One of the most notable events  in Fort Steele society was tho  marriage of , Richard Hirlz and  Mabel "Secord in ,lhe Church ot  St. John tho Divine on Wednesday last.'  "For, a   half hour   before   tho  ri  ceremony the church was crowd -  -     i' I,  ed:     The altar  was beautifully  decorated for the occasion.  Promptly at 12"o'clock the  bridal party arrived af tho  church.' As Ihoy marched down  tho-chanoel the organist, played  tlio wedding march of Mendols-  sohn.  Thc ceremony was performed  by tho Rev. Havelock Boochcm,"  of Cranbrook. Soon-as fhe last  words of tlie1 impressive ceremony were said thc newly  married couple left' tho church,  the organist played the wedding  march from Lohengrin.  Immediately following- 1he  .wedding a reception was tendered the couple at tho residence of  Mrs. Titus, at which tho friends  of the happy couple attended ��� in  a body to lender congratulations  and good wishes.

In reviewing; tho mineral output of the Province, the 'report of  the Minister of Mines says, " that the Four Steele Mtninc: Division has earned the right to be considered the Lead-Produc-  ixc Centre of the Province." The following extracts from 'his  report are of interest to mining men.  Tho most notable feature of the -year's development, 1900, was  the increase in fhe production of lead. The total output for the  Province amounted to (>:i,515K,G2L pounds, valued at &1,-<JI,017,  equivalent to an increase over,thc previous year of 200 per cent.  ' This increase has been, brought about chiefly by the energetic  development of three mines in tho Fort Steele Mining Division of  South-East Kootenay. ,,  The Slocan'Mining Division has heretofore always held first  place in the list of lead producers, having an output cin 1897 of  almost 3L,000,000 pounds, and although in 1899 it fell as low as  10,000,910 pounds, it has again increased in 1900 to 19,505.743 lbs.,  a gain over the previous year of about 17 per cent.  However, the increase in the Fort Steele Division-- of from 881,-  107 pounds in 1899 to 38,495,07,9 pounds jn 1900 has earned for it  the right to be considered the lead-producing'centrc of the Province.  Silver and-load", are closely associated in British Columbia, so  much so that 90 per cent offOur silver production ' for 1900 is derived from silver- lead ores:     <��� *-   '      , r  The1 total amount"of silver produced the past year was 3,958,175  ounces, worth ��2,30n,'200, an increase in value over, 1S99of #045,492  or equivalent to 39%. " "       .-  This increase has been chiefly caused., by  fhe output of South  < .i? 'i  '     . ,    *  East Kootenay, which this year produced 960,411 ounces pi, silver  as against 33,510 ounces in 1899.

Thc result of miuing operations in the Fort Steele mining divi  sion during the past year is highly satisfactory from every point  of view. Slow but constant development, of individual properties  has been the rule throughout fhe entire district, and many properties have reached a stage that with adequate means of transportation would be able to ship large quantities of ore inside of thirty  days.  The production for the past year has been confined to silver-lead  ores, and coal. The mining of copper ore has not yet begun,  though copper has been found in paying- quantities all over the  district, in fact a considerable number of copper properties have  been developed and proved to have copper ore carrying from five  to twenty per cent in copper, besides values in gold, silver and load  Tin*: Prospector has always maintained that the Fort Steele  mining division was destined to become fhe banner mineral producing district of tho province, and the ore production for the  past year, "with but three shipping and producing mines," fully  and completely bears out this opinion."  It is now evident to all, and proved by tho report of the Minister  ol Mines, that as an individual mining district, Fort Steele stands  second 1o no district in the province, and to emphasize thi.s fact,  land brinn thi- mhieial resources of the district before the people  o" Ca-.uid-i, so that it can be readily understood, we again repeat  t'r.it, the large amount of ore shipped during 1900 was the production of only throe mines. Thai we have others, and equally as  good mines, is borne out by the fact that a large number of  partially developed properties, isolated from railway transportation, have large quantities of ore on fhe clump, ranging from 100  to 1000 Ions. A prominent mining man has estimated that over  20,000 tons of ore is ready for shipment, from mines in the Kootenay valley, situated bet-ween Elk river and Sheep creek, a distance of some sixty miles, along the proposed route of the Kootenay Central Kail way. '  ,, 7    ���  The people of "the Fort Steele district are well satisfied with the  results of mining operations during the past year, and their hearts  are filled with hope for the future: and Tins Prosi'KC'I'OK ventures to predict,,tliat, with the construction of the Kootenay Central Railway, the increased activity in. mining circles; the immense  increased .''output of coal from the Fernie mines, the present year  will see'the.* Fo i'l Steel'.* mining .division in the lead, as the banner  'mineral producing district on the American continent.  ���:-TrTTTmTTTTnTTTTTmTTTTTTTTTTTTnnTTTTTTTTTT->  I //; Tunnel and Stope %  ������.���ikkkkkkiikkkikkkikkklkkkiiikikkiiiiiikikikikiikk-:-  STAR  GKOITP. l     '  An outfit of ten pack animals  left Fort Steele on Tuesday,  with supplies for the Star group  A number of men later in the  week went to the mine.

