HOTEL KEEPERS  ARE ORGANIZED  Have  "We expect to build a new smelter j ciding on initial steps for the extensive  in the Boundary at an eatly date," said  Mr. Samuel Newhouse, Wednesday to  the Pioneerman. "The present smelter which the Dominion Copper Co.  owns at Boundary Falls, recently, acquired in a deal for the 'Ipntreal &  Boston mines, is not adapted for econ-  omical operation. It has no ore bin  room, "or coke bin room, and is lacking  in room for, a slag Jump. The"slag  dump room should be sufficient to last  25 years At least in building a smelter.  We have not yet decided where the  smelter will ��be constructed, but it is  likely to be either  at  Greenwood   or  operations which the company is about  to undertake here.  When asked as to when active operations at the properties were to be  undertaken, Mr. Newhouse said : "Inside, of ten days, systematic development will be under way at the Brooklyn, Stemwinder and Rawhide mines,  and we shall employ just as large a  force as we can "to advantage. Con  siderable work must be done before  the properties are ready to maintain  an output of 1,000 tons of ore per  diem, the amount which we expect to  ship when our preparations are all completed. This means the deepening of  the Brooklyn shaft, and extensive work  at the Stemwinder and Rawhide,  the  Midway, inducements being offered by j ^tter   being,   of course,   a quarrying  ,        '.1 '      "���������   -��� ���       J-1 proposition.    -  both places. . , j     Referring   to   the   new   machinery  Mr;Newhouse is Ahe.man.tgingdi-fequipment which it has been fully de-  rector  of the Dominion Copper Co.,  cided to install, Mr. Newhouse said :  "We shall not decide on this equip-  Dead Beats   Will   Not  Easy Time.

The visit was for the purpose  of looking over the properties, and de-1  ment for a few weeks yet at least, and  of course it will take some time to  manufacture and install it. About the  first of September I ;shall send.a competent-engineer here; Mr. Gerald B.  Street, who will make a complete survey of the .'company's properties, der  ciding the strike of the ore bodies, etc.  Then we will know^where to install  the large central plant.'from which the  several mines will get the necessary  power. To make 1 His, survey will ��� re  quire a-little time^:and when it is completed, the. directors''-: will decide just  what-will be done."-   .  May Operate the Present Smelter.  "It is possible," continued Mr. New-  house, "that we may decide, after considering everything, to blow in the  present smelting plant at Boundary  Falls and operate for a short time���a  few months-���for you know we must  study our ores and determine the best  smelter practice of treating the same.  As I s;.y, there is impossibility of our  doing this.;---. In; any &^hf, how-ever^we  have practically decided to build a new  smelter to treat our ores at a point yet  to be determined."  It is understood that the company  is ready to spend-a million dollars in  the Boundary.  ;: Senator Miller stated that all details  of the transfer from the Montreal &  Boston has beerrcompleted, and that  ample capitaljis in the treasury for all  purposes to "carry out the extensive  programme outlined by the directors.  A meeting of the board is to be held  on their return to New York, when the  head, office will be transferred from  Toronto to New York, and a number  of important matters settled.'  Morris Untermeyer, a member of  the -legal firm above referred to, and  himself counsel for the Dominion  Copper Co.,stated that the members of  the parly were greatly pleased with the  company's properties which they had  examined. They had matters now in  shape where they had plenty of money  to' spend on them, and they intended  to spend it to the best possible advantage; and with the least possible delay.  The party left over the Great Northern Wednesday, intending to visit the  Portland Exposition before . returning  east. '  Dellthtcd With the dranby.  This week George F. Peck, of Grand  Rapids, Mich., was a visitor here, on  his way to the Portland Exposition.  Mr. Peck is a shareholder in the Granby Co., and stopped.at the smelter before coming to Phoenix. Here he was  shown over the mines by Supt. Smith;  To a Pioneer man he expressed himself as simply astonished at what he  had seen of the company's operations,  which he said were away beyond what  he had imagined j although he is 3 regular reader of the Pioneer. He was  particularly impressed with the economy with which ore was extracted and  treated at the smelter, and left on  Wednesday feeling. that the visit was  well worth while, and that his investment was an excellent one.  Mr. Peck, who is a prominent grocer  in the Michigan city, was accompanied  by a friend, Henry F.Walch, a gentleman who enjoys the distinction of having been a United States court stenographer for more than 40 years���one of  the oldest in the service���-having used  the first typewriter that was invented.  All Over the Boundary  BRING SUIT  FOR $17,440  Munroes Against Montreal &  Boston.  Latter Will Bring a Criminal  Action.  