some time to run a tunnel from a point

THE   MOUNTAIN   CON.
The Mountain Con group of five
claims in on the south fork of Carpenter
crook, about 17 miles from New Denver.
A cross-cut tunnel is now being run to
strike the vein. A substantial shed and
blacksmith shop has been erected at the
entrance. Owing to the early and
heavy snowfall a large amountof snow-
shovelling was necessary before this
could be done. The cross cut is now iu
17 feet, and will have to be run 120 feet
to tap the vein. It is just possible that
when the vein is reached a larger body
of ore than has yet been found on this
property will bo uncovered. Expert
and practical testimony point to this
conclusion. When the vein is ranched
a drift can be continued to the old tunnels, giving at that point a depth of
about 260 foot. Tho two short tunnels
run by the former owner yielded three
carloads of high grade ore, and it Is expected that when the shoot is reached
large bodies of ore will be found to ex
lit, an tbe vein is a true fissure that
can be traced on both sides of the mountain, and shows ore on the surface on
both the north and south slopes.
On account of the unusually early and
excessive fall of snow It was found im*
pouible to build snow aheda that would
enablo working In the old tunnelM, or
any place in close proximity thereto.
The cross cut will permit the property
to be worked at all times of the year,
and is the only safe place to work in to
advantage during the winter. From
the amount of ore exposed it is reasonably certain that large shipments will
be made when tlie snow melts. Several
tons of mining supplies are now al the
nuu- cabin, sufficient to last fur many
mouths. This property is at an altitude
of 8,000 feet, and the managers deserve

and murdered art. A few days ago an
effort was made to again quicken this
temple of degradation into life. The
law and the church opposed it without
success, but the lessees shut up of their
own accord, and left the town without
paying their bills. It is to be hoped
that such a vile resort will never again
be opened in the city.
A The contest for the mayoralty was
Warm as usual. The veteran George
Kane was defeated by Gus Carlson.
The many friends of Kane regret that
he'was defeated. Many thought that a
Swede should not be mayor of a Canadian town, but such opinions are too
narrow. The Swedes are high in the
qualities that make good citizens, and
Carlson will be a credit to the town
that has elected him for its chief officer.
The air is full, of smelter talk, and
the citizens have a rustle on them that
looks like old times. Their eyes are
full of hope, and it is the only question
upon which all the inhabitants agree.
Kaslo people propose to have a $600,000
smelter in their town if the capital can
be raised! They have subscribed
locally about $10,000, and expect to
obtain the balance of the capital in
Toronto, 'Many difficulties beset a project of this kind, but Kaslo has one of
the beat smelter sites in Kootenay, and
if it can be shown to men of means that
the enterprise will pay the money will
be forthcoming. A smelter in full
operation would make Kaslo- swell out

the verge of business tremens as it has

the mines to thrive on a purely miners
tfado, but is an ideal spot for smelting
works. The friends of progression wish
the scheme every success.

