Snowslides are a common occurrence
in the Slocan. So are mudslides. Hut
when 500 pounds of bear meat come
tumbling down the mountain side, tearing a pathway through the underbrush,
with apparently only one object iu view*
and that to get to the bottom, the camp
risen above the common and enters the
list of the uncommon. Such au occurrence is reported from thoCapellf* camp,
Goat mountain. Monday evening a
rumbling, sweeping sound wan heard iu
the direction of a near-by path of a
anowsltdo. The boys of the camp in
vesttgntod to discover the eauao of the

weighing 500 pounds Where it started
from they failed to discover, and, an no
bullet holee were found in it, the tup*

The, Lardeau Eagle is a wide-awake
inining paper, and a credit to the division in which it is published. In a recent
number it concludes an article on the
possibilities and immensity of British
Columbia mineral resource!- thus:
"There are only two ways by which
a mining country can be opened up.
Lither capital must be attracted to do
the mining or the government must do
the mining themselves. Any government not sufficiently radical to adopt
tho latter policy, should carefully refrain
f-om dabbling in legislation, of which
that policy is the only logical conclusion.
"The foundation of the whole business is the prospector. He should be
left severely alone by the legislator and
regulation framer. His customs vary
according to conditions. Leave him to
hummer thein out for himself and make

Any legislation that touches its divi-

how to steer a course amid the rising

what U supposed to be an unbiased

Edward Williams, the Ottawa labor

any open r.tep in the matter beyond

into trouble at the mine. Yesterday a

■ £ Recent Developments Have Proven the Property
^ to be of Great Value.
''■■■ Recent developments on the Fisher
Maiden by the new company of Spokane
capitalists, represented by Messrs.
Greenwood and Watson, have demonstrated that this is, without doubt, one
of the biggest dry ore propositions yet
opened up on the Four Mile slope.
The Fisher Maiden is no new property. It figured in the shipping list of
Slocan properties as early as 1894*5,and
has always been looked upon as a good
thing. But financial difficulties, and
subsequent litigation in the courts, did
much to shatter the faith of moneyed
men in it, and for many months prior
to the new company taking hold it was
closed down and branded another failure. Early in 189). it was bonded to
Davenport and Hughes, Spokane peo-
parties faithfully worked the property,
and some 200 tons of ore was shipped by
Hujhes et al. Watson, in 18%, took
hold of it. He had faith in it,but lacked
financial support, and like iu the case
of the Arlington, he had to abandon it
But his faith was still strong. Watson
always said the Arlington would somo
day make a big mine, and his prediction
has been verified. His faith in the
Fisher Maiden has been as strong as
that in the Arlington, aud, while it can
hardly bo classed as a big mine ub yet,
it has certainly been proven to be the
maker of a great shipper.
Under the old management something
over 1000 feet of tunnel work was done.
Three openings were driven to tap the
vein and rich ore was encountered in
every  opening.   In   the lower of the
old workings a winze   was sunk a short
distance and  when  the property   was
closed down many, many months ago
the showbill of ore in the bottom of the
winze, whs something   like 12 inches iu
width     When work wiib resumed this
summer,  under   the management of J.
K. Clark ami foremanship of (ieo.Long.
the winze was   cleaned out and the ore J
exposed    Then   going *•*-*t* feet  down-
the Four Mile slope of the mountain,
work was pushed lo uncover the lead.
The wash was 'i'l feet deep, but  soon
the lead was struck.   It hits since been
exposed for about loo fuel, and is to
feet in width, carrying a '2-foot payshont
of ore that will average 'too ozs. silver
lo  the ton     About m) feet  beUm  llie
last surface cut here made a tunnel wa*
recently started through the wash, and
laat week the ledge was encountered
afU't* .Hi feet had been driven.   Hero
the payahoot waa oven wider than that
exposed above and prnv.-a.thn oro for a
depth of about mi feet from the highest

identical in character to that found in
the Arlington. These are dry ore properties, and promise quite as big things
as any of the big mines in that vicinity
when in the prospect stage.
Croft's pack train is engaged bringing down another carload of Capella ore.
to the Siding Station.
Four men came in from Nelson last
week to resume operations at the Bondholder.  Work wil! be pushed all winter.
Work is being steadily piiBhed on the
Emma group, Goat mountain, and the
property is developing very satisfactorily to the owners.
The road from the old Springer creek
road to the Republic mine will be 21,-
375 feet long, and will have 15 s witch -
backs, 2 brid.es and 12 culverts.
The Hartney mine has temporarily
closed down, during the absence of Chas.
Sandiford on a trip to the coast. The
force of 18 men came down the hill
Mondav evening.
The Washington has (50 tons of ore
sacked ready for shipment, which will
he sent out in a few days. A very important strike was made on this old
property last week.
Geo, Alexander has bonded the Fletcher group, at Whitewater, for 185,000,
lo per cent, of the purchase price being
paid down. The Fletcher Bros, and
Mr. Moulse are the owners.
The first payment on the Tamarac
bond—$11000— was made the past week.
The bond is for $l8,oC0 aud runs 13
months. Neil Gething, Geo Henderson and Con Fielding are the owners.
Supplies have been sent up to tho
Fourth of July group aulliciont for four
men until next spring, and it is the intention to push work all winter. Ten
tons of ore will he shipped before tho
snow conies, after which no further
shi'ptiients will ho made until March.
The total amount of oro shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan City mining
divisions for the year I'M) was, approximately, 85,000 tons Since January 1
to Sept. 28. Ifdll, the shipments havo
liecn as follows:

