and a clear rivulet >'hich ran at their
foot, did not tend so much to give light
to the workmen as to render this abode
more magnificent than the palace of
Pluto. Mon. of all countries are to be
seen in these galleries; some draw carriages, others roll stones, and others
are tearing the rocks asunder. There
is a town below, a town containing
houses, taverns, stables, horses, etc.,
and what is. very remarkable there is a
mill in the bottom of this gulf, which
raises the water Jout of the mine.
The first stones taken out of the mine
are dried in a furnace which burns very
slowly, and which separates the antimony '■ arsenic and sulphur from the
stone, and the lead andlisilver ^remain
together. The operation is followed by
another in]which the dried^stones are
thrown into triangles, and piled on each
other to be pulverized by large hammers, set in motion by water. The
pounded ore is kept in a stream of
water which runs constantly over a
large clean cloth placed in a sloping position, by this means all the thick and
earthy matter is carried off, while tho
lead and silver remain at the bottom.
It is afterwards removed and thrown
again into a furnace, which separates
the silver from tho lead; the last is converted into scum.

Tho traveler, Reynard, gives us the

"   NYfilltTtEelnnc tonnage onuirneatF
ville camp has been steadily increasing,
it is interesting to know that the grade
of tho ore has not been held up to tho
standard which was established when
the (Kansas zinc smelters discovered
that tbey could handle these ores successfully.   Then tho purchasing basis
was placed at 45 per cent., with a premium of $1 per unit (or per cent) and
with a corresponding penalty for ores
running loss  than   the   basic   assay
value.    It  has  developed during the
past few  months  that tho Leadville
shippers could not hold up to that basis
and now the basis has fallen as low as
115 per cent.   However, the lowering of
of tho grade of the oro has not resulted
iu a corresponding loss to the zinc producers, as the increasing price of spelter has brought np tho prices paid by
thc smelters,   It is reported on good
authority that thero is little zinc now
being  shipped from Leadville  which
will assay moro than -10 per cont, the
larger portion oi  tho  tonnage being
close to !!5 per cent,   This fact, how-
over, shows that the smelters can handle
low-grade zinc ores at a profit and it
can lie statoti positively that had not
tho Biuelters been able to utilize those
ores,  there would have been such  a
shortage i<)f spelter production in tho
United States that the price would havo
been grtatly in excess of that now being

Talking about the Mollie Gibson
wagon road, tin' News rliould reuicur
her that it costs less to clear a path f<»r

lested. This is plainly seen in the
career of John Houston. He belongs
to the class of men who havo built up
the great West Always ready to light
with his pen for, the betterment of tho
community against those who, filled
with greed, would sacrifice th-j many
for the enrichment of the few, he has
drawn upon himself tha spite of those
who spew their venom as :i skunk does
its perfume. Tread in a jungle ilillod
with reptiles and every snake and Hz-
zard will heave, its dirty little spit at
you. Houston is a man who does not
call a spado an agricultural implement.
He does not hide behind a white shirt,
studded by diamonds, a heart that is
rotten with deceit, and filled with the
venom of dishonest actions. He fights
in the open with his face to tlie foe, and
it is quite natural for his enemies to
pour abuse over him. It runs from
them like juice from a squashed pumpkin. The country needs more men
like Houston in its legislative assembly.
It matters little about the party to which
they cling. Give us a legislature composed of men who have courage, energy
and determination, and British Columbia will be the moat prosperous country
on earth.   A western country needs all

ran the city of Vancouver against a
hard job. The council of that city
will enforce the vagrancy act with a
view of drawing the demi-monde oft'
Dupont street, and eventually out of
the city. Under the present condition of society in our so-called civilization the attempt will be a failure.
Instead of one boil Vancouver will
now have hundreds of pimples. In
order to cure so-called evils the cause
must be removed, Reformers like
MacBeth must do something to cam
their fat salaries, hence the flowers
of a plant are scattered while tho
roots remain. The social evil can
never be stamped out until the false
ideas are obliterated tlmt the church
has propugated in reference to the
social, sexual and economic standing
of women. Women must be absolutely free before this world will
grow better. The laws and sentiment lostered by the church are
mainly responsible for the existence
of such places as Dupont Htreet in
Vancouver. This on the surface
may seem like a wild statement uttered in hatred, but we stand ready
to convince all persons, capable of
thinking, that it is absolutely true.
Our tiKxlern civilization, guided i»y
the false teaching* of creed manipulator*, drags its women lower and
treats thein more cruelly than the
barbarous of any age. l.'ntll we become regenerated and cut the best
link in the female chain of slavery,
persona like MacBeth might as well
suve their wind until their brain
pans expand and become capable of
seeing the real path towards the jxt-