i8 The Production in 1900 Shows an Increase Over!
3   Previous Years with Brighter Outlook for iqoI .
The production of lead in the United
States in 1900, (in it is included that
from British Columbia), showed a substantial increase over the previous year.
The great silver-lead mines of the
Coeur d'Aiene were actively worked
throughout the year, while the mines of
the same class in Montana and Colorado
were also generally active. The soft
lead mines of Southeastern Missouri also
showed a considerable gain. The Engineer and Mining Journal of New
York gives the following figures, showing the output of lead for the states
alone for the two years: Desilverized
lead, 1899, 171,495 tons; 1900, 196,682
tons; increase 14.8 per cent. Soft lead,
40,508 tons against 47,864 in 1900; showing 17.0 increase. Antimonial, 7,877
tons in 1899, and 7,785 tons in 1900; increase, 5.7. The U. S. refineries during
the year also turned out 103,705 tons of
lead from foreign ores and base bullion,
the greater part of which came from
Mexico, though the mines of British
Columbia   furnished   a   considerable
kao.luuin.
uao vuvu
122,850 tons. The market tor zinc oxide
as a paint is increasing, as is also the
demand for zinc ores.
The production of copper during the
last year was in one sense a disappointment. The output of the United States
was very large, but showed only a
moderate Increase over the total of 1899,
notwithstanding the opening of new
mines and the inducements for a larger
production offered by the continued
great demand for the metal and the
consequent high prices. The total output for the year was 604,887,860 pounds,
an increase of 84,568,269 pounds over
that of 1899. The three chief produc
ing regions in this country are the Lake
Superior District, Montana and Arizona.
Of these, Arizona was the only district
showing an increase. The large mines
of that region have continued to extend
their production and their facilities*
Canadian production has not shown any
material increase over the product of
1890. No important new mines were
opened in 1900, but this year may see
gome important devs!onments.	
IN   THE   WHITK   OROUSK.
The White Grouse country, in the
Goat River inining division, has been
known for many years, but owing to
lack of transportation facilities it has
not come to a shipping point, although
the indications of large deposits of gold,
copper and silver are of frequent occurrence on the hundreds of claims staked
in the district. Mrs. Jennie E. Harris,
associated with her sons, has for years
been interested in the district. Mrs.
Harris is a native of Halton, Ontario,
and has resided In the west for fourteen years, most of tlm time in
Kaslo. Being ambitious to succeed alio,
after many trials and diflicuitieo, recently attracted the attention of San
Francisco capital to hor properties and
bonded them for a large sum. The
first payment of 110,000 was deposited
in a Nelson bank early this month but
cannot be paid over vet, as a man who
holds a small interest in some of tbe
claims has for some reason entered an
action in tho supremecourtagainat part
of the property. The trial will bo heard
on Feb. flth, when the many friend*) of
Mrs. Harris hope the last difficulty in
ber path will lie cleared away. Mainly
by her efforts tho White Grouse district
la being brought to the favorable notice
of capital, and those who attempt to
check her progress, Injure arnty claim
owner in the district. In a short time
two railroads will tap the White firouw
district, and open up what may yet be
the greatest copper section In B. (.'.
THK   HHIOUI.KK  II HO UP.
The .Smuggler group, owned by O.
W. Greenlee and J, II. Moraii, consists

remarkably steady, and the American
smelter combine believes a good price
is assured for some years.
With the increased production of copper and lead there was a corresponding
increase in silver, a large part of the
output being in the nature of a by-product. The total output was 60,478,276
troy ounces, valued at $87,086,218. This
compared with 57,126,834 troy ounces,
valued at $84,036,168, in 1899. The refineries also produced from foreign ores
and bullion in 1900 a total of 46,852,281
troy ounces, valued at $28,428,219. It is
claimed by the smelter trust that the
price of silver has been raised by it, and
that the price will go still higher In 1901.
The only production of nickle from
ores mined iu the United States was
20,000 pounds made from ore mined at
the Mine U Motto in Missouri. This
was a decrease of 2,500 pounds from
1899. A large quantity of tho metal
was refined from Canadian ores and
matte. The demand (or nickle has continued active and prices have been well
maintained throughout tho year. The
Mond Nickel Company, operating in
the Sudbury District in Ontario, has
acquired 18 mlniiur locations covering
about 2,900 acres in the Denlkon and
Garson districts. These properties are
being developed with very satisfactory
results. The Deniaon property, to
which most attention has been paid, la
being developed by the sinking of shafts,
etc., for the production of ore, and a
smelting plant for producing matte is In
the course of erection. At the Mtmn
time active work has been proceeding
on the property Dr. Mond has acquired
at Clydach, near Hwanwa, in South
Wales, in the erection of work* for the
refining of the matte produced In Can*
] ada, by the Mond process, and it is ex*
■M<ct»*l that these works when completed
will produce front I,<**» to I/*** tons of