"\i the  many  valleys  lying  under
the rim ou the south.    ,
From the Colorado Kiver, more
than 100 miles'to the. northward,
the desert gradually rises in au
almost unbroken plain, until the
rim of the mountains is about 7000
feet above sea level. Mere it suddenly drops away, leaving innumerable deep, rocky canyons, which
are the homes of eouutless bears,
wolves and lions' in the fall and
winter months. In summer these
beasts nearly all go up on top of
the mountains to escape the heal
and to be near herds of deer and
turkeys that make their homes in
the broad, unbroken pine forests
which stretch for miles along the
almost Hat top of the mountain
The country to the South of tlie
rim forms the range for thousands
of cattle, the owners making their
homes among the canyons and foothills, wherever a sufficient water

f is probably not a region within the
confines of the United States where
men are more skillful in the use of
the six-shooter au'l the lariat than
hei;e. From the age of ten they
.fire as much at home in the saddle
as an Easterner in a rocking chair,
and boys, and girls, too, perform
astonishing feats <>f horsemanship
and roping.
Hook Ludsoif s two boys, Hugh,
aged IS, and Pierce, who is 14,had
an experience lately whioh illustrates well their hamliness with .the
rope and ability to take care of
themselves. The two boys were
working with the round-up in the
Xiteglin Canyon country, and started one morning to join another
round-up out lit tlmt was working
1/ about eight miles away. Their
course took thein down a steep
canyon for several miles and then
over a steep ridge ink) another
narrow valley.
About three.miles down tho canyon made an abrupt bend,the walls
being several hundred feet high.
As the I toys came around this bend
they ran almost into a large she-
boar, who was feasting on a freshly-
killed calf, Both had left camp
without buckling on their six-1
shooters ami belts of cart ridges, but
angered at the sight of the dead
calf both charged lit the bear, ropes

Jake Hendershott, a German
rancher, nearly 60 years old, was
going up a canyon close to the rim
one day last fall looking for outlaw
steers, when his dog started a female mountain lion and two half-
grown kittens from among the large
boulders. The lioness faced the
retreat of her young. The dog, a
cross between a bull and a mongrel
hound, closed in on the mother before she could escape.    Both kittens

So many stars are in the sky?
Why does the moon come out at night?
What makes the snow so very white?
Oh, tell me, papa, tell me quick.
Oh, tell me, papa, this one thin**-':
Why are the leaves all green in spring?
Why does the bark grow on the tree? *■
How did the salt get in the sea?
Oh, tell me, papa, tell me quick.
Oh, tell me, papa, if you know,
What makes the grass and flowers grow?
Why do we walk upon our feet?
And what has made the sugar sweet?
Oh, tell me, papa, tell me quick.
And tell me, papa, tell me how
The milk and cream get in the cow?
How many scales a fish has got?
What makes the heat so awful hot?
Oh, tell ine, papa, tell me quick
And tell me, papa, don't forget,
What is it makes the water wet?
What holds the sun up in the sky?
When you were bom, how old was I?

The Lardeau Eagle is greatly encouraged by the good showing that is being
made by properties thereabouts. It
says development is forging ahead and
good reports continue to come in from
every direction Preparations for the
raw-hiding season are now being made,
and Lardeauites have a good winter to
look forward to. The ore production
this winter will do much to attract outsiders for next year.
Another big strike of ore has been
discovered on the Ajax, one of the
claims on the Nettie L. group, some 800
feet above, the find made some weeks
ago while the claim was being surveyed
The possibilities of the Nettie L. group
seem to enlarge each week. The wagon
road to this mine is now Hearing completion, aud the force will be gradually
increased from now on.
The contractor, Sig Davis, and his
men are down from th3 Mountain Lion
group, having completed the 50-foot
tunnel. They have not struck the ore
body, but things are looking all right,
and instructions may be received this
week to continue work until the ore
body is tapped. A cabin has been built
and well provisioned, and Mr. Davis
thinks there would be no difficulty in
working therefor two months yet. The
same owners, the Mountain Lion Co.,
have made the first monthly payment

J. W. Livingston, of the Ruffled
Grouse.was in town on Sunday securing
supplies. He and his co-owners have
50 sacks of &KX) ore ready for the packers
but this amount will be more than
doubled before shipping.
Manager Chas W. McCrossau is expected to arrive here from Colorado
this week, and the Metropolitan may
then cease operations for the winter on
account of its location: but work on the
Black Warrior will bo pushed incessantly. The Warrior cabins are now
almost completed and a force of twelve
men will be at work by Monday next,
under the old owner of the property, T.
E. Home. Over 100 sacks of the proposed -20-ton ship iient are now ready
for shipment.
Ed Hillmau is building a cabin on

Andrew Ferguson left on Monday for
tlie Trail smelter with a second ship*
ment of 40 tons of Triune ore. With
the'2(J tons bcionglnt* to Che leasees of
last year this makes an output of 80
tons so far this senooii. The owners
hope to make another M-ton shipment
this season, and more if possible to
work at tlie mine
In Russia oil holds absolute sway.

An Austrian electrician has devised a
telephone which takes care of itself It

Tellurium was rirst obtained in 1782
from telluride of gold in the mines of
Transylvania.' It has not been used in
any form and is only interesting to
Mi'entific chemists and metallurgists.
It is very light and brittle, easily fused,
and so volatile that it burns if heated in
: lie air.
As an inptanceof the difficulty attending the making of surveys in Alaska,
Mr. FrancisTagliahue, of East Oakland,
has just made a survey of a strip only
200 feet long at Karluk, on Kadiak
island, which required a trip of 46 days
and an outlay of over $500.
Theoretically, there is no obstacle to
working mines 12,000 feet deep. Mines
5,000 feet deep are now oeing worked,
and the other 7,000 feet could,probably,
admit of a vertical shaft with intermediate landings and separate hoisting engines—a winze on a large scale, with,
of course, proper ventilation.
