satisfied with their mining venture in
that part of Canada, says the R. C. Review. Tho Monitor anil Ajax Fraction,
a private syndicate with a nominal capital of £55,000. has for some years past
been operating the Monitor group of, '„*£
claims in the Slocan, near the smallfj*^
mining town of Three Forks. The
syndicate appears to have carried on
their operations with considerable judgment, and have the good fortune, to
possess a group of claims containing a
strong vein of high-grade argentiferous
tialena with, what is rather unusual ir
the Slecan, good gold values. The
mine, we understand, has now reached
a profit earning stage, and this has
been accomplished with the issue of
little more than half of the nominal capital. The shipments of the Monitor for
January exceeded 200 tons of ore,which
it is estimated will yield an average net
return from the smelter of about £15 a
ton; of this the gold values represent
about $20 The Ajax Fraction is the
claim adjoining the Last Chance, which
recently ran into a strong body of ore
at a distance of 1,000 feet beiow the surface, the lowest workings at present of
any Slocan property.

is at present visiting in the east, upon
learning of tiie organization of the
Tourist Association here writes:
"The tourist movement is sound, and
is a strictly business * proposition
Kootenay can give exceptionally better
value to tourists in climate, scenery,
hunting, fishing, and interesting sights
around the mines, etc.,-titan any place
in all the world, and 1 have seen quite
a hit of this last myself and know what
I'm writing of.
"The hotel keepers and transportation companies are specially interested
in this matter, and I wish to point out
that hotels for tourists will have to be
more comfortable, convenient and better conducted than the Kootenay hotels,
with few exceptions, are at present.
Tourists won't come to Kootenay to get
drunk standing around bars. They
will want good beds, warm rooms, good
meals, and eveiything homelike and
comfortable
"New Denver should if possible get a
good trail built up to the Slocan glacier,
opposite the town, also have one or two
rough but comfortable log cabins built
as high up the trail as practicable for
the accommodation of people who go
up there. They need a place to jcpok
lunches in,"aHBTTf the weather should
get bad, to shelter in. Special look out
or view points should be selected and
foot trails built to them or posts marking the routes erected.
"A small steam, naptha or electric
launch should be put on the lake to
carry people across from New Denver
to end of trail, and this boat should be
run by a man who is reliable and who
knows the lake and the local weather
indications. Everything should bo done
to prevent any visitor from meeting
with an accident, exposure or too much
hardship A very small percentage of
tourists are lit to rough it. The best
policv is to make tlio trip easy for
thorn."
Speaking of the east ho says: "There
is something about these eastern cities
that depresses my spirits. So mnnv
young men and women, able-bodied,
fairly well educated, and very willing
to work, yet apparently quite hopeless
as to their futures. 'Class privilege' or
legislation favoring those who now
have money is the very root of the evil
I believe.
"In Ontario, take mining for instance,
the iioor but able-bodied Canadian has
no sliow to secure his share ot the natural resources or wealth of   the  country.   Those who have money get every
chance, every privilege,   to  use   then-
money to advantage, and all of the natural wealth of the country in the way
of mineral   hinds,   timber  lauds,   etc.
Ontario   would   become  a line mining

of 1902 closes, unless all signs fail, 71
considerably greater number of home-
seekers will have gone intothe Canadian
west than were engaged iu the first rush
across the Oklahoma border. Tho
more moderate estimates are that at
least 70,000 people will have taken up
their residence in Western Canada before another harvest has been reaped,
and the mors sanguine estimates are
put at as high a figure as 200,000
If the lower figure'* is the nearest to
the mark it will be a suffic-ently remarkable event, and its influence on
the currents of commerce in the west
will be wide and deep. The settlers
from tho United States are coming in,
no doubt, with a great many of their
wants already supplied, but, however
well furnished with their main requirements, the sum of their unexpected or
unprovided for needs will be gieat. It
is thought in some quarters that these
settlers trom the United States will, for
various reasons, prefer to procure their
wants, even after they have settled in
the new land, from the American towns
where they have been accustomed to
deal. It is scarcely credible that they
would put themselves so much about
unless thoy found that they got better
goods and-more-suitable-goods-across—
tlie line than thev do here. We should
think that it would be well worth while
to pay some attention to the preferences
or even the prejudices of the incoming
host.givinK them such excellent quality
and value Tor their money that any disposition to look to the old home for
their supplies would quickly be removed. There is one thing, at all
events, that the eastern merchant and
manufacturer havo to get a good, firm
grip of, and that is the (act that this
year will see such a transfer of popula
tion as this continent has not witnessed,
to the same extent at least, for many a
day
The day of big things has alreadv
arrived for tho west. The debate i'n
the Commons 011 the grain blockade in
Manitoba irtid the Territories contained
revelations even for the well informed
members of Parliament. It was stated
even by those who complained uf the
blockade that the Canadian Pacific
Railway had moved ii'i per cent, more
wheat and 125 per cent, more oats than
it had done in the previous year up to
llie same time, and yet had' made bill
little impression on the mountains of
grain that still remain to be moved.
The fall rains Inst year greatly delayed
the threshing, with the co'useqtie'iice
that the railway had but Iii days to
move grain belore the closing of 'navigation. This was an unusually short
season, and at the best the margin of
time between the reaping of the crop

