Says the special correspondent, of the
Inland Sentinel at 150 Mile House:
•"Parties from Clearwater district,
about *200 miles from the Forks of
Quesnel, have; returned from their
season's prospecting, and are very
jubilant at their luck, briuping# in
splendid results of their;finds This
locality, is in the same belt as tht; Horsefly. The route is via Quesnel Forks;
thence to Quesnel lake 100 miles long
to destination."
That i*. of course the route, used at
present, but a glance at the map will
convince anybody of thc. superioritv of
the Revelstoke mute by the Columbia
and Canoe, river waterway and thence
riyht along the great belt of the placer
strike between Cariboo and Big Bend
to Clearwater.
Speaking of the Revclsti-Uc route  to
the ne-v placer fields, an old time  mining  matt  and   resident  of  Revelstoke,
who probably knows North  Kootenay
and the Canoe river district as  well as
any man in  the  province,  said  to  the
Herald   that  the route by the Canoe
river to the head waters of the Clear
water   was   quite    practicable.     The
of the direction of the river at all.   But
at the crossing of the divide from Canoe
river   to  Tote  Jaime  Cache  on  the
Fraser, the. Canoe is seen coming in
from the northwest, where it heads up
in the same district as the Clearwater
,with as great a breadth and  volume of
■■water as it possesses at its  month.    It
come-, in round  the sleep and rugged
raiii-o which louns the divide between
the valleys of the Columbia and Canoe
river and the North Thompson, a range
which forms one of the roughest and
most ditlicult mountain sections in  the
province     Further south the range is
traversed by  au old   Indian   hunting
trail, which leaves the Columbia by the
valley of Malouey creek (called Nagle
creek ou the last published map) and
winds over thc. summit Into the valley
of tiie North Thompson.
The yield of oil in the Beaumont,
fields il'l Texas is something enormous,
says Grocers'Criterion. At the present
time there.-are 69 gushers, all under
control,'which, are yielding 1,490,000
barrels per day This flow of oil is
something wonderful in the history of
the petroleum business, as the yield is
restricted to a very small territory, 50
of the wells being on only 7J acres of
ground. The wells that have been sunk
yieldfrom 5,000 to 50.00C barrels pet-
day. It would seem that the source of
supply must soon be exhausted where
it is so heavily drained. Cue well,
which haR already produced over a
million barrels, is slightlv diminishing
in its flow. The great difficulty at the
present time is in taking care of the oil,
and great efforts are being made to
erect large storage tanks and to lay
lines for conducting it to available
points for shipment.
It has only been ten months since tbe
discovery of oil was made at Spindle-
ton, but two millions of dollars have
already been invested in tbe industry
there and fortunes will be made out of
it by. those who got in on the ground

'What is  Being Done  in Mining in Boundary,
Lardeau and Cariboo.
For the past week the ore treated at
the Granby smelter amounted to 4,724
tons, making a total of 201,539 tons to
Ore is now being hauled from the
Ruby mine at Boundary Falls to the
siding for shipment to the Greenwood
The lateBt in regard to the date of
when the Granby smelter will be ready
to increase the treatment, is that it
will be on oi about January 15th.
Development on the Golrlen Crown,
adjoining the Winnipeg, about 2jt miles
from Phoenix, is now in full swing with
a small force of men, which will be in-
xreaseiLa&^hev-cau-bojised—— —
day morning for the property to make
an inspection of the work, and will return in about ten davs.
The ore shipments from Boundary
mines for November are given as follows by the Phoenix Pioneer: Granby
mineB, 20,824; Mother Lode, 9,88(1; "B. C.
Ihine, 3,275; No. 7 mine, 00; Snowshoe,
"Cariboo," said a well-known mining
man, speaking of that .'part of the district near Barkerville, to the Ashcroft
Journal, "is on the eve of a big revival
in mining." There is ample warrant
for the statement in considering what
bas been accomplished during the last
few months. It is worthy of notice that
the gratifying results are mainly due
to the smaller hydraulic and drifting
mines.' The big undertaking's such as
Slough creek, Cariboo Goldfields and
Laird's mine on Willow river have
added   nothing  to  the   production  of
Cariboo this year. The returns came
principally from Burns creek, the Low
Quon claim on Lightning, the Thistle
gold mjne, Gus Langes' Dragon creek
mine, W. C. Fry on Hardscrabble,
Flynn   Bros,   on  Mosqucto creek, the

