Recent advices from* Spokane  are to*the effect that a smelter  will be erected near the North  Star and Sullivan ��� mines on  Marie creek.  A rich, strike of gold quartz  was reported la'st'weelc from'.the  Follow Me claims situate on  Perry creek.  . Prosperity in the Fort Steele  district during Lhe, past, year is  reflected by the output of the  big silver,lead mines of the district/ .  Unless all  signs  fail   the St.  Mary's   district,   will   soon   be  famous as, a large  producer of  ,   copper.  The rich ore now  coming out  of  the  Estella  mine, is a proof  "������ that    another' producing   mine  will    soon    be, ' added   to .the  South   Kast Kootenav developed  i - (. ,  mines. ' L  ,s    The situation in regard to'-the  'stock'   of the  Sullivan   mine   is  ^ noticeable, from, the   fact  that  there seems to be a cinch   game  ��� being played.      , ^  Tlie'Boulder creek mines are  just now attracting attention.    '  The   m'ning  industry  of   the  t Fort Steele district is in  a   very  prosperous condition. * .-  The construction of a road up  Wild Horse creek is causing a  revival of interest in the old  camp.  1 An expert. ' visited and  thoroughly inspected the Sullivan mines last week.  There is greater activity in  ' the district surrounding Fort  Steele than has been evident for  several years.  - Active work is in progress on  tho Star group of mines in the  mountains-east of Tanglefoot  creek.  The prospects on the Dupont  group are exceedingly bright,  tho vein is large," the chute  long, and the ore is of a payable  grade.  On   Perry  creek are located a  large number of very  promising  . gold   mines.      During   the   past  month   several   new   properties  have been staked  Fort, Steele is the center of * a  large and rich gold mining district.  Fort Steele is getting more  honor in "lhe minds of people  away from here than among her  own citizens.  Some forty or fifty men are  now engaged in developing the  Kitchener iron mines.  It is reported that a contract  for 100,000 feet of lumber for  the Sullivan mine, has. been secured by Finch & Jones.  There are at present 800 men  at work on the new railway that  is being built from Jennings to  the Boundary.  The price of-lead oh the London market is on the increase.  Sullivan stock is.down to nine  cents, somebody must have  unloaded..  Grade contracts have been  let  on Ilie Crow's Nest Southern  railway. Contractors will have  a thousand men a I, work by .September L'Oth. '������ ���    -  Jt, is slated that O. P. Hi 11 has  made a clean-up of $-10,00(1 out of  his Kitchener iron mines.

All  the  boys that were  wounded,- killed  or captured wore stripped by the  Boers, the'captured wore turned  loose at night.    The Boors  sent,  a dispatch, asking the British fo  send out two doctors, who on return i ng- reported 27)  Boers ki 11 ed  and :3.') wounded, so our boys did  not   give    up   until   they   were  knocked out.���T. .1.' tt.  u  'Applications For Placer Lease.

Jt is'-'an open question as to  whether the smelter will be constructed at Marysville. or . on  Mark creek near the mines.  An"application has been made  for 2.000 inches of- water for  smelter purposes, to .be taken  'from Mark creek,- at the lower  falls near Marysville.  'Another point fo be determined is whether the smelter  will be built this fall or next  spring.-  A number of the directors,  representing the conlroling interests in fhe Sullivan mine,  visited the property this week.  A brickyard is now being established near Marysville, and it  is said that a contract has been  made for the manufacture of  l,2;i0,000 brick.  MIMICS   IN  Till'''  ROCKIES.  Within a few utiles of Fort  Steele there is a mineral bolt on  which a large number of locations have been made. It begins  on the western slope of lhe  Rocky mountains near the international boundary, and extends  beyond the northern boundary  of the districi into North East  Kootenay. At various points  along this range of mountains  there are mining camps, which  have mining properties already  developed beyond the experimental stage and which promise  to become largo and productive  mines.  PERRY  CREEK, y"  There is no possibility of a  doubt but that Perry creek has a  large number of gold quartz propositions that are. rapidly being  developed, and that the time has  arrived when it is necessary for  machinery to place the properties on a paying,basis.  .  BADGER   AND   KKD   "MOUNTA IN.  This properly has been   systematically developed "during the  past two years.

Work  for  the  past  month   has  been confined to sinking on   the  vein.     No.   X shaft  is down 40  feet, a cross-diift at  this depth-  shows the vein lfi feet in   width.

Tho Canadian Newspaper Directory.
A.   McKini  & Co.,   Montreal,
announces the publication of the
Ihird  edition  of    this   valuable
book.    Like its predecessors the
work i.s a very complete and  interesting handbook of Canadian
( newspapers, and all that jipper-
• tains thereto.  "It i.s useful' as a
business   directory,   because   a
carefully prepared  synopsis   is
given  of each'   (own  in which a
newspaper i.s published.
The   Directory .contains com-
-, pfetc lists of newspaper towns,
arranged alphabetically,by Pro-'
viiices, with,ample details as to
tho issue, publishers /politics and
estimated circulation of each
paper. Similar lists condensed
for ready reference, a' list of
daily papers, a list of newspapers by counties and a1 classified list-showing lhe many
different 'kinds of papers pub;
lished in'Canada make this a
thoroughly complete newspaper
One of the best features of fhe
work is a sot of special maps of
the different Provinces, showing
only the towns in which papers
are published., These maps are
enclosed in a convenient envelope
instead of being bound in the
book as formerly, which, makes
Iliem more ' convenient to
handle. - '       -    '
Tho publication of this Newspaper Directory every alternate
year is certainly a commendable
enterprise* on tho part of nMel-Tim's      Advertising '  Agency,'
.which -seems'to ,. be very progressive and up td'date in every
respect.   ■  ■ ■'
/    God Leads Us'
.In-the valley of Norway the
bird-lover caged the young in
th,o nesl, and' kept the'birds'in
prison'until the days, in August,
when all,, the'"'Norwegian birds
were moving southward. Until
later days when the woods were
silent, at least, searching, every
thorn hedge, without' finding a
trace of a migrating bird, the
scientist returned home to'say
that when the storm had passed
ho would release the birds' that
now  were left without a guide.
One sunny morning in October,
when he felt sure that they could
make their way in safety south,
-he took them to the top of a
high hill, to see whether the
homing instinct ' would<•,. guide
them. ■ ,
■ For an hour they fluttered
about in the trees, but ,'they
wanted" not food, for they had
been fed. They were taking
their bearings. Then they rose
into the air, and then, straight
as a bee line, following the homing instinct, they ^started toward
the soft, southern climes of Italy
, and north of Africa, and through
the trackless < air these lone
wanderers were not lost, for
when another spring came, lo!
one morning with his glass the
scholar saw two of his birds, the
silver thread gleaming about the
foot, Hitting about on the
orchard grass of the June morning, back in their old home.'
Is Clod and nature so kind to
the little birds, and so harsh to
the soul, big with eternal hopes,
following its instincts, as did
brave Socrates, out into the
night and the storm?