John D. Rockefeller has millions
in money, but is poorer than

a square meal and is bald-headed
from woi-ry. All his money cannot buy an appetite. With all his
gold he is as thin as the, ghost, of
an India famine. Probably if John
would edit this paper for. a few
months his appetite might return,
and we will change places with
him, not that we care for money
but--just to help John and add t
little variety, to onr existence.
In the United States soriie of the
railways are advertising in the cast-
that there is plenty of room
North-western States for settlers
aud laboring men. '.' This is a lie.]
There is little room in those States
for anyone without money as is
evidenced by the thousands of
penniless people in the west. It is
criminal for the railways: to : Hood
the west with, broken people, but
they will continue to do it as they
are in the push arid you cannot
knock thein: down with anything
short of a revolution, and that will
come in the States just as surg as
it-rains, in  April.   ;.
The Intercolonial railway
Canada does not pay because it is
used by politicians to hold themselves in power. When men become honest government railways
will pay. In Canada we have
practically a set of thieves governing the people. All some of them
think of is to" do the eo'intry for
the benefit of themselves,, and :the

Many people think   that    phy
sical   culture" 'means' to   don. a
gymnasium auit and' go through a
few   ealesthenics.      It   m
much more than that.:   It ■'■ means
the science of   living,   how   to be
strong mentally, morally and physically; how to make   the   most of
one's life;  to know, what   to eat
how to take care of the body;  how
to exercise;   how   to   resfc: - It   ia
-learning to control   oue t   nerves
It is the .science   of   becoming acquainted with one's self;   to . know
how to get the : best   out  of   life.
"For life is not to live,   but
well."    I believe we havo onr lives
m om hands,* to do with   them
we please,   mentally,   morally and
physically.    It is true . we
live always, but we can live to be
three Pcorc years and ten,and proh-
ahlv more if we take care   of   oui
selves.    I am not counting ou accidents.
People.eat too much, eat too.
great.a variety,eat too often. They
indulge too freely in stimulants, do
not drink enough water between
meals, do not exercise enough, and
get too little rest.
If we.eat wholesome food, fixer
ci=l some every day, bathe often
steep from, seven, to eight hours'
eiery night,leave stimulants "alone,
and keep our minds healthy nr
can live on and on,, a .comfort to
ourselves arid everyone about us.
Nearly everyone I meet is a slave j
to the food habit. -'They say-they
cannot give iip things they like.
They would like to. exercise, they
will sleep as much as they can, but
thev want to "eat, drink, and
meiry." ''Why, what would lifej
he worth if. I could not eat what I
like? T..would sooner;diethan confine myself to a diet," is what-I
hear every day
Dieting does not mean living on
bi-eiitl arid water—Jar from it, bntj
most people shrink ;from the word,
'■'diet.'*
The-seat.of life is the stomach.
Our health depends principally on
.what.we eat. If a fireman puts
eoft, clean coal into his firebox, the
engine is. going to obey his every
wish (if the imclimeij l***; well
oiled), but if pieces of. rock, slate I
and metal are mixed   in * with the
: beginning or end of it.    About hall
an hour before a meal,drinkagh
of water, and then an  hour  after
leaning the table drink as much as
ybii wish until half an hflur before
the next meal,    Too much liquid
of any kind i> prejndiealtb digestion, because it delays'the^aetionof
the gastric jmc.es weakens the di
gestive qualities, and overtasks the
absorbents.    Cold drinks cheek digestion   by cooling the contents! of
the stomach to a degree at  which
digestion : cannot   proceed.      Few
people are aware how serious a dis
turbance even: a small quantity  of
cold'water, ice cream or any  other
cold   substance   will create when
taken into a stomach where food is
undergoing digestion, as this: pro
cess cannot be carried on at a tem
pcrature less than that of thebodj,
or about 100 degrees   Fahrenheit
If the meal is mostly composed of
dry foods, a: few sips  of   warm ot
.moderately   hot   water   might be
beneficial rather'  than   otherwise
but I would suggest that no liquid
whatever be used unless it beniilk
not iced... Milk is a food,   and in
the country we'find it much better
than.in the.large cities, ,b«t it does
not agree with everyone.    Becaii=<1
Miss A. drinks milk a.nd has.anice
complexion.   Miss   B.   goes in for
milk'.drinking,   and   presently the
whites of.her eyes -"and- her   skin
turns yellow, and she finds herself
oii the  bilious   list.    Lime   water
added to milk makes it   more   di
gestible, but I think  some   people
had better leave -milk alone  alto
getliti except i* it is used m eook
I am sure that drinking at meals
a habit, and that the mind c in
effect a cure. The habit should be
discontinued, wholly, and especially
by those - whose digestive, powers
eak. If the food is of propei
quality, and proper attention is
paid to mastication, there . will be
little inclination to eat too   much

