Ore  f  l^^^^a^s^yOo^^y^arTgl  This week a deal was made which,  it is believed, is one of the most important that has token place in the  Boundary for some time past. This is  nothing less than the acquirement by  lease of the properties, machinery and  stamp mill of the Cariboo-McKinney  Mining & Milling Co., Ltd., of Toronto, by a syndicate of Phoenix men.  The property is the well known Cariboo free gold mine, in Camp McKinney, situated some 30 miles west of  Midway.  Negotiations for .the lease have been  carried on for some months with the  officers of the company in Toronto, of  which Robert Jaffray is president, and  have only just been successfully completed. A force of men has already  been sent to the property, to put the  machinery in order and to begin pump  ing out the mine, preparatory to active  operations. The lease was secured by  Dr. R. B. Boucher, W. S. Macy, L. Y.  Birnie and A. B. Hood and associates,  A practical mining man of experience  will be secured as superintendent and  have charge of the operations to be  conducted at the Cariboo.  History of the Cariboo.  Probably no mine in the Boundary fgn  had had a more checkered career than  the Cariboo, with ups and downs the  story of which would fill several columns. It is one of the oldest claims  in the Boundary, has produced, according to official reports, more than  $1,000,000 worth of gold bullion, and  has paid more than $540,000 in dividends. Work was discontinued at the  end of 1903, on the recommendation  of the superintendent, and the more  or less extensive' underground workings allowed-to fill with wate:,. having  remained that way for something like  three years, or up to the present time,  the property, being in charge of a caretaker.  Old timers in Camp McKinney  have always -had great faith in the  Cariboo, 'up to the time of closing the  most successfully conducted property  in that camp, and the only one which  ever paid any thing back to its owners. Notwithstanding the closing of  the mine, on the adrice of those in  charge, they believed that the property still had great possibiities as a gold  producer. It is hardly necessary to  state that the few old timers who have  Stayed with the camp, with their great  fiiiih, are not a little gratified to see  operations once more being started  on the most important property of  them all.  Camp McKinney's discovery dates  back to 1884, when two placer miners,  Goericke and Runnels, came across  the cappings on the Victoria and Old  England mines. The camp, however,  takes its name from a prospector, Al.  McKinnev, who three years later dis  covered and located the croppings of  the new famous Cariboo vein, which  stood out boldly to view,.with the free  gold plainly visible within. The prop  erty was worked more or less in the  early- nineties, the Butte and Boston  Company having an option on it in  1894-5. George B. McAulay snd J.  I'. Keane, of Spokane, and who had  been operating in the Couer d'Alenes,  but were discouraged with the then prevailing low price of silver, became interested in the Cariboo, and it was I  worked more steadily, and, it is understood, with no little profit. James Mo-  noghan, of Spokane.'was at onetime  the largest owner, and it is understood  lhal his profits from the Cariboo put  him on his feet in the hard times.  The first unit of the stamp mill was  brought from the Rainbow mine, in  Washington, and it is stated that the  owners of the mine had difficulty in  raising money enough to pay the duty  on the macninery. This was soon arranged, however, as soon as the stamp  mill was started in operation. From  that time on the mine produced no  small amount of gold, for a time losing  the vein, and then finding it again after  spending thousands of dollars in the  search. Once it cost $35,000 to find  the faulted vein, but gold worth $200,-  000 was the result.  The   owning  company has   title to  seven claims in Camp   McKinney, be-  inu the Cariboo,   Amelia,    Okanagan,  Alice, Kmina,   Maple Leaf  and   Sawtooth fraction, all adjoining.  The property is fully equipped   with all   needed   Cascade,  machinery, including a ten drill   Rand   Sidley.  air compressor, hoist, pumps, 20-stamp    Keremeos.  mill,   consisting   of   lour   batteries   of   Osoyoos.  five stamps each, boilers, settlers,  con-   Carson,  centrating  tables,   etc.     A   maximum  depth of 560 feet was   attained   in the Total ....  shafts, with several   thousand   feet  of  workings at the several levels.   