In connection wi'h the visit this  week of the officials of the Dominion  Copper Co. to Phoenix, a prelty legal  fight is brewing between Munroe &  Munroe and H. T. Pemberton of the  Montreal & Boston Consolidated, and  the officials of the Dominion company,  which assumed certain liabilities of the  former company in taking over the  properties. In an interview in the  Spokane Spokesman-Review this week,  Maurice Untermeyer is quoted as follows :  "There is a serious legal question in  connection with the company's affairs  as they now stand," said Mr. Untermeyer, who is general couirsel' for the  company, "and you may quote me as  follows : We found that certain employes of the former company, who  were representing the company in a  fiduciary capacity, have been dipping  their hands into the treasury. An action for accounting has been commenced against one H. T. Pemberton.  Actions for accounting will be taken,  against these parties and criminal proceedings instituted. A. M. Whiteside  of Greenwood, is the company's local  attorney and has these matters in hand.  No efforts will be spared to bring these  people to book."  Suit has already been commenced  by Munroe & Munroe against the  Montreal & Boston for the sum of  517,449, which evidently the new officials of the Dominion Copper Co. have  declined to pay. There is no douht  but that Mr. Untermeyer will fight this  suit to the bitter end, and if he carries  out his intentions there will soon be  other actions at law pending, with interesting developments to follow. The  new company's operations, however,  will not be affected in the least. Warner Miller and Leopold Herrmann,  both of New York, are president and  secretary, respectively, of both the  Montreal '& Boston Consolidated and  the Donvnion Copper Co.  J. A. Morrin returned to Midway  Tuesday,. taking with him Alex.  Strachan and a crew of four carpenters  to. erect the firm's new store building  there.  Rev. C. Wellesley Whittaker, went  over to Rossland Tuesday to attend  the annual financial district meeting of  the Methodist church, and will be  there till Monday next.  W. T. Choate, C. P. R. agent at  Eholt, is acting as dispatcher at Nelson for three months. E. H. Trethe-  way, relieving agent, is at Eholt in Mr.  Choate's place.  Pa'rick Welch, the railway contractor, was in the city this week. He has  recently received a $2,000,000 contract  on the Alaska Central railway, and has  sent his brother, Martin Welch, to that  icy country.  W..-H. P. Clement, of Grand^Eorks,  has been appointed county court judge  of Kootenay, vice Andrew Leamy,  deceased.  Mrs. B. F. Petch"died at her home  in Greenwood last week Friday, after  an extended illness, having been in the  hospital for some months.  At the meeting of the Boundary  Creek license commissioners, held at  Midway last week, no new licenses  were granted, those having applications  in withdrawing them. Several trans  fers, however, were passed favorably  upon.  Last Saturday night John Mitchell,  dairyman at Eholt, committed suicide  by shooting himself at his home. He  had been drinking quite heavily and  became despondent Mrs. Mitchell  was absent at the time but returned  on Sunday. Monday Dr. Kingston,  coroner, of Grand Forks, was in Eholt,  but decided that an inquest was unnecessary, under the circumstances.  Mitchell had resided at Eholt for  several years.  Sketch lor New City Hall.  Mayor Rumberger and Aldermen  Brown, Marshall and Carson were present at this week's meeting of the city  council. A bill of $6 from the Rossland Engineering Works was paid, and  one of $26 from the Phoenix General  Hospital, for care of James Hicks, was  turned down, it being claimed that  Hicks was not a city patient.  Trades License Amendment by-law  was read a second time, and a sketch  by H. A. Wright for a new city hall  was submitted to the council. The  mayor was requested to consult with  Mr. Wright further and secure plans  for the new building for approval. An  estimate of $4,000 for tts cost has been  made.  Last Wednesday a party of four  Chicago gentlemen completed ah examination of the properties of the  Chicago British Columbia Mining Co.,  which are located in Skylark camp,  about two miles and a half from Phoenix. In the party were John Gerts,  vice-president of the company, who is  a piano manufacturer; Nic Kuhnen,  treasurer, a wagon manufacturer; Theo.  T. Mueller, in the employ of the city  of Chicago, and Louis Warneke, a  prominent business man in the Windy  City. They were met here by Harry  H. Shallenherger, the manager of the  company, who showed them over the  property.  On their return the visitors expressed  themselves as more than pleased with  the resullt of the development thus far  at the high grade mines of the company. They had never been in the  Boundary-before, and stopped off here  while out west on a trip to the Portland Exposition. Mr. Gerts, who last  year erected a building in his home city  that cost $200,000, stated that the  visit was a most interesting one to him,  and he was glad to have been able, to  see the company's mines. .  i, The ground owned consists of the  Lake, ldola, Yellowstone fraction,  Creicent fraction and Don Pedro, 177  acres in all. Considerable work has  been done on the Lake claim, where  there is a 165 foot shaft, with crosscuts  and good ore. But lately the work  has been going on at the Don Pedro,  whereore is being stoped from a 96  foot drift in the 80 foot shaft that is  expected to give better than $100 per  ton in gold, silver and copper. A  shipment to.-the smelter will soon?-be  made.  WILL BE READY  IN SIX MONTHS.  The Skylark was among the high  grade.shipping mines this last:week,cvF|  A car of ore "was hauled' from tbe  Mavis this week for shipment to "the  smelter.