The gold production of the world,
according to director of the U. S. Mint*,
llobort's report, amounted to 12,457,287
ounces with n valuation of $257,514,700,
In 1900, which was over forty million
dollars le»s than tho returns of 1899
The loss is traceable to the great falling
off in production from tlio Transvaal
mines last year.   The comparison being:
1899,  t*7a,277,10G against $9,071,000 in
1900    The United States heads the list
of gold producing countries.   Tlie output from the countries producing tho
chief amounts aro as follows:
United States $79,101,000

The Greenwood smelter owners in
New York have signed a contract for
the treatment of the matte of that concern by tha new converter Hearing
completion at the Granby smelter ot
Grand Forks. .The matte shipments
from Greenwood will now average from
20 to 25 tons per day, which amount*
will be doubled in January.
Probably no mining property In the
Boundary has shown as much progress
in tho last two or three mouths as the
Snowshoe mino in this camp, as far as
surface improvements aro concerned
Not only has there been a large lot of
surface work done in tho way of stripping to got al the largo amount of de
composed oro which is known to exist
there, but new buildings have been put
up at a cost of many thousands of
dollars for the accommodation of the
men and ofllclals of tho Snowshoe Gold
and Copper mines, Ltd., owning the
Gulch  and  other  mines   working on
small scale.
The latest reports from the Horsefly
district give three feet of snow on tho

on the scene putting up shacks, nnd

A rather interesting motion will bo
heard in Bosslnnd by the chief justice
this week iu the case of the Star Mining
company vs. the Byron N. White company. Tlie defeudeiit company owns
and operates the famous Slocan Star
and Silversmith mining claims, near
Stindou. These claims were located
under what is called the ''old" Minora!
net, which gave the owner the right to
mine any lead outcropping on its ground,
For somo time the White company has
been working a vein at a |>oiut within
tlio side lines of the Heber and Habblt's
Paw claims which belong to thn plaintiff
company. The defendant claims that
this is a lead which outcrops in the
Silversmith claim and it Ik thereforo
within Its rights in mining It. It catoo
to tho knowledge of the plaintiff that
work was being done within its side
lines and therefore action was commenced (or $fr*VMi lor ore unlawfully
extracted from the vein which it claims.
The plaintiff aU<i contend* that a por*
phyry dyke cuts ott the continuity of
the vein and as il* cIhIiii* were lot-ate-d
under the "new" act, width gives St
everything within the aide line* of its
rlrtllllH, this both of oil' lil'lnng* tit it.

H fortune in a Dream
Michael McCaffrey, of Bangor,
N.Y., is the principal hi one of the
greatest psychological mysteries
that have ever confronted scientists
—one that has indeed utterly confounded them. The dream manifestations which led to a tentative
claim of 85,000,000 on the Bank of
I England are so at variance with
scientific classification, the repetition with which they , appeared so
logical, that even so high an authority as Professor Jas. H. Hyslop
of Columbia University owns himself* at a loss to advance the shadow
of an explanation.
In a dream a  British  soldier of
the colonial period appeared to Mc-
There was the same look, the same
attitude, the same words as in the
previous dreams. Michael then, for
the first time, was overcome by the
realization that there was ''something to it."
He went oir July 2 to the old
pine stump, which, by the way, is
the only one on the farm. On one
side was a depression, a sort of
cavity, such as is eomiiionly peculiar to stumps.
After digging two feet Michael
found three flat stones, two large
ones and a smaller one, about two
inches in diameter. Loosening
these he came upon a piece of paper

m'Oaffrey did as directed and
found a certificate on the Bank of
England, dated 1775, for £10,000,
with interest. Then the soldier
appeared to him again and told
him. to dig deeper. This time another certilieate, for £4,000, was
unearthed. Five times afterward
came ihe soldier and spoke to Mc-
CaiYrey, and so real was his presence that the dreamer began to
-doubt-that, he slept at all.
This paper was of bluish tint,
ruled, and was about eight inches
long by two and a half wide. It
was rather damp, but held together
firmly, it was straight, but apparently had been folded at one time,
and it seemed to be without any
trace of writing. Michael had
never seen anything like that style
of paper before.