Official        McRae Bros.  reports covering the  last four   jears of IS����nm�� to fiet their  operation   by   the  Cariboo    company '���shape.  gave the  following interesting details:  Ore stamped and nulled, tons,  60,376  Bullion produced, oz.,  381878  Concentrates produced, tons,. .. 2,077  Total values, realized,   . . ... .$575,589  The average ore output of the Cariboo was in the neighborhood of 15,-  000 tons per year, values running from  $5.50 to $10 per too. From 40 to 50  men were employed at the property.  Munro-Dunlop Weddli(.  A quiet wedding took place on Wednesday, at 2.30 p.m., at the residence  of W. J. Prendergast, Oro Denoro,  the contracting parties being Henry  Alexander Munro, well known in Phoenix as the proprietor of the Skating  rink, and Christina McLain Dunlop  of Arnprior, Ontario, sister of Mrs.  Prendergast. The , bridegroom was  assisted by J. Stuart'Hudson, of Phoe  nix, and the bridesmaid was Miss Mary Backlund, of Medical Lake, Washington. \  After the ceremony the party sat  down to a substantial repast, after  which Mr, and Mrs. Munro left by the  C. P. R., while the mines tooted their  whistles in honor of Denoro's first wedding, to spend their honeymoon in  Spokane, intending* to take up their  residence on Gran by place, Phoenix,  on their return. Rev. C. Wellesley  Whittaker, pastor of Phoenix Methodist Church, performed the ceremony.  G. N. HAS ITS  OWN TROUBLES  To Get Coal to Haul Ore, Coke,  Etc.  Boundary Mining Notes  Impasse at Coal Strike Centre  Continues.  OCTOBER HAD  94,860 TONS  Output From Boundary-  Mines.  Months' Record Nearly  1,000,000 Tons.  Notwithstanding the troubles at the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.'s coal  mines, whence the bulk of smelter  fuel supplies for this section were .formerly secured, the ore output of Boundary mines for the month of October,  was 2,500 tons larger than it was for  the month of Septtmber. The. Sep  ternber total was^, 92,311 tons, while  October's record was 64,860 tons of  ore. The Granby sent out some 6,000  tons less than the previous month and  the Snowshoe contributed very little,  but the B. C. Copper. Co. is once more  on the list with 12,120 tons to its  credit, and Dominion Copper Co. beat  September by 1,200 tons. In detail,  the figures for the several individual  mines for October, as reported to the  Phoenix Pioneer were as follows:  MINE. TONS.  Granby Consolidated 62,335  Snowshoe         680  B. C.

Boundary Customs Receipts.  R.   Gilpin,   customs   officer  at  Grand Forks, makes the following detailed report of the customs receipts  at the various Bou,nd*jry sub-customs  offices, as reported for the month of  October:  Greenwood $5,063  Phoenix    1,868  Grand   Forks    3.296  Midway    5,551  191  ��74  23  20  4S  23  67  67  59  68  ��S  00  7'  60  .$i6,:  39 00  e^: Smith, Ltd., are he-  Holiday goods in  The present shortage of coal, due to  the existing strike of coal miners in  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.'s collieries, in East Kootenay, now in the  seventh week, is beginning to affect  the Great Northern railway, as well as  the Trail and Northport smelters, and  other smelters to some extent. '1 he  Great Northern has, it it is said, thousands of tons of eastern coke on the  road for the Granby smelter, that it  finds the greatest difficulty to haul, on  account of shortage of steam coal. In  addition, there are thousands of cars  of general merchandise tied up all over  the system for the same reason. The  coal now being used in this district  comes from ' Sand "Coulee, Montana,  but it is poor, and there is not enough  of it.  For the last week the Granby smelter has had its troubles even in hauling ore from Phoenix, because of lack  of steam coal. Last week Friday,, the.  G. N. did not take a ton of ore out of  Phoenix, and the same thing has happened this weekrf Not being able to  get even the expensive eastern coke to  the Granby smelter promptly, at one  time four of the eight furnaces were  banked or blown out, to be_ blown in  again in a few days. Six furnaces have  been running part of the time this  week.  The C. P. R. seems to be able to  get along better than the G. N. for  steam coal, probably for the reason  that the C. P. R. has a number of other sources of supply in the Kootenays  that the G. N. does not reach.  Striken SHU  Hold Out.  For eight or ten. days there were  conferences between Manager Lindsay,  of the Crow's Nest Co., and National  Board Member Burke, of the United  Mine Woikers of America, :at, Eernie,  but on Tuesday it was announced that  the negotiations did not produce a basis of settlement, and the strike still  continues.  