It is reported that more than $7,000  was realized from a two car shipment *  from   the   Providence   mine  recently,  or an average of over $ 190 per ton.  On the Gold Bug the tunnel is now  in about 330 feet, being driven by  days labor since the 30b foot contract  was completed by Martin McHale.  Last week a .Byron & Jackson centrifugal pressure electric pump was in-  " ~  stalled at the 400 foot level of the Old  Ironsides   mine   by Electrician Lane.  The pump is operated   by a  75-h.p.  Westinghouse motor, and has a capa-   '  city of 306 gallons per minute against    ���  a 500 foot head.    It was furnished by;  :  the Canadian Fairbanks Co., Ltd.

SHORT STRIKE IN  THE CROW'S NEST  But  New  Rev. E. P. Flewelling, formerly vicar  of the Church of England in Phoenix,  but who has spent the last two years  in Dawson, is reported to have accepted the rectorship of the Church of  England in Greenwood.  Mrs. W. B. Willcox left for Seattle  Tuesday, where she will visit her  mother and afterwards take in the  Portland Fair. She was accompanied  by her little daughter Elizabeth.  A. H. Sheppard returned this week  from a five weeks' prospecting trip in  the Cascade range. He located half a  dozen golden and silver claims about  40 miles northeast of the head of Butte  inlet, and may return to that country.  He left yesterday for Spokane to place  his two boys in school.  Chief Engineer J. H. Kennedy, of  the V., V. & E., went out on the Gt.  Northern Thursday, bound for Ottawa,  where he will appear before the railway commission on August 29th. He  made the trip from Princeton to Phoenix in a little over two days, using  special teams most of the distance.  Chief Engineer Hoagland, of the Great  Northern, is continuing on through the  Hope mountains.  Three.    Compartment  Granby Shaft.  J. P. Graves, general manager of  the Granby Co., came up from Spokane Thursday with Mrs. Graves and  Supt. Hodges, and will return probably  today. While here Mr. Graves went  over the company's mines with Mr.  Hodges and Mr. Smith, and discussed  further enlargements and improvements  for the properties.  He stated that the new three compartment shaft will be completed in  about six months, in time for the installation of the extensive head works  equipment, for which specifications are  now being prepared and tenders invited. Meanwhile the exploration of  the 400 foot level is steadily going on  with crosscuts and drift=, and the  winze from the 300 foot to the 400  foot level is also being steadily sunk  to the 500 foot level, some distance of  this incline being already attained,  Latest Prices la Metals.

Last Saturday the miners employed  by. the*;Crow's .Nest Pass Coal Co., at"  Fernie, '��� Michel and Morrissey, qtlit  work at the tall of President Sherman,  of the United Mine Workers of America, the reason given being that the  company had repeatedly broken the  explicit agreement made but a few  months: ago. Blacksmith's wages had  been cut, among other things.  Supt. Drinnan, however, met a committee of the miners, and agreed to  their requests until the return of General Manager Lindsay, who is now  away on a trip to England, when the  entire matter will be gone over by both  parties.:  Considerable concern was felt lest  the strike might be extended, and  again affect the smelters of Kootenay  and Boundary in the coke supply, and  thereby cause a shut down of the  metalliferous mines. This danger,  however, has been averted lor the  present, and it is believed that the  matters in dispute will be satifactorily  arranged.   ���  Granby officials have found it necessary this week to have men watch  the bush fires from the Bonnington  power line right of way. Thursday a  hose line was stretched from the compressor building, as a matter of precaution. The fire that has been burning in Skylark camp for some weeks, is  working up this way and doing much  damage to standing timber.