About May 1 next, says the Nelson
Miner, the Miner-Graves syndicate will
take the initial steps in the development of the Rockland group on Eight
Mile creek, the outcome of which will
be to establish what is likely to be the
greatest mining industry in tho Slocan.
The expenditure of $75,000 in development and the construction of a smelter
on the ground to treat Rockland ores
are the principal features of the syndicate's prognunmo. The Rockland group
comprises two full claims, and a fraction
aggregating about 110 acres of mineral
land.    The property came into  the
possession of Frank Watson, one of tbe
best known mining operators in British
Columbia, with whom was affiliated
Judge Spinks ol Vernon.  These gentlemen put considerable money Into development and devoted time and attention to  securing  clean titles to the
ground.   When this was in ahape the
proposition was presented to Mr. Miner
aud was taken up by tho syndicate oo
the strength of a report from their
auperlntendeut,  W.  Yolen   Williams,
who la said to have described the Rockland as "the biggest copper property In
tbe country."  Mr. Watson and Judge
Spinks retain a third Intereat In tbe
property.  The agreement governing
the sale providea for tbe placing of
175,000 in the treaaurv for development
and for the comm«nc«*m«nt of opura*

have to pay as a tribute over |5,-
000,000 a year to certain officials.
This is an enormous tax and would

larger than Sandon, Greenwood or
other western towns.

boy was summoned hastily to a
room in a Nelson hotel the other
morning and told to bring a John
Collins right quick. The boy rushed
downstairs into the bar and exclaimed: "Where is John Collins?
Has anybody seen John Collins?"
Being asked what ho wanted John
for he said that there was a man
from Sandon dying in No. I and
that he wanted to see John before
it was too late. It may be need-
ItiKS to relate that John wm ovent*
ually found and sent up to No. 1
in a somewhat agitated condition.
A company is applying to the
Local Legislature for a charter to
construct a tuunel, with other privileges, from a point on Four Mile
creek to a point near Sandon. The
work will cost a vast amount of
money, and no one seems to know
who is behind it. Is it a scheme
to procure a charter for puddling
in London? Too many charters
have been given in U. C. to achvui-
era,and care should be given in the
future to grant no charters except
to people willing to put up the

Is one of vast importance, and if a

the Queen's Death
Queen Victoria, ruler over Great Britain and Ireland, and Empress of India (known in India as Kaisar-
i-Hind), is dead. She was born on May 24, 1819, and
crowned June 20, 18377 She was the mother of nine
children, her husband dying upon Dec. 14, 1861. Upon
the 22nd of this month death called her away and left a
nation in tears. Her long reign of nearly 64 years is at
last ended by the ruthless march of time against which
all fall alike, be they queen or peasant. Unlike the
most of royalty, her life has been a noble one, and ithe
regret at her demise throughout the Empire is sincere.
She has gone to rest, leaving behind her a record of a
long and useful life, one that will live in the memory of
the world for ages. Unaffected by position, unspotted
by passion or intrigue, she lived her life true to her God,
her country and herself.   She was a Queen in every

I met a man last sum-
Jmer, from the cent belt,
aiTOS who told me that he
mm I      once refused  to  give
till* Jim Hill trust for an
axe. Since that time Jim seems to
have prospered. I notice by the
daily prints that he has recently
gone into a deal with Morgan and
Rockefeller, whereby the trio control nearly 20,000 miles of railway,
several steamships,80,000 employes
and have a cinch long enough to
girdle the earth. Jim's pile and
credit have evidently improved
since he got turned down because
he could not dig up the cold cash
for an ordinary axe. He is reported to have 50,000,000 pieces of the
deity that rules the American people, and is no doubt anxious to rule
the earth. Being a Canadian, he
has a warm spot in his blood pumper for his native land, and if re-
ports are true he shows it by buying
a largo slice of the Crow's Nwt
Paas coal fields. This valuable
asset, it will be remembered, was
originally almost given away by the
generous legislature of B. C. Jim
is doing well and does not fear the
sheriff, lie doe*- not tremble when
the plumber comes around with his
bill, and is never haunted with the
vision of a protested note. Great
is Jim ! He has a master mind,
and bye and bye he will probably
buy out the C. P. R. and teach the
Canucks who is their papa. He Is

It is a trust against the many and
in the interests of the few, and a
blow at free trade in the community. If merchants cannot compete
against peddlers should the people
be made to pay for it ? That is the
question agitating the minds of
many where the high tax exists.
Some of the so-called peddlers
have done a great deal towards the
development of this province. Take
Jacob Fleishmann for instance.
Nineteen years ago he sold goods
through the mountains of B. C,
and has become a wealthy man
through bis energy and sterling
business qualities. He is heavily
interested in various parts of tho
province, and haB expended thousands of dollars in the development
of milling claims. He Is still doiug
it, and still selling goods on the
road, with his headquarters at
Vancouver. He finds himself,
with others, shut out of some cities
by a high tax. Is it right that
such should be tho case? Tbe
people should answer tho question.