Divested of all frills, it has practically come down to the question of  the "closed shop" or "open shop" pol  icy at Fernie, the men standing for the  former, and the management for ihe  latter, with neither willing to make  concessions. One thing seems pretty  sure, and that is that shareholders and  directors want results in the shape of  dividends, and they are not getting  them under management of G. G. S.  Lindsay, of Fernie. ' When v they get  tired of waiting, ..Mr. Lindsay will be  told, in the language of the street;  "Skidoo 23, " and a man who can sej-  cure results will succeed him. one who  can get along with the coal miners;  difficult as that task seems to be.        '  Ore is being recefved^.at the Boundary Falls smelter from the Oversight  mine on the American side.  A strike of no little importance is reported from the Mavis mine, adjoining  the Bay, and which is believed to have  the rich Bay lead.-  Monday night the building and  seven drill compressor at the B. C.  Copper Co.s Oro Denoro mine, Summit camp, was burned to the ground.  During October, 48,010 shares of  Dominion Copper were traded in on  the New York curb. High was $7.50,  low was $5.25, and last sale was at $6.  CHICAGO MEN r  AT CRESCENT..  The Mine is Steadily Looking  Better. >  Ore was sent out. from the Idaho  mine again this week, after a cessation  to permit the filling of the Dominion  avenue glory hole with waste from the  Idaho ore bins.  Last week Friday four furnaces were'  blown out at the Granby smelter, owing to the shortness of coke which  was expected from the east. .Early  this week two_ furnaces were blown in  again, and by today two more are expected to be operated, making the full  battery of eight, if eoke is not again  short.  J. A. McMaster, of this city, has  taken a bond on the Mountain Chief  group, in Franklin camp, consisting of  the Mountain Chief, Mountain Chief  fraction and Victoria claims, which  have an excel lent, copper showing. The  vendors are Patrick Maginnis, Donald  Matheson and J. C. Henderson.. The  bond is for eighteen months, and active development will be started in the  spring, the property being located near  the well known Gloucester mine.  E. H. Thruston, chief owner of the  Carmi mine, in the West Fork district,  who recently closed the property, has  given a lease and bond on the mine to  Geotge H. Williams and Julius Erlich,  of Greenwood. Mr. Williams was formerly superintendent of the B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter at Greenwood, while  Mr. Erlich is well known throughout  the Boundary. The Carmi mine is reputed to be one of the best properties  in the West Fork section, and the lessees are now equipping it with whatever additional, machinery may be  necessary, and will systematically develop the mine.    ,  Values Now Run About $ 150  v   Per Ton.  BLOWN TO PIECES  AT THE GOLD DROP  the;  Charles Hedberg Tamped  Powder Too Hard.  About midnight Tuesday Charles  Hedberg was blown to pieces at the  Gold Drop mine by a premature explosion, while his working partner,  Peterson, next to him, miraculously escaped without a scratch. Hedberg  had been working in the camp for several years, wks a young man of 25-  years and unmarried.  A round of holes had been drilled  in the drift from the tunnel, about 300  feet from the entrance, and one hole  had been loaded. The second hole  was being loaded by Hedberg, he having put in seven sticks of powder.  While he was tamping the powder  down, Peterson warned him that he  was doing it too hard and that it was  dangerous. Just then Peterson stooped to get the eighth stick, with fuse  and cap, and the explosion took place,  instantly killing Hedberg and blowing  him over Pejerson. The unfort.unate  man was badly mangled in the explosion.  Wednesday afternoon a jury was  empanelled by the Coroner A. S.  Black, consisting of the following: David Oxley, J. F. Jones, Ed. Brown,  David Speare, Angus Nicholson and  John Manning. After hearing the evidence of Peterson and foreman John  Swanson, the jury returned a verdict  of accidental death from a premature  expl: sion at the Gold 1 >rop mine  The funeral   of Hedberg was   held  Thursday afternoon under the auspices  of Phoenix   Miners'   Union   No' S, of j  which deceased was a member in good |  standing, the bunai taking place in the  Pnoenix city cemetery.  New Minister lor St. Johns.  The bishop has appointed a new  minister for St. John's church of England in Phoenix, Rev. R. A. Heath,  formerly of West Plains, Missouri. Mr.  