If there is a place in the different  minings sections of British1 Columbia  that has made more substantial, steady,  reliable progress in the lait five years  than Phoenix, we have yet to hear of  - it. We had what'is commonly known  as a-boom^hefe some' years ago, and  we experienced the settling down���to  say nothing-of settling up���time that  followed it.- -We know exactly- what  that sort of -thing means, and having  tried both we are "satisfied that the  good old method of natural growth is  the most satisfactory, in the long run,  to all-concerned.  But do the residents of this little  city,' situated nearly 5,000 feet among  the clouds, realize what nature has  done for them in its entirety? We  think we do, sometimes, but the  chances are. that we fail to grasp its  full significance���to understand what  it means for; the years to come. We  have all heard the stories of our large  mines,. again and again. Some,of us  have seen them and examined them,  and yet failed to appreciate their lasting worth as an industrial backing for  decades to come' to the country in  general. ' *     '  In all communities there are, and always will be, individuals who are unable to make, good, no matter how  favorable the conditons may be. Such  people have resided in Phoenix-. But  the "man"who mixed sufficient capital  with his brains, in'a business' way, in  Phoenix has made a is'uccess of it; as'  he always .does wherever he may casi'  his lot.  What is needed is the greater cultivation of the Phoenix spirit���the belief that we have the backing that will  some day make this one of the most  famous and prosperous mining' camps  in the west. The handwriting is on  the wall, and it cannot be evaded,  whatever we, in our humble opinion,,  may think about it.  Phoenix has a clima'e second to  none. The summers and autumns are  all that could be desired, not too warm  or too cold. The winters are sometimes a trifle long, but when it comes  to comfort, the mercury is usually from  ten to twenty degrees higher here i'n  winter than in other places in the district And then, we get some value  out of our winters, for we have enough  of them so that winter sports can be  enjoyed to the full���which is one of  the compensations for their length.  Residents of Phoenix have much to  be thankful for, and they should show  it by always saying a good word for the  place, by patronizing home institution.'  whenever possible���in this way showing their faith in the.ultimate greatness  and importance of the place, which is  now settled beyond peradventure.  Cultivate the Phpienix spirit.., 1  ,.  .buncan Ross, M.P., on his return  from Ottawa, immediately proceeded  to stir things up through the 'columns  of his paper, the Greenwood Times.  Mr. Ross made certain charges against  the Boundary Creek license commissioners and against. George A. Fraser,  M.L.A., in connection therewith. As  to their truth or "falsity we are not  authoritively informed, and doubtless  the gentlemen interesled will be able:  to take care of themselves',, and in due  time it will be.known, how little or how  much ground there was for the charges.  Buf in the meantime, stories come  from the Okanagan which place Mr;  Ross 'himself in anything, but a favorable light before the electors who sent  him ,to Ottawa. If the tales are true,  Mr. Ross has some explaining to do  himself, and it remains to be seen  whether he can do it to the satisfaction of his constituents, especially  those resident in or near Penticton.  A: H. Wade, postmaster at Penticton, had'been a faithful servant of the!  postoffice department, we are told, for  twenty years, and has recently been  dismissed from the service. This was;  done' in spite of the fact that out of a'  possible 125 signatures', 115 of them  were put down petitioning Mr. Wade's  retention in office. Mr.t Wade's official, superiors are free to" testify to his  faithfulness, integrity and general fitness for .the positidh. Not a word has  been breathed as to his dereliction of  duty. He was merely dismissed, and  that was all there was supposed to be  to the matter.  Whether the dismissal was because  Mr. Wade had moved the postoffice  from his old building to a new one���a  move approved by the postoffice department���or whether he did not see  eye to eye in politics with Mr. Ross, is  not stated openly. The average man,  however, will incline to the latter as the  real cause, and residents of Yale-Cariboo generally, will begladltoJiearwhat  Mr. Ross has to say about the matter.  j STRICTLY BUSINESS  Write advertising as though you expected it to be-believed.  j .    ��� .'      ���     ���    ���  ���   The better  a  man  advertises   the  more he will be able to advertise.  *���--���*  ,   The  danger  of'"over advertising  is  much less than that, of under-advertis  ing.  *  If there's anylhing in your stoie you  think people ought to buy, tell them so  and tell them why.

