The papers ��� all over the Do  minion are mentioning the operations of the St. Eugene and  North Star mines in ^he Fort  Steele district.  It takes time and patience to  develop even a promising mining  camp to that basis where it may  be classed as among the solid,  permanent institutions of the  country.  News comes, from Spokane  that ihe Sullivan mine will soon  resume operations.  During the past month the  North Star has shipped over  1000 tons of ore.

WORD has been( received  that a number of prominent mining men from (.different  - parts of the country ,will be in  , the district this summer to look  over the -field and see what we  have to offer in the way of mining claims. The Prospector  has always maintained that once  the'tide "set towards the Fort  Steele district there would be a  rush.���        ���    '  *    *   * .  In the early days of the West  Kootenay districts it was difficult  , to persuade any one Chat the districts would amount to anything.  that the ores for the most part'  base or of a low grade and- un-  On  profitable to mine under the then  existing transportation facilities.  The Fort Steele district now is  in, a better position than many  sections in West Kootenay, notwithstanding which, these districts have forged ahead in spite  of' adverse criticism.  It will be the same in the Fort  Steele district., The shipping  mines are leading in the production of ores, the showings are  better here than , there at "the  samestage of development. The  movement towards this district  has commenced ��� and before  another twelve months the fame  of the Fort Steele district will  be as great as that of any. other  mining section.  *     *      -x- ,  Last week we had occasion  to  ,   remark upon the  great amount  of development, work which is  now being done in  the different  ' camps tributary to .Fort Steele.  Later reports are  to the effect  that if the rainy season continues  ,   much longer work   on many of  the properties will be delayed to  some extent.  -X-      *      *  The past year has been marked  by a marvelous growth in general business as well as in the  mining industry of the FovP  Steele district, and an era of'  prosperity for the entire district seems to have set in.  * *    *  It is to be regretted that there  is not a better collection of minerals at Fort'Steele. An exhibit  of mineral in town, this year es  '- pecially, would be worth  thousands of dollars as an advertisement of the resources of  the  district.  * *   *  Our experience in the newspaper business teaches us that  an editor of a country paper does  more gratis work for the public  than any man in the country. Tf  all the space we use in trying to  boom our town and district, and  in helping individuals and  society, was paid for at half the  legal rates we would be the richest man in the district, but we  arc not, yet we. believe we do as  much for the district and community as the wealthiest men.

SATURDAY, JUNK 2U, 1901.  Tho Crisis of Two laves.  It  is said   that Thomas Marshall, the eminent statesman  ol'  Kentucky of   a   generation    or  more  ago,   that  he  was, in  his  early life, greatly moved by   the  power    of    God   to   become   a  Christian.       lie    debated     the  matter.__J1. seeded to him that if  he should become a Christian he  must  become' a   minister of the  Gospel, and this  he  was determined   he   would   not do, and as  he was determined upon the-law  ��������� and political success.   One night  ho was in a prayer meet ing.   An  earnest prayer was.being  made,  and   he  felt  that if he remained  until   its' conclusion    he    must  yield. Determined that he would  not yield, he seized his  hat  and  rushed out of the room.     Never  after   that did   he  have  an impulse to become a Christian, but  wont on   in  a  life  in which he,  had some -worldly success, but  in which he destroyed himself in  a course of dissipation.  Almost-the same thing is  said  'if  of Aaron Burr, one of the bright-  ' est and  worst  men   who   have  ever   lived.    ' He   tells   us  that  when    he   was   about' nineteen  < years  of age  he 'saw that a decision must be made between, the  world   and   God.  ' He went into  the country  for a week to consider the matter.    I-Je then made  a   resolution   never    again''   to  trouble himself about his  soul's  ���salvation.      From   this  time  he  throw    himself   recklessly   into  'sin,'sinking lower and lower into  depravity and unrighteousness.  "We are to choose Christ and  life, and then wo are to go on in  tho right way, pressing towards  God in the way of faith and  obedionce,iand service.

'  A young ,,1114111 whon offered a  , a package oi' iiifidel.piiblica'tions,  is said to have made tlie following admirable reply: , ''II you  ���have anything better than the  Sermon on the Mount, ��� the Parable of the Prodigal" Son, and  that of the Good Samaritan: or  if you "have, any bettor code of  morals than the Ten Command-  ments. or anything more consoling , and- beautiful than the  Twenty third Psalm; or on the  whole anything"that will throw  more light on the future and reveal to me a Father more merciful'and kind than the New Testament, please send-it to me":  The Joys of a Guiltless Mind.  Nothing can produce so great  a serenity of life as a mind free  from guilt, and kept untainted,  not only from actions, but pur-  -poses that are wicked. Uy this  means tho soul .will be not only  unpolluted, but not disturbed.  The fountain wiU'run clear and  unsullied, and the streams that  run from it will be just aiid  honest deeds, ecstasies of satisfaction, a brisk energy of spirit  which makes a man an enthusiast  in his joy, and u' tenacious  memory sweeter than .hope. For  as shrubs which are cut down  with the morning dew upon them  do for a long time after retain  their fragrancy, so tho good  actions of a wisp man perfume  his mind and leave a rich scent  behind them. ' So that joy is, as  it were, watered with these essences, and owes its  to them.