Heath, accompanied by his wife, arrived here Thursday, and will have  charge of the church services tomorrow, at which Rev. Archdeacon Beer,  of Kaslo, will also be present and take  part. Regular services will be held at  the church tomorrow morning at 1 r  o'clock, at which Holy Communion will  be dispensed, there also being preaching services in the evening at 7130  o'clock. All churchmen and others  interested are heartily invited to be  present.  A party of eastern capitalists who are  interested in the Crescent and Preston  mines in the high grade belt, visited  Phoenix and their mines this week,  travelling in a private Pullman coach.  It consisted of Col. T. L. Dickason, of  Chicago, president of the Crescent  Mines, Ltd.; W. Ii.' McDoel, president of the Monon railway system; W.  W. Wicks, president ol the Mathers  Stone Co., of Chicago and Bloom  ington, Ind.; and E. F. Johnson, insurance, of Chicago. The car was  the private vehicle of President McDoel, and was one of the finest yet  seen in the Boundary, being fitted up  with every known convenience for travelling and living purposes.  After visiting the mines referred to,  a couple of miles below Phoenix, Col.  Dickason, who has" been in the Boundary several times previously, had the  following to say to the Pioneer man  about theCrescent mine, where development has been steadily prosecuted under W. H. Jeffrey,. M. E.:  "I am well satisfied with the work  done so farat the Crescent, and with  the showing of high grade ore made.  The main shaffhas attained a depth of  about 200 feet, the values having steadily increased from top to bottom, commencing at $30 or $40 per ton, and  now running up to $150 per ton in ���  gold and silver. The vein itself has  increased in width steadily as depth  has been obtained, and it is now about  two feet between the walls, with pay  ore from five to 12 inches in width.  "We are now seriously considering  the installation of an air compressor  plant, to be installed in the near future, but we shall continue sinking  anyway for the present, the electric -.  hoist which we have in use giving us  the best of service."  Speaking of the Preston,, almost ad-,  joining theCrescent, which is owned by  the Preston Mining Co., also of Chicago, Col.  Dickason said:  "A meeting cf this company will be  held in Chicago by the first of December, to consider means of raising more  money for development, and it is Ifk'e-  ly that work may be resumed at this  property at no distant date."  A. M. Whiteside, of Greenwood,  solicitor and treasurer of the Crescent  Mines, Ltd., and Alex. Miller, of  Greenwood, were with the party during their stay in camp. The party left  yesterday morning for Seattle, and will  visit Portland, Salt Lake and Denver  on the return trip to the east.  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS. 5  "Xuti-ior-  NAMK OFCOMI'AXV.

More than three years ago the,Pioneer, undertook the more or less formidable task of publishing an annual or  Holiday Number, fully illustrated, in  book form.    It is a matter of newspaper, history now   how   success   was  achieved with that number, from a publicity  standpoint,   if from   no other.  Each succeeding year a number of this  kind has been issued,  arid was kindly  received and liberally patronized by  those most interested in  the  upbuilding of the  Boundary district.    If the  publisher did not grow rich from these  issues, he had the satisfaction of knowing tbathis efforts to make the  Boundary more widely known were-;appreciated,   and   it    is  quite   within   the  j bounds  of reason to  state  that  the  :Boundary is better and more favorably]  known on this account.  A board of trade is being formed  the Nicola Valley.  The Bank of Montreal has opened  a branch at Summerland.  Silverton, on Slocan lake, has four  large producing mines and other shippers.  Kaslo has sent five boxes of locally  grown apples and pears to the Colonial  Exhibition which will be held in Lion-  don in December.  A proclamation appears in the B. C.  Gazette calling the attention "of all  loyal subjects to the King's Birthday,  oh November 9th, 1907 as a day of  celebration thereof.  Some time next month the C. P^ R.  expects to operate trains from St. Paul  to Spokane, via the Soo line, C. P. R'.  and the new.Spokane and, International, or Corbin line, which is just being  completed.  Hapiagror Better Fallal Service.  