of the experiments have been made
with the zinc-lead ores of the Broken
Hill mines, although the fasmania zinc-
lead and the South Wales copper-zinc
ores have also received attention. The
decline in metal prices has lent an incentive to the utilization of the zinc
values and a number oE processes have
been discovered which have added mil
lions of dollars to the value of these
properties, particularly the Broken Hill
Proprietory company'a mines Experiments with nil of the processes are be
carried an, the successful processes
being magnetic and etiemica' although
the chemical processes are reported to
be the most satisfactory. One
patents recently granted in this country
covered one of the processes which was
evolved at the Broken Hill mines. Ans.
tralia promises to become a heavy producer of zinc in the near future.
THE   HOjrB   PROMOTER.
Not so very long ago a gentleman of
1 our acquaintance bad 3 mining deal
on, and was expecting an investor from
tbe East who intended to examine the
property. The local man bad not come
in contact iwith. the particular species
described above, sajs the Leadville
Herald-Democrat, and' thought it the
proper thing to tell some of: his friends
about the arrival The first man he met
took him. 10 one eioe «-d inipiessively
breathed these words in bis ear:
'Son,*' said,he, "you hold your ton-
e about that eastern party coming
here if you want to get that deal
through. Take the advice of a philosopher, and do as I tell yoa. When you
team that your party is to arrive, meet
Mm at the depot, and don't let him out
ofyourstght until he leaves- Eat with
him, sleep with bim if neeessary; don't
let anyone else talk to him, ^unless you
certain you can trust the man he
talks to.
^hereare men who prowl around
ikiB£ just such fellows as your friend,
theinvester. If they can get next to
bim theyll blast your reputation, and,
after sowing the seeds of distrust, they
will seek to lead the man to look into
their schemes. Take my advise and be
wary."
Thisisnot a dream, but a true story.

tons of ore on the dump and experimental shipments to the Granby smelter

was early a bright star upon tbe
Buffalo, and Toronto press, but an
erratic thirst and a love of travel
drove     him     west,      where     he
wrote   "Wandering   Willie Water-
tank of Walla Walla, Wash.,'! and
other touching poems.   Ketchum was
a real humorist in more ways than
one, and once said that after death
he would need no funeral.   All that
would be necessary was to pour him
back in the barrel.   When the bloom
was on the Slocan boom he wandered
into our oflice at New Denver.   We
assayed him, and he went 400 ounces
in hope, 00 cents in money, and a
trace in beer.   He wanted to start a
paper in Sandon, so we gave him the
capital, and he rapidly rose to for
tune,   becoming  chief of police in
Nelson, and it is said that he only
made  one arrest in  nine months,
which is proof conclusive that Seneca
was a  humorist.    He resigned   his
position to become married.   Since
then he ran a  successful paper in
Sedro-Wooley ior many years, and
some think tbat such  a long resi.
dence in one place hastened his end.
Although  Alex, and Seneca   have

Victory.
When yon are forgotten or neglected, or purposely set at naught,
and you smile, inwardly glorying in
the insult—that is victory,
\Vhen your good is evil-spoken of,
your wishes are crossed, your taste
is offended, your advice ridiculed,
and you take it all in patieut, loving
silence—that is victory.
When you are content with simple
raiment, plain food, any climate, any
solitude, any interruption—that is
victory.
When you can stand face to face
with folly, extravagance, spiritual
insensibility, contradiction of sinners,
persecution, and endure it ail as
Jesus endured it—that is victory.
When you never care to reler to
yourself in conversation, nor seek
after commendation, when you can
truly love to be unknown—that is
victory.

tlie Pacific Coast Miner. Kingsbury,
who was a mining man as well as an
all-round sport, gave the money willingly, wishing to give Smith a
chance to redeem himself or to stop
the almost diurnal drain on his
finances. Smith started his game
and had a hot crowd in front of it,
and it was not long before the bank
was tapped.and broken. He wired to
Kingsbury, "Am broke. How shall
I act?" Kingsbury, without waiting
an instant, wired back, "Act natural,
you idiot."