Hypnotism is a force
little understood by the
masses, but it existe,and
will beforu many years
be made plainer to the world. Its
workings are in evidence everywhere. Som«| are hypnotised by
one thing, and some by another.
One man comes to town with good
health and a big roll of money. He
looks at a bottle, this being the
point of suggestion. He samples
it, and becomes hypnotised. While
in this condition the man labors
under the hallucination that whiskey is the one thing on earth worthy
of appreciation and he tries to drink
all that is for sale. After a time
the strange influence wears off and
he comes back to a normal condition, broke usually, and wondering
why he did it. «       "'„■■•
Flag hypnotism is very prevalent,
especially of late in Canada. Some
after they have fixed their attention
upon a piece of bright cloth waving in the air will follow it through
all kinds of privation until they are
awakened by some stronger influence.
Love of the sexes offers a striking example of this hidden force.
A person will frequently fall under
the influence of one of the opposite
sex,and do almost everything under
the sun while in this state. This
kind of hypnotic power is often
only cured by death, or too close
companionship.
Gambling is another striking example of this power. There is
nothing permanent in gambling except the rake-off; yet millions labor
under the delusion that they can
.gflt-riQh_fttJt._^Oupidit-V;Wif.h soma
instrument of chance as a point of
suggestion, will cause those who
are susceptible to buck any game,
from craps to Monte Carlo. Hold
up mining stock, or Wall street
schemes, to some people and you
will put them to sleep. Give others
an ace in the hole, and they will
stay with it until the last card falls.
Extreme and absolute poverty is
the only antidote against this form
of hypnotism.
Religion hypnotizes millions.
The preacher holds tip' Buddha,
Mahomet, Christ or some other
deity to tlie people and they fall
under the power. The strange
workings of this kind of hypnotism
are be«t seen by those beyond its
influence. It keeps millions in
India from eating meat or drinking
alcohol, while in other countries it
enables thousands to obtain a living on this earth. It is one of the
most prevalent forms of hypnotism,
and those under its power are ever
seeking to induce others to enjoy
the sweet rest that they experience.
Study, reason and thought will
awaken those who are in this sleep,
but thc awakening is so painful
that those beyond the pale hesitate
to do It.
Millions are under the influence
of tea, coffee, tobacco and drugs.
Break away from any and all forms
of hypnotic influence and the agony
of awakening is cither mentally or
physically acute.
Sleep is a form of this wontierftil
force. Think on, or look at, one
object for a time and Morpheus will
have you. When nothing will influence us on this earth we die,and
pass Into a condition about which
there Is nothing but theory.

Drains are as essential to the happiness

hearts and good health. These things go
hand in hand when the proper care is exercised in the selection of articles of food.
Too much care cannot be taken along

It is a pleasant though to cherish that
the world is becoming more "civilized."
Lecturers tell us this from the rostrum,
poets prate about it in verse, and the
newspapers tell charming tales of the
advancement of man; all of which, if
true at all, is not more than a half-truth.
The Auglo-Saxon race prides itself on
being the most advanced people under
the sun, and our poets proclaim to the
world that we are bearing the "white
man's" burden.    What is the white
man's burden?  Is it the forcing upon
the weaker peoples—weaker in   the
armaments of war—our ideas of what
constitute civilisation?   Is it to force
upon our weaker brethren, at the point
of the bayonet, the damnable drink
curse, the hundred and one social and
moral evils that pollute Christendom,
the love-killing, man-killing,; system of
business, political, and  social rivalry
that oas become the component part of
what we call "civilization?'] Is this the