Parke Charming, president of the  Tennessee Copper Co:,, was a visitor in  l'hoenix last Saturday, heing .accom  panied by J. E. McAllister,-superintendent of the;Biitish Columbia Cop'-'  per Co.'s smelter at Greenwood. Mr.  McAllister had charge of theTenne  see Copper Co., previous to accepting  his present position, more than two  years ago. Mr. Charming also visited  the properties of the'British Columbia  Copper Co., and she smelting, works of  the Granby Co. at Grand Forks.  In the last few yeais the Tennesee  Copper Co. has forged to the front as  a producer of copper, Last year above  S,000,000 pounds of refined copper  were produced by the company, this  year it is likely to be about 10,000,000  pounds, and next year, owing to improvements and enlargements, it is expected to be close to 20,000,000. The  company's mines and smelter are  located at or near Copperhill, Polk  county, Tennessee, and emplcy abom  70b men. The mines are developed  to a depth of some 600 feet, and have  nearly 3,000,000 tons blocked out, the  ore being low grade, running from z"/a  to 4% copper. The smelting plant  was designed by Mr. Channing, and  consists of three water jacket blast  furnacas,'with a capacity of some 1,500  tons of ore daily. The company operates its own line of railway from mines  to smelter, which are close to the state  line of Georgia.  Mr. Channing was much interested  with what he saw of the practice of  mining and smelting in the Boundary,  of which he had previously heard a  good deal.'  COLEMAN'S RECORD COAL OUTPUT.  International   Mine  Ships Fourteen Hundred  Tons Saturday.  Coleman's big coal mine made a  great record for its.'lf Saturday, surpassing all previous figures for a day's  output by a single shift, says the Frank  Paper. The output amounted to 1400  tons, all of which was taken by the C.  P.R. This was done without in any  way robbing the mine, as with each ton  of coal taken out more ground is being  opened up, so swelling the reserves of  the property. The company is exceed  ingly pleased with the way things are  going at its mine, and Manager Galer  states that were three shifts working an  output of 3000 tons of coal per day  could be maintained with equal ease.  In addition to the coal being shipped, there is a certain quantity being  handled daily through the coke ovens,  the output of which is sent to British  Columbia points. . With the new cok  ing seam being opened, the company  is preparing plans for the early con  struction of 100 additional coke ovens  giving a total of upwards of 200.  These when finished will be worked to  the limit.  The situation at Coleman is steadily  improving and there is every ��� assurance  that  the  town has a prosperous  future.

'PHONE NO. 14. rl '  The Greenwood Times remarks that  no one has yet signified his Intention  of starting a daily' paper at Midway,  although one 'paper, the' Star,: is now  in' the field, to say nothing of the re-  port".ihat another one will soon appear,  af complete second newspaper plant  being now on the^way: ���'  .-..���1  ���   , -'-.��� "V "  Midway will doubtless be  a good  field for one weekly paper, but when  it comes to a second one, why lhat is  crowding the mourners a trifle. The  promotors of the new weekly must  have-an idea that newspaper publishers  enjoy a bed of roses; that money comes  easy to the man who drives the quill,  and that, therefore, they wiil make an  effort to secure a share of it in the re  juvenated' railwaystgwn. 1 $ Theyi.may  need! the money, but if so, they are  taking the longest and haidest way to  get it. Ask any publisher in the Boun  dary about it. As to a daily, the publishers of both the Greenwood Times  and the Grand Forks Gazette could  give some heartfelt pointers along this  line,  both of those papers having tried  the experiment to their financial cost.  ������  ���Sam Coulter, who has become.famous in Nelson because he was the bone  of contention, as fire" team driver, be  tweeh Mayor .John Houston and a  majority of the city council, is once  more'at his old work. It is, perhaps,  needless to remark that the doughty  John, has been out of the city for a few  weeks. On his return municipal  affairs in Nelson are more than likely  to assume their wonted liveliness���and  Mr. Coulter may be discharged for the  tenth time. Later.���Mr. Coulter has  filially cut the knotty problem by   re  signing:  ���  It has been remarked in Phoenix  lately that more important parties of  mining men from the east have visited  the Boundary this year than ever before'in the history of the country.  Which is another way of saying that  men of means are awakening to the  really "excellent "opportunities here for  the legitimate investment of capital.  