The condition of the streets in

lack of public spirit, on the part of

A rich man lived in a small town
in Missouri and each Sabbath day he
was to be seen in his cushioned pew
in the fashionable church of the
town. Just on the edge of town he
owned a valuable tract of land, set
out in the choicest fruit and shrubbery.
There also lived in that town another man about the age of the first,
but very poor. Botn were very old.
They had known each other for
many years, in which time the poor
man had been wealthy, but security
debts and his unfailing confidence in
Cod nnd his fellow man had made
him tho dupe of designing pretended
friends and ho lost his wealth and
found himself compelled to do menial
labor to procure the necessities of
life. But his tastes had grown simple
as were those of his aged wife and
they got along with little.
One day the rich man wanted some
post holes dug on his pluco and at
onco thought of his old friend and t'>
him sent word ho had work for him.
The ui.l man came, wm told what
to do and sot to work digging. It
was hard work for a young,
strong mini, but work was scarce
anil had been for a long time; his
family was out of food and he felt that
he must work. Oltcn ho rested his
old back. Ills morning -nieal had
been scant, and when noon came lie
throw himself in the shade within
sight of the big houuo of his friend
and rested. The rich man drove
lionii! lor his noonday meal, but before going lu ho would inspect the
work, m Ins was paying by tho day.

Killed by Four.
Although I was on the plains when
buffaloes were there by the hundreds
of thousands, said an old-time locomotive engineer, I never killed but
one, and I didn't mean to do that.
The experience happened during the
year in which the Santa Fe railroad
was opened up through Kansas, and
the engineer's story is a part of an
interview which he had with a
writer for the New York Sun: One
day my train was held up not far
from Dodge City, Kansas, by a great
herd of buffaloes that were traveling
south. I ran as near to the herd as
I could get, and then stopped to wait
until it passed, for I might as well
have dashed my engine against a
stone wall as tried to force a way
through that living mass.
Of the buffaloes that could see us—
those on the edge ot the herd-only
one seemed to be disturbed by our
intrusion on that vast prairie, and
this was an enormous bull. He actually towered head and shoulders
above his fellows. He was near the
head of the column, and left the ranks
when he stepped upon the railroad.
He advanced toward the locomotive
untii*he"was~"a"~few~ yards- irom~ltr
Then, with nose to the ground, he
pawed the dirt and bellowed and
snorted, showing every disposition to
resist our coming into lm domain.
As he stood there in the middle of
the track in challenging attitude, I
pulled my whistle valve wide open.
Such a wild, piercing, hair-raising
shriek as the locomotive let go had
never split the air in thai far western
country before. It struck tlie great
bull with such terror that he rose on
his hind feet as if he had been shot
up by a blast. An instant he stood
like a falling tree, and came down in
a heap across the track, making
everything tremble. He was dead,
literally frightened to death by the
shriek of the locomotive whistle,
Taking No Chances.
As the collin containing the a flee -
tionale wife of a «.orrowing husband
was being conveyed to the churchyard
in a certain country parish in the south
of Scotland it accidently struck against,
the corner ol" a wall, in consequence of
which circumstance the deceased was
aroused from a trance and lived for
several years. When the poor woman
really died a few years afterward,'in
the act of passing the same spot the
husband anxiously exclaimed to the
bearers of the collin: "Talc'tent (care)
of the corner this time."

As illustrating the advantage of obtaining all possible knowledge in regard to one's business, the following
good story is told:
In the time of our greatest business
depression in 1893, the owner of a large
woolen mill, which was run without
the employment of a chemist, saw that
it was necessary to manufacture more
cheaply in order to do a profitable business. He decided to investigate his
waste products, and had a sample of a
liquid obtained in treating indigo-dye
goods with soap and alkali," examined.
It was found that the waste could be
easily worked up in a simple apparatus,
thereby furnishing indigo mid oleic
acid which could be employed again
in the works. So large a quantity of
this waste water was obtained in the
works that the recovery of these two
articles, at the prices then prevailing,
meant a saving of over thirty dollars
daily. For almost fifty years this liquid
had been allowed to run into the
It is by watching such articles and
taking advantage of the results that
some of the largest fortunes have been
made. Carnegie made his first real
start in the iron business by having the
iron ores he purchased tested and then
properly utilized. The unparalleled
success and thc vast accumulation of
wealth of the Standard Oil company is
largely founded upon the same careful
attention to the utilization of the waste
The same thing is true in almost all
avenues, not the least so in mining.
The miner who succeeds best is the
man who can cut off the greatest
wastes, and turn them instead into
profits. The old method will do no
longer. Only a bonanza will stand
such wasteful practices. In this day of
large mines and low-grade ores, the
most careful economy in each department is needed for success, and it is
best attained by permitting nothing to
go to waste.' Throw nothing away
until you are sure that the last vestige
of value has been extracted and profited
byi As an example of the old extravagant methods in mining, it is only
necessary to call attention to the
numerous piles of tailings which, are,
now being worked at a profit at old
mines from which millions have been
taken. In some instances, these tailings are actually yielding greater
values than were extracted from ores
by first treatment; in ether words more
values escaped than were saved. Of
course, this was due in a great measure
to the crude methods of mining in the
early days, but a test of some of the
tailings at mines of tlie present day,
after treatment by modern methods
and machinery, is proof enough that a
great deal of the loss may be traced to
carelessness or ignorance. The tailings cannot be tested too often.
Some years ago, a miner who had a
rich claim in Siskiyou county from
which he was taking out line free milling ore and getting good returns with
a small mill, called al the Review oflice
when he was in San I'raiicUi'o and exhibited some of the ore. On examination the writer found that besides (he
line gold there were sulphurets ol unusual value apparently in the ore. Wc
asked the miner what he got out ofthe
sulphurets. His reply was characteristic of tlie early miner: "Oh, damn
the sulphurets, ji's the free gold I'm
uflcr." Through curiosily we had the
rock tested and the sulphurets were
worth $345 per ion.