A good word tor the Turk by a
missionary from Armenia is rather a
novelty to-day, but Rev. Fred Macallum. in an interview recently with a
Toronto Globe reporter, declared the
upper official class in Turkey to be
rather pleasant people, and said he
much enjoyed his social intercourse
with them'  Mr. Macallum is a professor in the American Congregational
Mission College for the training of
native missionaries at Marash, a town
of 40,000 people, in the VUayet ot
Aleppo, 125 miles inland.   He is now
on furlough.   Coming" from Canada,
which the Turks knew to be in America, the subjects of the Sultan conceived he had behind him the in-
flaence of both Great Britain and the
United States, and treated him with
commensurate deference.   He was
received upon equal social  tooting
with the Governor and higher officials,   would frequently dine with
them and they with him.   As stated,
he epoke highly of them; their scientific knowledge was not great, but
tbey were shrewd politicians, Versed
in the affairs of Europe, and thoroughly   companionable   gentlemen.
One thing, however, he does not forgive them—they will not let him have
The Globe in Turkey, it is on the
Government's black list, and is confiscated upon arrival in the country.
One of his intimate friends among the
Tirks was Edhem Pasha, who was
Commander-in-Chief of the Turkish
forces in the late war with Greece.
He was an eminently just and kindly
pan, and well fitted in Mr. Macal-
lum's opinion to give the Greeks the
drubbing they needed.   He thought
the Greeks at that time suffered from
"big head"
Speaking ot the reported massacre
near Vitlls last summer, and another
a couple of months ago, near Diar-
bekir, Mr. Macallum said they were
merely isolated inroads or raids of
the hill Kurds. In fact, he did not
term them massacres at all; that
word, he confined to outbreaks in
_tigaws_—by^the- Governmentr—~_he

Instead of bishops and knights, Chinese chess has a general, secretaries,
elephants, horses, chariots,' cannon
and soldiers. There is also a river
between the opposing forces. But
otherwise the game is very similar
to its distant and—according to the
Chinese ideas—degenerate descendant played by ourselves. There are
64 squares on the board and 16 pieces
on each side. Chess originated in
China, B.C. 1120.
Kites in China, says Answers, are
generally square-shaped. They are
the universal amusement of all ages
and classes. Our kite flyers might
take many hints in kite flying from
Chinese boys. The light silk string
and the reel to wind it on are much
ahead of our rough cord pulled in by
hand. Kite flying come** here as a
spring amusement, a custom; apparently direct from China, wh^re any
one flying a kite at another season
would be laughed at. j
Pegtop schoolboys owe to Chinese
inventors. But Chinese boys, always
play top in winter on frozen; ground
or on ice. Many tops are beautifully
finished and carved. Humming tops
are known as "thunder topi." The
origin of the Chinese tops dates back
to the mythical period of Chinese history 3000 to 5000 B.C.
No game has crossed to us from the
far east less altered than backgammon. Chinese backgammon men,
boards and dice are almost identical
with those used by ourselves. The
Chinese name for backgammon, literally translated, is bottle chess,
Why the Chinese should call dominoes "foreign tablets" is a mystery,
seeing that they and the Koreans
have played games with dominoes
for ten or twelve centuries past. In
numerals and size Chinese dominoes
are similar to those used in Europe
and America. The only difference
in that the dots are a little difft rently
arranged, and the number of pieces
is not quite the same. A set consists
of 21 pieces, 11 of which are duplicated, making 32 In the complete set.
The Chinese have more domino
games than ourselves, including a
curious one called "tortoise.4* There
seems little doubt that, dominoes
came to us from the east, instead of
being, as claimed, the invention of

