The Fort Steele  district,   can  ��� boast of as fine agricultural,land  , as can be found any ,vhcre. while  the district as a whole is essentially a raining section. There  are'large areas of arable laud in  the valley -of the Kootenay.'  Much of this land has been taken uji, and a large amount is on  the market. These lands promise to be an important factor in  the development of the country:  The Prospector has on several  occasions mentioned tho fact that'  in no other' mining section of the  province i.s there land enough to  , raise crops to supply the home  demand, "-as a consequence all  'farm products must be shipped  in. This district is much more  favored,   everything which may  - be needed can b'e raised successfully, and in quantities  large  c  nough lo supply any'domiuid. As  tlie country grows moro land will  be put under cultivation, and  as  "the   mines   are   developed    the  -farmer will' find a home market  for his products. There will be  no need of shipping in Hour, co-  reals, hay, fruit and other I arm  products, they will bo raised  right hero. It will not' be in any  years before- there will be  a number'of prosperous I owns in  ..the valley, and those who engage  in agriculture must reap a hiir-  vest. This is a great country  and its wonderful resources will  not long remain unknown.  m  #  *  *  I  The Mining Center of tlie District of South East Kootenay  The proposed Crow's Nest t and' Golden Railway, Recently Surveyed, will pass through  FORT  STEELE  ��� ' HVNtjO MlA'IXd.  A mistake that is frequently  made is tho bringing in of capi-  'talists to look al milling properties upon which but little if any  work has boon done, tho result, is  that, he goes away believing an  attempt to bunco him has been  made. Me will damn the country  and declare there ,is nothing in  it. He is loo much incensed , to  inquire if there i.s'any really  good mining properties in the  district'on which capital can be  profitably employed. If he would  take time lo look around, ho  would undoubtedly find something to compensate him for his  disappointment.  A case in point,   a  gentleman  .from Illinois came lo Fort Steele  a few weeks ago for tho purpose  of looking at a mining claim, ho  came, he saw., and went away an-  , gry and disappointed,  fortunately it was not a resident   of   Fort  'Steele who had tho claim, there  fore no blame can attach to any  ' of the people hero, but the effect  is just as bad. Thi- district    ha-  had set backs enough by outside  people coming in and   trying  to  palm off wild cats on   -trangers,  and   the    sooner    lhe    practice  ceases the bettor foi' the   mining  industry of Easi  Kootenay.