In a recent "public address, , Hon;  Mr. Aylesworth is reported by the^Toronto Globe as saying: "Mr. Ayles--  worth took occasion to refer to the  splendid surplus in the postofnee department, and intimated that he 'believed his Ministerial colleagues had  under careful investigation the whole  situation with the hope of giving back  to the people of Canada much of that  money in the way of better service;  better postal delivery and better salaries."  Thai's just what the people want  and expect and the sooner the policy  is adopted, the better for the people.-  Lethbridge, Herald.  Summary   of   Work   of   the  Commission.  The investigation of the zinc resources of B. C. was undertaken in response from petitions from the Silver-  gi Lead Association and the Associa-  ��� I ted Boards of Trade of British Columbia. The work was divided amongst  the most experienced men that could  be obtained and the investigation was  intended to cover the following points:  (1) The examination of the present  development of mines to determine  the tonnage of zinc ore immediately  available; its occurrence and character  and the future prospects, together with  the cost of mining. (2) Examination  of  the present   methods  of milling.  (3) Invstigation of the adaptability of  the ores to the new methods of concentration   (magnetic,    electric,   etc.)  (4) The study of conditions affecting  the marketing of the concentrates, including the question of smelting in the  province or elswhere in Canada.(5)The  investigation of the possibility of the  special utilization of the zinc ore if of  high silver content.  It was found that zinc in large com-  marcial quantities could be produced  in B.C. With respect to the occurrence  and character of zinc ores these have,  in every case, been carefully examined  and described in detail. The report  is accompanied by plates illustrating  their geological features. The future  prospects of milling are that correct  methods of treatment must be adapted  for.the different classes of ore and that  by observance of the suggestions made  Dy the commission, a stable zinc industry will be established. The cost  of mining in every possible case was  determined and amounted to $2.50 per  ton of law "material taken out in two  of the largest .mines; this sum includes  general and engineering expenses.  The proper method for milling of  each class of ore - is clearly set forth  in the report and. if closely followed  will enable these non-producers to resume operations at a profit. Several  schemes for milling .'with best appliances are also enumerated It was found  possible to produce zinc concentrate  assaying upwards of 40 per cent zinc  and sometimes.50per cent zinc. Up  to 1905 the production of zinc ore in  B. C. was approximately 11,060 tons  which . was chiefly . exported to ' the  United States. Since the'."establishment of Canadian smelting works at  Alberta, Canada has entered the , market, for these ores. .     ., '  The question of, smelting in British  Columbia or elsewhere .in Canada is  minutely treated in the report. B. C.  is the better situated because coal can  be produced for about $1.50 per ton;  one ton of ore requiring two tons of  coal for smelting. It was demonstrated that zjnc ore. smelting, is commercially fashionable in Canada. ..The report,'dealing as it'does with thev.raetar-  jurgy of zinc, is the only one of its  kind in existence and is already recognized as a high authority on these subjects The demand for.copies of this  volume has been enormous. It consists of 378 pages, beautifully illustrated with maps and pictures and with  reports by the leading .mining experts  of today.

Accordingly, about Christmas time,  the Pioneer's Fourth Annual will make  its appearance, and we believe that we  .are justified in promising a better and  .more complete  publication   than - has  yet  appeared,   even  from   the power  presses of the   Pioneer.    While  last  year, we undertook to publish  3,000  copies of the  Holiday  Number,   this  year the edition   will  be  5,000,  and  will thoroughly cover the   mining and  smelting industries of the  Boundary.  For this number  we are now   having  made scores of new half-tone  engravings,  and no effort  will be spared to  make the text as reliable and accurate  -as possible  under  the circumstances.  While this Holiday  Number will cost  more to issue than previous  numbers,  the  price of copies,   25  cents  each,  will be the same.    Those  who  desire  to secure copies will do well to  place  Jheir orders in advance, as it is next to  certain that the entire edition  will be  spoken for before the  last  form is off  the presses.  take?