see other women look better than they.
A five dollar bill given to a dictator
would save women at least 50 per cent.
in expenditure and cure her of the fretting habit. There are women who
think that their lack of taste can be
made up^by buying the most expensive
wear. Ten to twenty-five dollars are
put in hats that make them look like
frights.when half the amount expended
in a head dress suited to face, height,
width, nose, eyes, chin, hair, neck and
f-eneral appearance would make them
ook well and happy. A woman of no
well-defined knowledge of what she
wants or should wear, goes to a lot of
expense for an outfit, strains every
nerve to get the best and then selects
the most expensive dressmaker and
milliner to build the suit7 After it is
finished she is made sick by seeing her
neighbor go by with a suit that cost
half as much as she expended, looking
just as she would like to look, while she
looks tawdry. For a whole season she
must feel this chagrin, and before she
can buy a new outfit she has paid the
physician more than several suits would
cost, due to racked nerves. Her disease
has been diagnosed by her physician,
uterine trouble, ovarian trouble,nervous
Erostration, indigestion or something as
orrible, In some cases she may have
to pay out a large sum for having her
ovaries i emovea—surgery is a luxury
that comes high, but women who cant
dress themselves with skill and taste
have to have it. This is no exaggeration; there are women who haye gone
through!all kinds of operations because
of alack ol skill in Knowing how to
dress. ■'..-,.-
No amount of money expended in
dress wUl help a woman, who has no
taste, to dress well. All such should
have the benefit of the suggestions of a
style expert.

THE   BEAUTIFUL    THINGS.
Lite's beautiful things are so many,
So free to the humblest one,
That'even to count them for thought's
7,    delight,
Ah, surely, we'd never be done!
But only because of their plenty,
Because they are ours when tre will.
We value them lightly as common and
cheap,
And our souls are unsatisfied stil|.
Reaching out  for  the  things of our
dreaming,
With vision so stubborn and blind.
That the rapture which calls to us day
by day
Is too near for our seeking to find;
Oh, the loss of it all, and the pity,
And the yearning and hunger and pain,
That we live in a world full of beautiful
things,
The beauty of which we disdain!

CONTRACTS   IN
IN   1766.
ENGLAND
The following "bond" was found
among tho "Deiaval Papers," and exhibited before the Newcastle Society of
Antiquarians. In these days of strikes,
workingmeh's independence and employees' attempts to dictate the management of factories, etc., the willingness
on the part of the men in the olden time
to agree to anything and everything is
noticeable. Not content with binding
themselves to work nowhere but on the
estate of their employer, they further
agree for their wives and children,
Tney were, in fact, little better than
slaves. Miners' wages of Is 6d. (86c.)
and putters' and trammers' wages 9d.
(18c.) per day, do not compare very
well with prices paid in Pennsylvania
mines to-day. We give the "bond" in
full. 7
"Articles of agreement made and
fully agreed upon this the 8th day of
December, 1766, between the pitmen,
hewers and putters in Ford Colliery,
whose names are under wrout, on the
one part, and Sir John Hussey Deiaval,
of Ford Castle, in the County of Northumberland, Baronet, on the other
part, as follows, that is to say—
"First, the hewers whose names are
under wrout doth by these present for
the consideration hereafter mentioned,
bind themselves unto Sir John Hussey
Deiaval, Baronet, from the date of'their
presence until Whitsunday, 1768, to
•work or hew each day out of the stoney
coals 85 bolls of good measure,and clean
coals and free from dross, etc.
a "And we, the putters, doth, for the
'consideration hereafter mentioned, bind
ourselves from the. date of their presence until Whitsunday, 1768, to put
each man's work being as above expressed 85 bolls of coals.
"And the said Sir John Hussey Deiaval, Baronet, doth by these presence
agree to and with the said pitmen and
putters, they performing all the covenants herein expressed, to pay each pitman or hewer per day Is. 6d", and each
■ putter 9 d. for the coal oie pitman works
—in one day, being-the-precise quantity
of 85 bolls as aforesaid. And the said
pitmen and putters do further agree to
and with the said Sir John Hussey Deiaval, Baronet, that if any of us do put
out or work any more coals more than
shall be given in to the agent of Sir
Jshn Hussey Deiaval, Baronet, or do
anything that may be to the prejudice
of the colliery, or that may in any
measure be so liable to stop the work.
Then and in such wise we, the said pitmen and putters, do hereby agree that
it shall and may be lawful for the said
Sir John Hussey Deiaval, Baronet, or
his agent, to atop off one week's wage,
one-half of which shall go to the former,
and for the second offence two weeks'
wages.
"And we, tho putters, do further
roe to and with the said Sir John
ussoy Deiaval, Baronet, to put the
length of 70 yards from the middle of
the work.ana foj every 10 yards further
the said Sir John Hussey Deiaval doth
agree to pay Id. per day advance.
"And in such case when there is not
a sufficient number of putteis than we,
the said hewers, do agree to put In our
turns. And the said Sir John Hussey
Deiaval, Baronet, doth further agree to
Esy candles and to pay each putter and

