But it will'all bear repeating.  There are innumerable prospects, as well as several valuable  properties, located on the east  side of the Kootenay river ou  ' which satisfactory showings of  ore have been obtained.  Tt  is  probable that active development work will be inaugurated soon at the Tiger and Poor-  ���man   claims,   'situated   at'Wild  Horse creek.

Cheerful news com on from the  North Star mine. There, are  about 70' men employed at the  mine, and the reports are to the  effect that the mine is looking  extremely, avcI!.  Increased activity is noticed in  mining circles. The owners of  prospects and mines are developing rapidly. The advance guard  of capitalists and mining promoters will soon arrive.

It  has seen the time when its population numbered 3,000, and while  its present population is about  700; this decline'has been chiefly  due., to inadequate means of  'transportation, and in no small  degree to unwise mining- legislation: but in . no" degree  can it be attributed to a. failure  of ore; for millions in-gold have  ���J v  been' taken out, in the past, and  the'auriferous gravel is at present being worked at a profit by  modern appliances, and there is  every probability of partially  developed quartz mines, of high  and low grade ore. soon to become producing mines.  Wild Horse creek- Hows by the  south eastern limit of Steele. Dhe  quartz and placer,mines are four  miles from town, yet within a  distance' of not more than two  miles are a considerable number  of properties lhat.with development will become producing  mines.  From Fort, Steele north to  Sheep creek a distance .of 40  miles,- on the east side of fhe  Kootenay river, ,the range of  mountains are heavily- mineralized, every ledge carrying fair  values^ interspersed with a num.-  ber of partially developed mines.  Sixteen miles south of ' Fort  Steele are the immense iron deposits on Hull river consisting  of over 40 locations, the ore  body is large carrying hematite  ore that will average from ."iii to  ()">% iron. Between Bull river  and Steele are situated a considerable number of mines in  various stages of development  carrying gold, silver, lead or  copper ore.  Tho quantity of undeveloped  mineral wealth in this section  cannot be estimated. Ln and  around Fort Steeie we have a.  mineral zone that i-; practically  one large mining district extending a promise of great future  wealth.  Take it all in all, few localities  in British Columbia, offer lb'.the  prospector and the investor as  good opportunities for ./.'making  money as is presented in the  mining district tributary to Fort  Steele.

The  large arc-aft of placer ground, already   taken   up.   and Ihe active  Avorking of old abandoned claims  would   seem   lo indicate that we  are on the eve of a large and important movement in  the   development   of  one  of  the most important factors in   the  progress  of fhe district.  x      -y       A  A well founded rumor that an  English syndicate is seeking an  option on large iroir deposits in  this district, demonstrates the  fact thai Southeast Kootenay is  rapidly coming to the front as  an important mining region.  Now thai the sprinir has fairly  opened out and the prospector is  now able lo begin hi.-s work, new  and important discoveries will  be made and the inv.-stor or capitalist- will come to 'hi- district  to     look     for     investments     in  . mineral properties: ho will find  that more actual development has  taken place during the past year  than.during all   previous  years.  .Valuable discoveries'  have   been  made,yon   Wild   Horse creek.- oh'.I  ihe St.- Mary's, Moyie river  and  lake,   \iuid   on   the,   rivers   ancl  creeks contiguous to thatportioh  ���of   lho,district   north   .ofdFort  Steele.       ���    ���    "'��������� ''..' .

The     decorations-    at    Marlborough Mouse lire so   arranged.  1hat after dark it will be'possible  to use'them 'for illuminations.   A  beautiful arch'of cut crystal,   in  the .form' of  a .branch of laurel  leaves, has been erected over the  gates.    Tho crystal is of various  natural tints, and is, so to speak,  'jewelled with ruby berries.   Rising from the, center of   the  arch  is a crystal medallion  beside the  Carter  and   the motto   of  that  ancient,    order."'     The    King's  cypher appears in the .center  of  the medallion and is surmourned  by the royal crown and lion.  "   Over "the   entrance   to   York  J l-Touso, in   Ambassadors" Court,  "there has been arranged' a  huge  Prince of Wales'* badge  of cut'  ^crystal.    Running1 out from it on  either-side are. scrolls  of  amber  illuminations.'. An oval-cut  crystal    medallion   'surmounts   the  badge   and    shows   ihe    King's  cypher and cVosyu in lho  center.  On i he-western Irontage of  that  part of St   .lames', palace   which  is  York   House  a, large crystal  shield   and-crown   is  displayed.  Tho shield 'has a border   of   rich  amber   color,    surrounding   the  rose,   thistle   and   shamrock   as  picked out by colored crystals.  Gorgeous' as   are   the  decorations and illumunitions of public  edifices, they are rivalled by the  embellishments      of      business  houses  and   private residences.  The'decorations ol Lady Burdett  ConUs*" hou&e   are on  a grand  scale, and scarcely less imposing  are   the    decorations    of   Lord  Rothschild's   residence. ' . Other  .elaborate     decorative    schemes  have been carried out with pleasing    effect   by   H...J.   King, iu  Piccadilly, and   M.   von   Andre,  brother-in-law of Mrs. Chaunccy  Dopew.     It is conceded   that  M.  ��� von Andre has gone  one   better  than   he  did   at   the time of the  queen's  jubilee, when   his green  and     white    decorations     were  voted   the   linesl   in all London.  Carlton    House   Terrace,     from  one end to the   oilier, presents a  very line  appearance    ' All   the  big houses have  been  decorated  both in front and buck  and   during ihe night* of next week they  are to be  niagniliccnlly   illuminated.    The liuo.-d private display  of all, however,  has   been   made  b" Lord (Jleno.-dc. al Iii Piccadilly  but it is hardly a cause   for  surprise, as few have ever surpassed  him in festival  decorations.      In  the   matter   of, decorations   the  ' question of expense seems never  Lo have been taken into consjder-  .ation, but w.lia.id,'has contributed  still iiiore to. the  success   is   the  fact that a uniform .uid harmonious plan has been   followed   out  with the result that.fhere are no  such   eyesores   as  spoiled    tlie  elTeot'of   the  dcCnrntjpnsaf the  time'of the-qucen's.jubilee,  j  "Amb.ei'v .Plug Smoking Tobacco is winning on its merits.