Dated this 8th day of Octobe^D^  What's to prevent a retail dealer who sells a not-priced shoe  from sizing you up as a well dressed prosperous person and charge  you $6.50, or $5.50, or $4.50 for a $3.50 shoe ? Never thought of  that, did you.  What do you know about the quality cr value of a shoe?  Nothing! You can't tell whether a dealer should charge you $3.50  or $6.50. Even if you were an expert you couldn't tell, as all shoes  look alike when painted and polished. Paint and polish veneer cover  up a multitude of shoe sins.  There'*, but one way you can prevent the dealer from overcharging you. There's but one way for you to know that you're  paying the right price. That way is to buy a Slater in an authorized  and chartered Slater Shoe Store or Agency.  That store is bound by contract to sell genuine Slater Shoes and  to seO them at not one cent higher, nor one cent lower than, $3.50  and $4.00, for women and $4.00 and $5.00 for men.

Here is a bit of philosophy, from an  exchange, that is worth  reading  twice:  Do not get it into your head that  you are to slave out your life for the  sole purpose of accumulating all the  money you can possibly lay your hands  on. No, mix it up with work and rest,  making and spending, help yourself  and help the other fellow. That is  the well rounded life.

Campbell, the  business manager, in the course of his  report, had the following , to say about  the Emma Mine, Summit Camp, in  which the company has one-quarter  interest:  Emma Mine.���The :British Columbia Copper company, who own a  three-quartes rinterest in this property,  have continued in charge of the operations under their agreement with us.  There has been much disappointment in getting electrical p\>wer for operating this mine,, and it is not now  expected until November i, the power company riot being able to secure  delivery of the necessary copper wire  for transmission. Operations have  been consequently hampered, and it  was found necessary to install a temporary steam-driven compressor plant  to supplement the power from the Oro  Lenoro plant. This temporary plant  was provided by the British Columbia  Copper company from their Mother  Lode mine and their smelter, and the  cost of installation has been charged  to working expenses.      ';_  The new plant has been installed  ready for the electrical power. It consists of a 200 h. p. aioo-volt Westing  house motor, an 8xio Lidgerwood  hoist, and a compound belt-driven  Rand air compressor with Corliss  valve-gear; capacity 1400 feet of air  per minute.  The policy has been to use as much  as possible of the limited available  power upon' development work, at the  same time shipping enough ore to supply the needs of the British Columbia  Copper company's smelter and our  own. Much of the ore so shipped  was from No. 1 tunnel, .which entered  the ore body a short distance from the  shaft and has been driven altogether  in ore since, to a distance of 387 feet  from the shaft. As the tunnel was  driven the ore was extracted for the  full width of the vein excepting for  about 50 feet, where on account of the  ore containing a higher, percentage of  lime than usual, it was desirable to  leave it until shipments were increased.  The vein is about 20 feet wide until it  reaches this point, then for about 50  feet the width has not been determined, and for- the last 60 feet of the tunnel it has been from 30 to 35 feet  wide, the whole width of the vein being magnetite carrying about 1 per  cent copper, gold and silver to the value of about $1.00; 45 per cent metallic  iron^ about 15 per cent lime, and 12  per cent silica, and worth at the mine  at present about $5 per ton. Some  ore has been taken from the upper  stopes, aud about 8000 tons are broken in the stopes ready to be drawn off  into the tunnel when required. The  sinking of the shaft has been continued, and it is now 272 feet from the  collar to the bottom. No. 2 tunnel  will soon be started from a point 250  feet below the collar, giving about 90  feet vertical depth between, the two  tunnels.  The British Columbia Copper company has nearly finished extensive ad  ditions to its smelting plant which will  give it a capacity of about 1500 tons  daily, so that its requirements of Emma ore will be much increased though  the extent to which this will be the  case will depend upon the analysis of  the ores received from the other mines.  The new plant will admit of an output  of about 400 tons daily, aud I think  it probable that 50,000 tons will be  disposed of during the curreni financial year. The past year has been one  of development and equipment, and  during it the mine has very greatly increased in value, and we may now  look for regular profits from it.  Owing to various causes the proposed prospecting work on the Jumbo  claim in the Emma group has not  been done, but it is hoped that it will  not be much longer deferred.  