In a long article_in Physical Culture a wiiter. describes some ofthe
beneficial effects of hbtair. and
vapor bathing In the ancient)
dai's of Greece and.Rome, he says |
tbe daily bath was considered one
of the greatest essentials of man
kind, and their public baths wer
fitted np luxuriously.     Physician
■e not needed*in those days, asai
result''of this practice.;    Not many
people comprehend why the hot-air
and vaporbaths.are so. very beneficial, biit the reason  becomes apparent to those who give  the tmb-
ject a little thought.    Every living!
person has about fourteen' square |
feet of skin to take care of,  audi
this is supplied withmorc than two!
Ilion sweat glands, having ducts,
the length of which," if placed end1
to end, would reach about two and
half miles.   Besides this, the skin
■is over six hiiridred.- thousand ie-
n,eous or oil glands. When one'
bodv is submitted to 150 or 200 de
giees of heat the pores   ire qnitkh
opened, and all   the  impurities oi
ody are thrown - off. . Those
is who are under the impres-
that the Turkish  aud Russian
baths arc one and the same thing,
e greatly  mistaken;   they  difler
ry decidedly.    The Turkish bath-
a dry, hot-air.bath, and the Rns-
ut is a steam, or vapor bath:   the
Turkish is tonic in its.effect, while
the Russian  is enervating.      The
cold bath is all right in its . place,
however, and   taken -before breakfast Forms an excellent stimulant— |

for extraordinary richness and extent
until last fall just as the winter snows
began to pile up. Up to that time,
aside from the close neighborhood of
the 'original discovery, practically no
locations had been made, and there
were few people in the district. The
consensus of all statements as to the
prospectors in the district, through the
five or six months of winter, would not
make the number average fifty for the
entire period This would 'require to
make the 7000 valid locations that each
of the filty prospectors should make
each day a valid location and sink a
shaft on it 10 feet deep. The mere
statement of such a proposition i*-?, its
refutation as an absurdity, Under the
climatic and physical conditions not a
tenth part of it ia reasonably possible,
and not more than a twentieth part of it
is probable.
A few years ago the Buffalo Hump
excitement  was on.     When,   in   the
spring following the winter of the lirst
rush in of prospectors, the clean-up of
claims was made, some freaks in loca
tions were found that Thunder mountain is very likely  to reproduce this
spring.   As in Thunder Mountain district, the winter snow  in  the Buffalo
Hump country waa deep—18 feet or so
where the mines were.    In making locations, trees projecting above the snow
were blazed and  marked  as location
and corner monuments.    If the tree
was not too big the top was cut off and
the stump was squared down into a corner post.   It happened that a locator
did this in locating a claim late in the
winter on top of 18 feet of snow.    It is|
even reported that he sold it immediately for cash, the buyer going out to
organize a company.   He had a valid
location sure, for he had himself seen
the claim  and  the properly marked
monuments on it.   Later iu the spring,
when the snow had melted down to 10
feet or so of depth, the same location
tree was seen to have another blazing,
marking and. discovery location notice
at the 10-foot snow level, antedating,
by several months, the location notice
described as posted on the tree 18 feet

under this notice naturally took possession of his own location, and to save
trouble topped off the tree just above
his notice.   It is related that he made
a cash sale before the snow disappeared
down to the ground, the purchaser go
ing out of the district with the deed in
his pocket to buy a stamp mill     In his
absence the snow all melted and ou the
same tree-stump, about four feet above
the ground, was disclosed a marking
and notice of location made In the preceding fall, clearly the original location
of tho ground.    The locator who made
this original claim then appearing, resented the attempt to jump his claim,
and to save further trouble topped the
tree stump off about 5 feet from the
ground and sold his location to a com-
pany.

cubic feet of earth or rock must be removed. The ordinary shaft, 4x4 feet
and 10 feet deep, or a tunnel 4x4 feet
and 10 feet long, complies with the law.
Sixty days from notice of discovery and
location is allowed for this.
Sinking through excessively wet
ground is made practicable, where the
effort and expense are deemed advis
able, by a set of bore holes being first
made around the proposed site ol the
shaft, two pipes being lowered down
each bore hole, one inside the other, the
outer one being closed nt the bottom
A calcium chloride solution at a temperature of 20" below freezing point C.
pumped down tho inner tube, and rising
in the annular space around it, it extracts heat'froui the surrounding strata
sufficient to freeze water therein, an
icy sheath forming around the outer
tube in each bore hole, the sheaths
growing and coalescing into a ring of
frozen matter, impervious to water,
encircling the iute of the shaft, sinking
then going on in that gigantic cylinder
of ice-bound rock. When the waterlogged strata are. passed through, an
iron lining is built up inside and the
icy envelope allowed to thaw.

It is reported that the New C.iledonia
and Sudbury nickel mines have heen
consolidated into one ownership. This
makes a practical monopoly of the (supply, and as the prosident of the United
States Steel Co. is reported to be the
organizer of the consolidation, it probably anticipates ultimate absorption by
that company, it may be assumed that
the sale price of the metal will ho kept
where it is if not increased. Tho owners of nickel claimr. should find In this
situation much encouragement to the
development of their properties.