It behooves us to be careful. Even

Kootenay is again prosperous and
Its inhabitants making money, with
the exception ofthe editors.
In thirty years all the timber

If the showings along Poplar creek

In Hamilton the price of beer has
gone up §1 n barrel, and thc editor
of the Spectator haa become so dry
that it is dangerous to go near him

With the rise in silver, the bonus

prosperous condition. If it docs not
soon reach that condition the fault
will lie with flic mine managers.

GEMS OF THOUGHT.
Through sexual love humanity
realizes its unity with the cosmos,
and becomes divine.—Ironicus.
Religion bids man endure, suffer,
have faith, and accept finally everything as from God, and thus is the
best friend ot oppression; liberty rises,
looks religion in the face, and not
knowing which to do first, laugh or
curse, ends by spitting on the idols
and bidding man ignore threats of
hell and hopes of paradise in favor of
attention to the things of this life.
Unattended to, religion gasps and
dies.
Nothing is really right, and nothing is really wrong; nothing is really
good or really bad—only as we consider thnt it is so, believe it to be so.
If people could only cliunge their belief, black to them would appear
white, and things old would appear
new once more. All tho qualities
of objects that attract our notico or
a fleet us iu any way have their seat
in our feelings or in our pcrceptlonn.
Wliut is high for ono man is low for
another, and plenty of people perceive no color where color exIstH In

The other day Secretary Hitchcock referred tiie following letter,
addressed to him, to the pension
bureau for consideration: "Befor the
the war there wasn't no man who
could a throwed me down or made
holler but now a goodish sized man
could blow me over, and I am so
nervous now I holler when I hear a
hog squeak in killing time or the

Not long ago a young college graduate gave the following as a toast to
competition at a college dinner given
in one of the small towns in New York
state:
"Here's to Competition, bright-eyed,
beautiful Competition, which though-it
is the life of trade does not forget to
become the dealh of humanity, Here's
to that wliich with the look of an angel
drives mankind to the devil, For we
see co-operation among tlie trusts and
big moguls of capitalism while Competition grows ever keener among the
workers for jobs on the outside.
"The keen-eyed spirit of Competition
controls the world of today far more
powerfully than anything else; and the
Golden Calf, unseen but potentially
felt, is the force which draws many
idolaters to its shrine. For every one
in the twentieth century age is grasping for but one thing from each other,
and love, home, friendship, patriotism
and all the old-fashioned virtues of
honorihrdeati"!^
thing is Gold.
"For it husbands become demons
and kill loving wives, wives* poison
husbands, children sacrifice parents
and parents make away wilh their offspring so that they can obtain some
petty pense from infantile insurance.
The profit-masters of the day working
through the power of the organized
trust sacrifices men, women and children in slave-pen, wage factory, sweatshop and mine, a vast number of wage
slaver, maimed or mutilated as victims
unto monstrous greed.
"For it many a weary worldling in
this wild satanic sphere of existence,
in his chase after the elusive dollar is
driven iusaneward, pushed over the
the precipice of the night into a realm
of riot and boisterous hilarity where
cowards crouch, maniacs laugh with
glee, and blithering idiots jabber and
make faces at each other; and madhouses plentifully increase in a world
of wild-eyed wickedness where llie insanity of competition is llie incentive
to a most powerful activity. Specialization is the thought ofthe hour; and
in the narrowness of an omnipotent
genius-embracing specialty insanity increases with due and proportional representation without anv undue piomin-  .

