Windermere Country.
Unless all signs fail the Wind-
ermerr- erinntry will be the scene
of great activity this summer.
A large number of men wintered in ilie country and many ha\o
gone iii^lliii spring, and others
arc coming almost daily into
Port Steele bound for that country of great possibilities , Il is
the most remote mining section
in Fast Kootenay. and probably
for that reason prospectors regard it as probably the best
country in which to ply their
vocation.
People who have visited that
section this spring are mucli impressed with what J hey saw and
predict a great future lor the
country.
The Paradise group, of which
so much was heard last fall, will
resume work again in a shori,
time. Ou this property there is
an immense showing of carbonate ore., which from the grass
roots was of a shipping grade.
A .syndicate headed by R'. Ft.
Bruce has taken over the property.
oSome ore from the Red' Line
was sent to the smelter. Lt is
reported that work on this property will be carried on-this summer on a larger scale than ever;
this," However, is only rumor.
Considerable ore was "taken
from the DeJphinu during the
winter to the landing, ,, from
.whence it will be shipped to'the
smelter:" it is said the value of
the shipment will equal that of
last year, which netted over $80
to the ton.
Work oti« the Swansea has
been stopped for some 'time, but
will shortly be resumed. There
is considerable high grade ore
on the 'dump ready for shipment. ,    '

Improvements.
Tlio   improvement.-,  going  on,
in, Fort  Steele   is   remark-able.
Several   new   .residences    have
been erected  and  a   number, of
others will shortly be put up.' In
addition to this many ol the older houses have been painted and
neat   fences    are    being,,built.
These improvements 'add   much
to .the -appearance   of a   town.
Painl and fences  are   important
factors in beam itying ones premises.      Under the old conditions
there "was an air of  uncertainty,
as though  the  people  expected
to pull out at any   time,   having
doubt as to the stability  of  tho
town, but as we all  know   Port
Steele  i.s here  to  stay,   having
long passed the stage of, an   uncertain frontier town.     There is
no more beautiful  a  location, 'in
all of, the Kootenay region,   and
for most part the'people are here
to  stay,   feeling sure   that    the
town has a good future before it.
Therefore,   the   permanent   improvements    which    are    being
made   are  sure  to  impress  the
stranger with the stability of the
pioneer town of the Kootenavs.
withstanding this the work still
continues:    fortunately,   fluctuations   iuive   no   infect   upon    the
munaycmenl.      They   have   ore
everywhere    and   have   demoii-

The North Star and   Sullivan  Mines  Shipping:. - Th�� Future Output  Will Amount to 200 Tons  Daily.,  Mark creek is  .sitinited  about  the center of  the*   immense  lead  /.one that traverses  tho  Selkirk  range    of    mountains   in South  Wast Kootenay.      The   rock enclosing the ore found  i.s  a -Mark  gray,  with  a  fine-grained  hard  Lough texture, apparently oJ" igneous origin,  with evidence-,  of  bedding planes in the vicinity of  tlie Sullivan group of mines, indicating the probability of its being very highly altered  stratified rocl-c.      A large number of locations have been staked on both  sides oi" tlie creek.     The North  1 Star has shipped during the past  three years about 11,000 tons  of  ore. and has blocked out by  its  numerous drifts aud tunnels over  100,0()0 tons of shipping ore, and  .since the completion of the railway has averaged from 7f> to 100  tons daily.    The  ore  is  a   very  fine-grained     galena,     assaying  from forty to fifLy ounces in  silver, lead ;"),"> to.05 percent.

Thus a partnership is formed,  in which one parly furnishes tho  money and the other tfie legs,  eyes and time in hunting out  paying claims. Hundreds of  men in my state owe all iheir  wealth to this source. The late  Senator George Hearst was a.l-  wiiy.-, ready to grub-slake a good  II.  J (.'  'Ml,'  . 11 S i.

The  richest, man in my town is a.grocer whose good-1 tick it was to  find one of tlie most famous of  the Cripple Creek gold-producers.  '���The story of the finding of  this mine i.s as remarkable 'as it  i.s true. Many of the great  'finds' of Colorado have been by  accident. In this case two mining partners were off prospecting, leaving the third sick in j meeting was thed��vising of ways  carnp.

To cooperate with similar organizations in any legitimate effort to further the coin-  inercial and mining interests of  the Province and East Kootenay  in particular.  Tlie Kimberley Citizens' Committee started with a membership of seventeen men.hers. The  following members are on  the Executive: 11. White, president; C A., iiigelow. 1st. vice-  president; A.