Mountain Rose.���Our co-owners in  this claim, the Dominion Copper company, shipped to their smelter during  the year 846 tons of this ore, and  have now finished driving a tunnel  cutting the vein 50 feet below the tunnel driven by us. The ore there is  the same as above and the vein is  about 15 feet wide.  The ground under No. 1 tunnel has  been prospected by three diamoud  drill holes from the bottom of that  tunnel. One at an angle of 70 degrees  west passed out of the ore at about 20  feet, a vertical hole did the same, and  a hole at an angle of 70 degrees east  continued in ore for .10 feet, indicating  that the vein had again faulted to the  east.  - No. 1 tunnel has about 300 feet to  go to come under the most northerly  point,-where we uncovered the vein on  the surface, at which point we found  the highest gtade copper ore.  The shipments duiing the year have  been:  2079 tons to the British Columbia  Copper Company.  1025 tons to the Granby Consolidated Mining. Smelting and Power Company, Ltd.  8060 tons to the Hall Mining and  Smelting Company, Ltd.  A total of 11,164 tor.s, with a value  of $33,2*9, or an average of $4-7 7 Per  ton.  inHiefiha.p&Ru-NA  MRS. ANNA MUNDEN  , There can be no doubt about it that  the tendency to resort to surgical operations has been too great in the past and  that this harmful tendency Is growing  less every day.  Experience has demonstrated that  many ailments which soomed to require  surgical operations in the past aro now  being cured by tho  use of harmless remedies. Poruna has  done aa much as any  other remedy to establish this very Important fact.  Thousands of people have been condemned to undergo surgioal operations.  Their physicians have told them that  they moat either submit to such operational or loae their lives.  After this they have resorted to  Peruna and found relief.  Other good remedies have accomplished the same result, but it is safe to  assume tbat no other remedy has  equaled Peruna in its beneficent work.  Many of the alleged incurable derangements of the pelvis are dependent  npon catarrh.  There is no euro for these except the  removal of the catarrh,  Parana seemingly works miracles in  tome of theae cases. The explanation,  however, is very simple. Peruna re-  movaa the catarrh and Nature does the  ���eat.  Suffered Thirteen Yea * \mvti  Pelvic Troubles, . ..duie  to Find Relief.  AN OPERATION ADVOCATED.

A WOMAN^S LETTER TO WOMEN.  Mrs. Caroline Kramer, fort Collins,  Col., writes:  "The majority of women who are suffering from disordered periods and  other troubles, have suoh strong faith  in doctors that they allow them to experiment on them for kidney, liver, or  stomach troubles, until' they become  discouraged and their money 1b gone.  "This was my unfortunate experience  for nearly two years, when my attention was called to Peruna.    :���������-:  "I hardly dared believe that at last I  had found the right medicine,-but as I  kept on using it and -was finally cured  I could only thank God and take courage.  "I have had most satisfying results  from the use of your C^*vs^J~Xu^jr,rt'  medicine and have \ SATISPACTORY  advised dozens of j RESULTS FROM  women who were S PE-RU-NA.  suffering with (vwwvwmv.  woman's ills to ubo Peruna and let the  doctors alone, and those who have l"oi��  lowed my advice are better to-day and;  many are fully restored to health."

Hugh Matheson, 'a mucker boss at  the Brooklyn mine, was killed Sunday  evening about 6.30, by falling down  the glory hole, within a hundred yards  of the postoffice, dropping into what is  known as .the cow barn chute, and dying by the time he was brought to the  surface in the skip.. The glory hole is  fenced.  It appears that Matheson was perfectly familiar .with the opening of the  glory hole, where, on one side, a ladder otters a short cut into the mine.  He was evidently walking around the  edge of the hole in the dusk, when he  miscalculated and dropped down in  the mine, striking the jagged rocks,  and tumbling into the chute below,  where he was found by his men. His  head was badly crushed, and.although  the company's physician was hastily  called, the unfortunate man breathed  his last just as he was brought to the  surface.  Monday afternoon  Coroner A. S.  Black empanelled a jury, consisting of  John Melnnis,  J. A. McMaster, J. O.  Ellis,  R. D. Mitchell,  P. W.  George  and  Walter Morrison.    After hearing  testimony from  Robert Goodman, Alfred  McDonald,    Foreman  Sampson  and others  who found  Matheson, the  jury returned a verdict of death from  falling down the  Brooklyn glory hole  and into the cow barn chute.  .   Hugh Matheson  was  23  years of  ;:ge, arid  a  native of River  Dennis,  Nova Scotia.    He has been employed  in this camp for a long time, also having a brother,  Alex  Matheson,   here.