As a final touch to his experiments, Professor Hyslop took  Mc
Caffrey to his house, 519 .West One
Hundred and Forty-ninth street,
New York, recently, and there repeatedly hypnotized him to discover if possible whether in that
condition, acting under suggestion,
he could reveal the supposed real
sources of his dreams.

r* The McCaffrey home is about
four miles from Bangor, N.Y.. near
the Canadian frontier. There on a
farm of 35 acres lived Michael,now
a man of 40, his mother, and a
brother and sister.
Though life lias not been roseate
\drfft this family,  any more than
with   millions   of   others   whose
legacy is hard work,the McCaffreys
have the'genuiiie touch of optimism.    Penury has put them to ex-

To  this 'unsophisticated   rustic
the*vision of a British soldier appealed in a dream one night,telling
Michael  to   dig   under  the   pine
stump,   where  he   would   lind a
paper.   Not only was this mode
distinct, but the sQldier expressly
ordered hint to dig there on July 2.
The soldier, according to Michael's
description, "looked like a middling
liked man who used  to  live at
Itrushton."    lie was smooth-faced
and whh dressed in a red jacket
and a big, iall hat, something like
those hand men wear at tho Fourth
of July celebration at Brushton.   I
had never seen anything like that
red  jacket,   and  he  wore  those
things (meaning epaulet*) on his
Hb^ulders.   No; I never had seen
any Kritialt uniform and had never
read any dowription of it
"I went right away when J got
up," Michael narrates, "and dug
two feet deeper. Right in the
about an inch in diameter and six
inches long. 1 couldn't dig well
there, as the subsoil seemed to
have been pressed together, and in
loosening the bottle I happened to
break it with my crowbar.
"I carried the broken bottle to
the house and took a paper out and
showed it to the folks. There was
writing on it, pretty faded, but I
could make it out to be a certificate
dated 1775 for IM,000 with interest
on the Bank of England. I knew
what the vl)' stood for from my
arithmetic lessons. Andrew, one
of my brothers, was working for
B. F. J. Jewett, whose son, Professor N. K. Jewett, was then at
home. He said to me, 'You had
better take it to the professor.' I
told Professor Jewett about my
dreams. He looked at both notes.
and after awhile said, Til keep
them in some dark place where
they won't fade.'
"Then he and his father hitched
up a home and buggy and came
down and examined the spot. The
professor took ft spade and dug till
be struck solid ground. His father
asked him what he did that for.
He said he did that to see if the
ground at the bottom was old, old
ground, and he said, -I have no
doubt of it. I am satisfied it has
been there for years.' "
Professor Jewett, who is connected with the High School at
Krodonia, and who interested I'm*
feasor Hyslop in the case, haa assured the latter that it waa evident
that the ground had not lieen dis-

boat passes through eight or ten

Let us do the most we can to
make the home a place where the
children shall grow helpful,natural,
happier, toward the noblest manhood and womanhood. Let us ..remember that it is the little things
that make up the atmosphere. The
kind word to the child, the little
fault-finding, the little nagging—
it is just these little tiny things
that make the comfort or discomfort of home.—Minot J. Savage.
If we compare the present with
the past, if we trace events at all
epochs to their causes, if we examine
the elements of human growth, wc
find that Nature has raised us to
what we are, not by provisional
expedients; and that the principle
which in one age effected, the advancement of a nation, in the next
age retard 1 the mental movement,
or even d< ;roved it altogether.—
Wimvood iAade.

India may be styled tho burial ground
of the precious metals For ages its
teeming population has been hoarding
gold and silver, only a portion of which
ever again comes into circulation. The
insecurity of tho country in past times
led its people to the almost universal
practico of burying their treasures for
safe keeping. A part of this has been
forgotten nnd is lost, on account of the
death or forcible removal of its owners.
Another part is hidden for fear of loss,
while the remainder is utilized iu the
usages of life It nevertheless rem<tiiiH
a fact, that India possesses in one way
and another * greater bulk of the pro-
clous metals and of gems and jewels
than any other country.