A Pretty Woman.
What is essential to a pretty woman?
Here is the answer as given by a mod-
erd beauty expert:
A pretty woman, first of all, must
have clearly cut, regular features.
She must have a skin above reproach
untouched by rouge or powder.
She must have full, clear eyes.
She must have eyelashes long and
curling upward.
She must have eyebrows finely
marked, slightly arched, long and narrow; but the narrow line should be
thickly covered, so as to be well marked,
as if penciled.
She must have a straight nose, yet
delicate, neither fleshy, nor pointed, nor
broad at the tip, with the nostrils free
and flexible.
She must have a mouth rather too
large than too small, with lips full and
plump and rosy red. Even an exquisitely shaped mouth has no charm with-
Sandon and Elsewhere
Salted   and   Smoked   Fish   Just   Received
Eastern   and  Olympia   Oysters.     Turkeys   and   Chickens
She must have even, regular teeth, of
moderate size, pearly white, with full
She must have a chin neither sharp
nor blunt, but gently undulating in its
line, round and cushiony, turning a
little upward, wi'h a dimple in it.
She must have a small, delicate jaw,
not large and angular, which gives a
hard, domineering look.
She must have a throat round, full
and pillar-like, a marble column to support the head.
She must have glossy hair that has
never known the touch of bleach or dye.
She must fully understand what best
suits her in the way of hairdfessing,
and cling closely to that style.
She must have small, delicate, compact ears of a shell-like shape.
She must have 11 forehead smooth,
even, white, delicate, short, and of an
open, trustful character. Aristo s;tys
"of lcR|pll\"t>ry with the joyous brow."
She must have a long and delicate
hand, yet plump, with tapering lingers,
the tips of which, when resting on the
palm, should turn back a little.

smelter is an attempt to get a slice of
the bonus, which was avowedly given
solely for the benefit of the producer.
Unless our company gets as low rates
as the Trail smelter offered in March
last we don't propose to move. The
company won't be held up by any railroad, corporation or smelter, because
we don't have to submit. The St. Eugene company doesn't owe a cent, has
money in the bank and the mine is
there and cannot be stolen,
"When the Trail smelter is ready to
do business with us on a reasonable
basis, which is the March rate, we are
prepared to sign a contract and to
operate the St Eugene to its full capacity. This tneans'a daily output of not
less than 100 tons of concentrates and
tho employment of 200 men.
"Meantime alterations nnd improvements are beim: mado at the St. Eugene mill under the direction nf jniil
superintendent King, The plant is be-
ihg arranged to save tlio Zinc-blende
carried in our ore. We expect to save
from 2o0 to 8C0 tons of srinc-blende
monthly, but do not propose putting
this product on the market at the
present time. The only sale for Canadian zinc-blende is at Iola, Kansas,
and we expect to secure a market
nearer home eventually."
Tha treatmein of zinc ores is yet in
itsinfaney in Coloiada. Mine managers
admit that our present methods are
wasteful and we have made an important advance in bringing zinc ores to a
position of commercial value. We are
not allowing our zinc reserves to remain wholly useless.
But there are still other problems
which confront Leadville, We have
yet to Bolve the problem of low grade
silicious ores. Experimentors and investigators are at work, however.
Plants will have to be eretted and torn
down before the right method is determined but it is absurd to suppose that the
metallurgical science of the day cannot
find a way to treat $6 silicious'ore at a
profit, when S"2 ore at Hoinestake or
Treadwell makes dividends.—Leadville Herald-Democrat.