The  best "days  of tlie Boundary are  undoubtedly'right aheid of us.  ��� m  According to the  nomenclature  ol  the west 22 good Indians were made  a few days ago near Spence's   Bridge,  on  the main line of the C.P.R., when  that terrible landslide came down and  overwhelmed the little  Indian   village  nestling  at" the 'foot of that particular  mountain  tss  The Golden Star "asserts that ''The  Phoenix Pioneer is boosting that place  as a summer resort;-" and comments  that "Phoenix would make a better  cold storage." Come, now, Peck, we'll  wager some - of' our delinquent subscribers against an equal number from  the Golden printing palace, that official records will'show that for the last  year, or last five yeais, the' average  temperature in Phoenix has been lower  in summer and higher in 'winter than  in any other town in the Kootenays on  theCP.R.  Don't overlook the fact that the  Phoenix Pioneer makes a specialty of  fine job work���the kind that you,  mayhap, have been looking for.  1-Jarry H., Shalleriberger.tlie subje t  of this Little Biography, was   born   at  Brownsville, Penn'., near Pittsburg, on  February 13, 1867,?'and  started**west  when 13 years of age, living for a  few  years; at  Streator,". 111. ��� In   1882   he  struck out for the  far   west,   reaching  Spokane, in the -neighboring  state of  Washington, in   that'" year,   where   he  followed the calling of contractor  aiVd  builder-for'eight or ten years.  ������ In common with many  Spokaneites  he hadjieard much of British' Columbia, and in 1893 he decided to try his  fortunes in' the   mining   districts.:  In  the siirhmer of that   year  he  reached  what is  now 'the   Boundary 'country;  having: previously prospected over  the  ground where   R'o'ssland  now  stands.  The  party which'he organized to visif  the Bouiridary^country consisted7of R.  G. Mack, who later   located   the   well  known Athlestan mine   in  Wellington  camp.1   Bruce WBile,  of the  Slocan  Star  mine,~ and J. C. Hass,   M.   E.,  who joined the Shallenberger party at  Christina lake.    They came over  the  "Dewdney trail to the Boundary   prop  er,   there  being   no  railways,   wagon  roads or other   trails" in   those  days,  having to cut out the   Dewdney   trail  all the-way from   Rossland   to   Boundary creek, i The party ' stopped   first  at Boundary Falls, rwhere   the smelter  is riow located,   that  being the only  settlement in this section at that time.  Before this Mr."WHite  left and  went  back to the Slocan.  The first location made by Messrs  Shallenberger, Mack and Haas was the  Crescent, two miles from Greenwood,  in Providence camp, this being in Au  gust, 1893. This claim is now owned  and operated by Mr. Shallenberger and  Col. T.. L. Dickason and associates,  of Chicago. The Crescent is one of  the several high grade properties of  this camp, that .have recently come to  the front, and has several hundred feet  of development work done, Mr. Shal  lenberger being in immediate charge,  It has three shafts, ranging from 16 to  125 feet in depth, with some crosscut-  ting, and having ore that runs $100  in gold, copper, silver and lead. Ore  is being shipped to the smelter this  week from the Crescent.  Mr. Shalienberger also located several other promising properties among  whi?h are the Yellowstone fraction, the  Crescent fraction and the Idola,, in  1895, which, wilh other claims, he  sold to the Chicago British Columbia  Mining Co., in-i9oi.;These claims are  now also being developed under the  supervision of Mr. Shallenberger, with  most encouraging results. :The main  shaft on the property is down 165 leet,  with 100 feet of crosscuttjng, with considerable ore, a' 20-foot" vein having  been encountered in sinking, with copper and gold values. The proptrty has  a-goo'd machinery equipment, and work  is being carried on farther up the hill  on the Don Pedro where, in a 90 foot  drift from an So-shaft a good Udge has  been found, and from which a ship  ment will shortly be made/"  Mr. Shallenberger is known as a  cartful and conservative mining man,  who has taken advantage of his opportunities to study the mineral zones of  the Boundary thoroughly. He' lives  at the Crescent mine with his wife and  child, where good bunk and boarding  houses have been erected.  Miss Msria Dachartno, 182 St. KUzo-  ��eth street, Montreal, Can., writes:  " "I im satisfied that thousands ot  women suffer because they do not  realize how bad they, really need treat*  ' ment and fool a natural dolioacy in consulting a physician.  7- '-I felt badly for years, had terrible  'pains, and at times was unable to attend  to my dally duties.