The wonderful  copper  showings on the St. Mary's river and  its tributaries must   before , long  attract general attention   to  the  country.       So   far - as   can   be  learned, there are no better showings in   the  Province,' but -like  many another mineral section, if  is kept back for want of  transportation facilities,  the ore  for  the   most   part   being   too   low'  grade to ship with  profit "under  the present conditions, but with  a railway-extending from Crawford Bay'to Fort Steele  the St.'  Mary's district will be second to  no  other copper producing district in British Columbia.  WILD  HOUSE  CREEK.  Along Wild Horse creek there  is considerable mining activity.  Nearly" all the placer claims are  at work. A large amount "of  assessment work is being done  on claims in this vicinity. It is  claimed'that gold bearing quartz  ledges are located on Wild Horse  creek and Mts tributaries which  bid fair to riyal the-African gold  fields. American investors are  turning their attention, in this  direction.        , ,  ESTETLLiA.1 . ,  At the Estella work is still going on'with satisfactory results.

That most mysterious of all  agents, the X-rays, has added  one more to the long list of its  , triumphs. Theyhave discovered  that by its use false gems can  promptly and surely bo dis-  ' tinguished from true ones. ��� A  few daysiugo a jeweller of Sterling, 111., put the matter lo an  extensive test. Taking a large  number of jewels, imitation and,  genuine, ho exposed tlioin to the  X-rays', and'placed in front of  them a properly protected photographic plate.  There wore diamonds in, tho  group, rubies, sapphires, amethysts, emeralds, pearls, moonstones, quartz and glass. Some  of these,substances left distinct  images on tiie plate, though always the claws of the settings  could be seen plainly through  the stones themselves. Many of  the real stones, however, showed  almost no shadow whatever. On  .the contra^, -the falso^ stones  were almost opaque to'the ,X-  rays, and their photograph was  a silhouette.-  Por instance, an olivine was  pTiotographcd. Jt is'so close an  , imitation of the emerald that it is  very difficult to detect' it, but its  image in the X-ray photograph  (or skiagraph) was a tell-tale  black. Five genuine diamonds  were mixed with live false ones,  and photographed. The image  of the former was hardly visible,  but the imitations were disclosed  as black,'sharp shadows.  Most' .significant   is   all   this,  surely, of the >vay in'.'which  the  eye of God, infinitely more acute  , than'any natural force of  God's  ' making,'can pierce  through all  'human pretences,   and-see, the  'real'character of  a  man.     He  may seem a diamond,.on the put-,  . side.    .He,'may   shine   with  ,a  - splendid-lustre, and" be counted  "of,royal value." It may ,be. impossible, for men to know that  he is "a cheat. But all tilings  are naked and laid"open unto the  eye of Him with whom we have  to do, the darkness and tlie light  are botli,alil"e to Him, and there  - is not a word in the tongue but  ho knows it altogether.
