut   evenly,   and   are  then   laid   into  blocks, being cemented together with a  transparent glue.    By this piocess, aiiy  size block is made.    This class of work  is used   almost entirely   for electrical  purposes.   The fine mica   is used  for  various purposes���principally for lubricators  and   for   packing   in   electrical  works.   The supply of mica in  Custer  County is  practically , unlimited.    The  reason that the  mines  have not  been  worker! before is that the mica industry  ' is in the hands of a trust.

Boer soldier does not know how to click  his heels together, turn his  toes  to  an  ,   acute angle, stiffen his back, and salute  . every time, an oflicer runs against  him.  He could not properly perform  any  of  the  very  simplest   military  evolutions  common to all European soldiers  if  his  immortal welfare depended on it.    That'  is why he is such a  failure as an  attacking agent     Still, in spite of these  things, the. Boer on  commando  has  to  submit to very rigid laws.   The penalty  for outrage, or attempted outrage, on a  woman is instant death   on  conviction,  no matter what the woman's nationality  may be      for sleeping on   sentry  duty  the punishment is unique;   it  is a punishment born of  long  dwelling   in   the.  wilderness..    It is of such a nature  that  no man who has once  undergone  if   is  calculated ever to forget.  When a clear  case is made out against a   burgher   by  trial before his commandant, the  whole  commando in   laager is  summoned   to  witness the  criminal's  reward.    He  is  taken out   beyond   the   lines to   a   spot  where the ^nn shines  in   all   its  unprotected fierceness.

His  rifle is  placed   in   his  hands,   the  butt  resting  between   his  toes,  the  muzzle,  clasped in both   hands.    Two  men  are  told off to watch him.

They  have their loade.d manners with them,  and their orders are, if the prisoner lifts  a leg, to put a bullet into it: if he lifts  an arm, a bullet goes into that defaulting member: if he.jumps down from his  l^crch altogether leaden messengers  sent from both rifles cancel all his  earthly obligations. The sun shines  down in savage mockery: it strikes  upon the bare neck of the quivering  wretch who dare not. lift a hand to shift  his hat to cover the blistering skin. It  strikes in his eyes, and burns his lips  until they swell and feel like bursting.  The barrel of his riile grows hotter ami  hotter until his-fingers feel as if glued  to a gridiron.

nssuine the responsibility of a husband
in fact, he can make a bargain and
marry the girl by individual contract
with her parents for any term agreed
upon, ft is often for four years: sometimes for fourteen years. Foreigners
in the country districts have often
married Mexican girls by individual
contract with the girl and her relatives
for two years.
These unions can be terminated at
any time by mutual consent of the
parties, including the girl's parents, but
this is not obtained until another man
is found willing to take the discarded
wife and be responsible to society for
her support and keep her from becoming a common waif. The second husband pays the first one a sum of money
to relinquish his rights. If the woman
is young and good looking it may be
S-20, if she is older it will be 815, §1.0 eleven less, but always with her consent,
and such a bargain is solid.
The law in Mexico cannot interfere
with people simply for cohabitating together. The right, to cohabit is fully
recognized. Only such modes of clandestine cohabitation as usually cause
scandal and provoke conllict,—as by a
married man introducing another
woman than his wife into his home and
bed, or a married woman meeting a
lover,—are contrary to law Thesexee
are not exactly on a level. The cohabiting pairs must conform to the general
rule of decorum which applies to married people. Theirs is simply limited
marriage. The children belong to the
mother at the end of the term for which
the pair cohabited. They as a rule
take their mother's family name as,
indeed, do most Mexicans even if born
in marriage.
Mexican law makes  this  distinction
between  man  and   woman.      A  man,
whet-hei .single, or  married,   is  quite at j
liberty to have a mistress  or a number j
of mistresses.     A   woman   is  quite  atj
liberty to have one lover at a, time, .hut-
not to have a number  of lovers at the
same time, unless she ;s prepared to go
under police  surveillance, and take out
a license.    The married  man's amours
must be at other places than his marital
home     He can keep different women at
different homes.
The law gives judk-ial separation, hut
no divorce. It gives the husband everything short of divorce for conjugal infidelity in the wife, but it considers conjugal infidelity in the husband natural,
and a cruelty only when practiced under circumstances interfering with the
wife's dignity in her home. She has no
business to know all that her Husband
does. lie has a perfect right to know
all that she does.
inducements as are offered anywhere
on Kootenay Lake and nowhere are
there more delightfully secluded places
than can be found here. And it is to
give visitors the opportunity of seeing
all this, under hiost pleasant conditions,
that the C P. R. has caused to be built
this house boat. It is to be rented to
partiss and at a figure which makes it
within the reach of everyone who can
afford an outing. The boat itself will
rent at $5 per day, with a minimum
charge of $20. It will be towed to any
point that can be reached from Nelson
at the regular towage charge of 50 cents
a mile, with a minimum towage charge
of $5.. All that those who rent the boat
have to'do, is to stock it with eatables
and drinkables. Nothing else is required by them unless they desire a
servant, and this the C. P. It. officials
will undertake to secure for them.
The intelligent compositor who got
his "u's'' and "e's'' mixed lately in the.
Nelson paper, had to "hit the road.''
Which reminds us that intelligence, is
often misplaced anil seldom appreciated
when cents are made into anything else
but dollars.

The new C. P. H. house hoat. which is
now completed and ready for occupation
has been visited by a laro-e  number  of
Xelson people, all of whom declare it to
he an ideal outing home.    The  boat  is
completely furnished in every   respect.
The four state  rooms  with   their, four
douolc   and   four    single   berths    are
equipped   with  everything' one  would
desire in a bed room at  home,    in  the
dining' room is all that  a   dining  room
requires,   silverware,   g'lassware,   etc ,
and the room itself is sufficiently  large
to accommodate any  party  that  could
travel   on   the   boat.    The   kitchen  is
complete,   too,   and   in   fact   there   is
nothing'lacking anywhere.    All of the.
rooms are carpeted and the  hallway  is
laid with oilcloth.    Upstairs you are in
the open air, with an awning- to  shield
you from the sun and a hammock if you
lay down and read and rest.    No  more
delightful  place,  to  spend  a  week  or
two, could   be  imagined,   provided.   o;
course, the boat  is  anchored   in  some
one of  the  thousand  beauty   spots  of
'Kootenay Lake.    Nowhere, perhaps, in
