The free milling gold belt, on  Perry creek, continues,to attract  considerable attention,.    '  The North Star mine continues to send out 1,000 ions of  silver-lead ore,monthly.  From all present indications a  bright   future    lies   before,, the  Fort Steele district.  The construction of the Crow's  . Nest Southern railwaj' will commence September 20ih.

Considerable' outside:, capital  . has' already been employed in  connection with the mining industry of the 'Port -Steele dis-'  trict, but much more .is needed  for the more extensive develop-  ' nient of- its enormous mineral  resources.  The opinion'is general that it  will be well for the legislature  to avoid tinkering with' the mining laws] for the less frequently  they are altered the greater  security felt by those '.investing  capital in the industry.  During the past month'a large  number of mining experts' have  visited' this district.  A   recent strike  of  rich gold  quartz  is  reported   from   Perry  , creek.  Transportation with the  Windermere district has been  the serious obstacle to its development.  LI. is estimated that the St.  Eugene- mine alone produced  18,000,000 pounds in lead during  11)00.'  The current year bids fair to  see a still larger increase in the  production of silver lead in this  district.  The large iron deposits of the  ' Fort Steele   district   are being  thoroughly prospected.  Tins Puospectoii is doing-  excel lent work, in its endeavors  to give information relating to  mining in South East Kootenay.  The Fort Steele district is un  doubtedly a promising field for  mine investors.  The mineral outcroppings in  this district are numerous and  carry as a rule exceptionally  high values in gold, silver-lead  and copper.  The immediate construction of  the north and south railway is a  practical assurance that the  mines situated in the main range  of the Rocky Mountains will be  developed and placed on a  shipping basis.

I was on   leave 'when  Spanish-American war broke out  and together, with sevoral  other  officers was immediately ordered  back  to duty.

When a man goes  into a hotel and finds something  on I ho table which does not suit  hi in, ho does not get up and raise  hades with "the landlord and tell  'him lo slop his darned old hotel.  Well, hardly. He sets Hie dish'  ' 10 one side and wades into some  ' of the many dishes that do suit  him. Jt is different with some  newspaper readers. They find  an article that does not suit them  exactly and, without stopping to,  think that it may please  hundreds.of other readers, make  a grand stand play of their'  supreme assinity, and hasten to  stop'their paper. ��   .���  ,  All He Has to Do.  The editor of a country newspaper has' no business to make  mistakes; -f has ���_nonbusiness to  oven get'anything^in' his paper  that people do not like. He  ought to know just what would  suit each individual,"or he ought  -lb take 'each1 item, before it is  published ' and let the ��� person  whom it concerns censor it. An  editor has plenty of time to do  all this, and all he has to do, is  to hunt news and clean ' rollers,  set type, clean the lloor, pen  short items, hustle for advertising, fold papers 'and write  wrappers,, talk to, visitors and  distribute type, road proof and  correct mistakes, dodgo.tho.biHs  and dun delinquents, and take  cussing, and'loll the subscribers  that he needs money..