"And wo.tho snld putters and pitmen,
doth further agree to and with the said
Sir John Hissay Deiaval, Baronet, that
it any of our wives or selves do shear at
all to do it at no place but at Flodden

And we do hereby agree to work on

Of ill the natural phenomena peculiar to the Hooky mountain rojrlon
none li mora etrange or terrible than

Indiana as "the whit* death." Scientific men have never yet had an op*

ia really a frozen log. But where the
(off comes from ii more than ..ny one
can aay. Tills phenomenon occurs
most frequently In the northern part
of Colorado. In Wyoming, and occasionally In Montana.
About two years ago a party off
three  wutuen  and  two men were
en-rosing North Park in a wairon in j
the tttflnth ol February.   The atlr
was bitterly cnld, bat dry as a bone
and motionless.   The son *horie with

five people drove along over the crisp
mow they did not experience the least

sod rather enjoyed tbe trip. Moan

Men aa distinctly aa the pine trees by
the roadside
Soddenly one of the women put
her hand uj> lo her face and remarked
that •cNnething :ad stung her. Then
other mem^-mifthe ftarty did the
same thing, alt..<mgh not a sign of an
insect could be seen. All marveled
greatly at this. A moment later they
noticed that the distant mountains
were disappearing behind a cloud of
mist. Mist in Colorado in February ?
Surely there must be some mistake.
But there was no mistake because
within ten minutes a erentle wind began to blow and the air became filled
with fine particles ot something that
scintillated like diamond dust in the
sunshine. Still the people drove on
until they came to a cabin where a
man signalled them to stop. With
his head tied up in a bundle of mufflers, he rushed nut and handed the
driver a piece of paper on which was
written: "Come into the house quick
or this storm will kill all of you.
Don't talk outside here."
Of course no time was lost in get
ting under cover and putting the
horses in the stables. But they were
a little late, for in less than an hoar
the whole party was sick with violent
coughs aud fever. Before the next
morning one of the women died with
all the symptoms of pneumonia. The
others were violently ill of it, but
managed to pull through after long
sickness.—Ainslee'j Magazine.

That Invincible Boom That la Always
Coming to the Slocan.
"I never 3aw the Slocan country more
promising than it looks at the present
time," is the answer given by Frank
Watson, a prominent Spokane mining
man, to the alarnist reports regarding
the effect of the American Smelting and
Refining- Company's action in declining
to renew contracts for British Columbia
ores,  on  the mining interests of the
Slocan.   Mr. Watson was in the city, for
a short time yesterday, after spending
four days in the Slocan country, where
his financial stakes are driven probably
as deep as those of any one other man
operating in the Kootenay-.   Wherever
he went he found that the shipping
minetf%ere making new' contracts for
their ores and* in  many cases more
favorable terms were secured than was
ever the case before.   Where ores carry
a high percentage of lead values, the
contracts ar not so liberal as was formerly the case,but even in these instances
the existing rates are better than those
in force during the last few months of
1900.   The mines in the Slocan City
section have benefited materially by
the demand for dry ores.   Their rate is
now about $7.50 per ton for freight and
treatment and the mining men of the
district predict a *5 rate to go into effect
shortly.   Such favorable smelting terms
should substantially stimulate mining

A Testimonial
of Special Value
Sandon, Jan. 12,1901.
G. W. Grimmett,
Sandon, B.C.
Dear Sib.—It gives me great pleasure to
testify to the success which has attended your
system of testing and preicrlbing for defective
eye sight in my case and to tnerelief I have ob-
Uinedanceusing the gls\sses~whlch you supplied. The particular trouble with my eyes was
considered serious by an eminent eye specialist
in Toronto, but with the aid of your glasses I am
enabled to attend to clerical work, and reading
for three and four hours at a stretch without the
slightest Inconvenience Iuoroy opinion It is
unnecessary for anyone to go to outside points
in order to secure a thorough and scientific test
f<jr defectiye vision.
I am very truly yours,_