The great trouble is that only a few
persons in this world do any independent thinking, all  of their ideas  being
obtained from  others.    This is  partly
because they are not  taught  to think,
and this fact is now  being recognized
by some instructors.    .Most  of us  engage in  a  mental  process  which   we
imagine is  thinking, but  it is  only a
superficial  operation  unworthy   to  be
dignified by the  name.    If we really
reflected upon the various concerns of
life „we  should  long  ago have  instituted some radical reforms which would
have made this  world a  much   more
pleasant spot  than  it  now  is.    Take,
for example, the criminal element wliich
infests   larger cities.    In   New   York
there arc  fifty  thousand  persons  who
never earn an  honest dollar, but are
living at the expense of others.    These
criminals;  confidence' men,   swindlers
and frauds are well known to the police,
and  yel they are suffered to remain at
large, the authorities contenting themselves wilh trying to implicate them in
crime after it has been committed.    Il
costs New York  millions every year to
guard the people against   these human
wolves, and even at that they constantly
get  in  their work.    If the people had
been-taught to think they would  long-
ago  have seen  that  the better way is
to make this criminal  class impossible
by compelling it to earn its own living
—voluntarily,  if possible, but by force
if necessary.    I have read  that a thousand years or so ago, in one of the old-
world   kingdoms,    every   citizen   was
obliged to come forward once a year
and prove that he had been engaged in
honorable   occupation.      Suppose   we
adopt a rule like this, how long would
there  be a eriminal  class!    It would
simply be impossible for them to exist,
and we should thus save a large part of
the vast sum we now pay for  policeing
our cities.   Nor would such a law work
a hardship to the honest citizen, because
he would be known for what he is, and
his annual appearance would be merely
formal.    It would be the idle  and vicious only who would  be affected, and
this element would  rapidly disappear
under  an  inflexible  administration  of
_the_ statute.—We—cail-oursefves-a-civi!—

ized people, and yet we suffer ourselves
to be plundered every year of hundreds
of millions by a criminal class which we
might utterly exterminate in a brief
time. I do not doubt that in the remote past there were far higher civilizations than ours, for the plain truth is
that in many respects we are not far
removed from barbarism. Think of a
"civilized" people which last year spent
more than a billion dollars for liquor
and tobacco! Think also of a "civilized and christian" people paying tens
of thousands of dollars for the "pleasure" of seeing, Jeffries and Corbett
pound each other during ten rounds in
San Francisco on the 15th of this present month! "According to the official
count, 10,669 persons saw the contest.
The gross receipts amounted to $62,340.
Of this sum the fighters receive 70 per
cent., or $43,628, which was divided 75
per cent, to the winner and 25 per cent,
to the loser, Corbett's share being
$10,910."
We scorn the Mexican and the Spaniard because they encourage those horrible bull-lights, while we rush across
the continent to sec two human brutes
smash each other's faces! What phari-
sees and hypocrites we are, indeed.
And these are only a few of the ways
in which we are showing what savages
we really are in spite of our pretentions
of refinement.
Is it any wonder that such  a people
as this continues to cling  to the  monstrous superstitions handed down to us
by a shrewd and designing priesthood
which fares sumptuously at the expense
of  its   unlhinking   and    unreasoning
dupes?   Why,  the persons who take
stock in this so-called religious fraud do
not  even  take the  trouble to read the
b6bk upon which their alleged  faith is
founded.    If they did read it and considered   its   utterly  improbable   statements  they had  long ago  thrown  it
overboard, because it proves itself to be
a childish  fiction  of iio  more  weight
than the slory of Jack and  the  Beanstalk.    But they have not even  sense
enough to read it, all their information
concerning it being obtained from their
equally ignorant parents or from  the
priest who profits from  their stupidity
and  credulity.     And  if you   are  fool
enough-to-enlighten—them—upon—tlie
subject,   they would  kill  you if they
dared.—D. S Crandall.