There is a large amount  of this orc,-=aud, unlike the .carbonate oi-o in the Slocan, it carries a higher value than the solid  galena. Across Mark creek' to  the. north we  Iind   the  Sullivan  irroup of mines, which bids  fair  i?   l 7 ,     ,  io   equal,   if    not    surpass, ' its  neighbor on the south.    The ore  is'similar to that found  on   the  North Star.    The  immensity  of  the ore boayi.- betrayed   by  the  large    amount, of   galena   float  found on  nearly  every  location1  on the mountains.      Jt is expected that shipping will commence  j  ihis week.   Delay has been caused by the non-completion of  the  J siding   ,at  Kimberley.   and  Aha  condition of the wagon  road   to  the mine.    There are now thirty  i1*"carloads of ore sorted and; ready j  for shipment,   and , the   amount  ' blocked out   will  equal   that  in  ' ihe North Star.     It   is  said   by  i, iho management that the future  ; output will amount   to.  from   7;i  1 to 100 tons daily.  i),     The ore now being  produced,  j'and there is a large , amount  ou  ,\tho dump,  has been   got out   in  j the course of development, 'and  Aas stoping ground i.s   opened   up  it he tonnage will   bo  largely   in-  jcreased.

Blessing- the Sword.  One little episode of the going  forth of tlie Duke of. Norfolk  to  the war recalls  certain  customs'  of knigh:ly mediaevalism  never  abandoned, by the House of Howard. '  On the day.of  his departure from Loudon the Duke took  his sword to the  private  chapel  at   Archbishop's  House,   where  according' to   a  ancient  rite .it  was solemnly blessed before'the  altar     by     Cardinal,  Vaughan.  When  the   kneeling- soldier   of  fortune���in   a   new    sense���was  enjoined in the 'accustomed  formulary to accept no  greater  reward  for  his. services   then  cis  their just due', it was a little difficult for either actor in the, moving little ceremony   to  preserve  a countenance  quite   impassive.

' The Seattle assay office force  i.s busily engaged making prep-  artioiis to handle the Alaska and  Klondike gold output of the season now drawing to a close. Every  indication points to an unprecedented yield, and this year tlie  bulk- of the dust will be reduced  to bar and bullion gold by the  institution.  Only a rough estimate can be  given at this time as to the  amount that will be Tendered.  Alaska and Klondike produced  during IMIii, according to the estimate of Krank A. Leach, superintendent of the San Francisco mint, and Charles G. Vale,  stat.istican. ���fc.M.OL'r.iJ.'iO in gold,  and $1!'7.1'..7 in silver.

This season's Klondike output  is estimated by the most conser  vative and experienced operat  ors of the district, at from &-!('.-  (1(1(1,000 lo fcy.OOU.OOO. With such  a yield the Seattle office, holding  last year's proportion of the  Klondike gold traffic, should  treat sKi.000,0i>0 or #17.uou.(i(ii),  to say nothing of 'the returns  that will be offered' from Cape  Nome and other Alaskan. districts. . ���  property-holder be asked to pjy  $10 for every lot owned by   him,  and  $307>   was  raised   by   those  present, as the result of that resolution in as short a   time  as   it  was possible to draw up the subscription list and have ti. signed.  It,is expected to raise  an  equal  amount from non-resident  property owners.     The Fort Steele  Development     Syndicate      has  agreed  to   subscribe   au   equal  amount to the total raised by all  individual  ' property     holders.,  This'will make a street improvement account of about $l:.'0(>  or  i?1.100.     Tlie work- on street improvements,is to, begin about the  lath'of  May.     The  Kimberley  Citizens' Committee is to be congratulated on   tlie   united  stand  taken , on  this' most   important  question  in * all   new   mountain  towns.     The starting of a news  paper in the town was discussed  and action will be   taken' in, the  near future   for   the   establishment'of a   paper  at   Kimberley.  The election of fire wardens' was  discussed, and immediate  steps  are being taken for th'e election  of the same.  ��� From the above it will be seen  that the citizens, of Kimberley  arc energetic and enterprising,,  and the success,of <*the Kimberley Citizens' Committee is assured when such a-spirit prevados  the community.  The Kimborley Water & Light  Company is being organized for  the purpose of supplying Ihe  town with water and eleclr'c  light. Surveys of the pipe lines  have been made and the plans  and profile'have just been completed by Chas. ' Esnnere. C. E."

The Boundary Country.
The wonderful si rides which

the people resident in that section. They know the possibilities of the district and made direct efforts to.inducc niiiiiim men
to lake an interest, in ihe country. How weli they have succeeded i.s shown by the large cor- 1
porations which have invested 1