Ought to Kiss Somebody.
A married couple riding in a Clinton
street car a few days ago had an experience which neither would care to
have repeated. Accompanying the
father and mother was their promising
daughter of four years. Becoming uneasy the youngster turned hor pretty
face toward Iter father and said, "Kiss
mama, will you, papa: kiss nice
ultima." The couple blushed and tried
to quiet the child, who naturally grew
more insistent,
"Not now, daughter," Ihe father replied; "wait until we get home."
Presently the child subsided into n
puzzled silence and climbed down from
her father's knee and staggered across
to the other side of the car. In a moment she had made the acquaintance
of a young woman who sat directly opposite.
"Papa, papa," called the little girl,
"Well, what is it ?" answered "pop,"
a little out of patience. "Will you kiss
this pretty lady ? She won't mind."-—

is pushed up every evening, and the
engine is then run "backwards to Three
Forks for the night. Engine 406 was
backing down about dusk on Tuesday
when something went wrong after the
safety switch had been passed, and the
engine ran away. The brakes would

Last week a number of mining: men,
members of the Silver-Lead miners
association, met at Nelson in connection
with association business A meeting
was held in the hoard of trade rooms
and resolutions were passed expressing
the thanks of the association to the dominion {joveininent for the bonus and
to Messts. Uetallack and Pratt for
their services therewith. Tbe only
other business transacted which the
association was willing to make public
was the appointment of a finance
committee composed ut S. S. Fowler, H.
B Alexander, James Crcnin, \V. E
Zwickey and \V, S. Jenkins
Several of tho mine managers present
were interviewed by the News and expressed themselves'freely on the out-
took in the Slocan camp.
A. C. Garde, of the Payne, stated that
in his opinion it wotila he next summer
before the Slocan really felt the effects
of the bonus, although in the meantime
there would be steadily returning prosperity.   If the Slocan could only   have
the chance of working on the eame basis
as the Coer  d'Aiene  mines  it  would

today they are getting $3.50 per hundred
for their lead, while today's  quotations
give us $1.41.   The mines here if they
•rot tliat price with a free market would
beat anything iu the world in  a  very
short time    We are doinp: all  wo can
to work and market our ores economically, and with this bonus should he able
to make a fair profit.   The mere  fact
that the government thinks enough  of
tho country to pay two  and oue half
millions of dollars to help the chief industry to surmount  the  artificial  obstacles in its way iB inspiring, and will
result in good in many more ways than
tho direct nnyiuu of tlie money to  this
section.   To us the bonus mean* 810 per
net ton of ore, more.   I wish,   however
that we c mid i-eo thein   show  a   little
more lif« in making arrangements  for
the distribution of the bounty.   I   sun
po>*.e nil good thlngH come   slowly,   but
still we ate all  anxious to know  how
the  bonus  will  be divided.   At  the
I'uyue mine we nre working fifty men,
with twenty-live more nt the mill    The
prospects both ut our mine aud   nt the
ncighming   properties   are  most   en-
courauing, Although  considering that
many of the properties  wliich  nre  re

WHAT   A   COL.U   18.
Prof. Lohnbcrg publishes nn essay on
cold in the head. He says an ordinary
cold is no individual complaint, hut
only a collective name for a InrRO number of different complaints.
He hays: "Tlie attempt to discover a
uni vei sal remedy against a cold is just
as absurd as to search for a generally
cilicacious remedy for headache " The
particular complaint of which Ihe cold
is tho hyniptom can only be ascertained
hv careful examination of the nasal
cavities and neighboring arts. Hence
sufferers should be circumspect in the
use of remedies
Tho professor says only that which is
true but of which the uiass of mankind
is ignorant. Colds are of innumerable
varieties, hut the most common one is
that which is persistently misunder-
i-tood It is attributed to anvtliing but
the right cause, which is a microbe
All its symptom^ are those of a highly
infectious fever, and the. public instead
of blaming the microbe of infection,
and striving to kill it, will persist in denouncing1 draughts, wet feet, low temperature, etc
They exclude air, the enemy of the
the microbe, from their rooms; they
supply a temperature in which it can
multiply, and, having become thoroughly inoculated by breathing the
germ-laden atmosphere, they find that
a cold current of air causes them to
shiver. The shivering of the ordinary
