Hume &Q6M  ENCOURAGING    DEVELOPMENT  ON FISH RIVER PROPERTIES  THE    LARDEAU - GOLDSMITH  Smith Curtis Tells of the  Resources of  the   Country���������General   Milling   Notes  From the  Trail  Creek Camp���������Many  Minor Deals���������Good Pay Ores Abound  in Large Quantities  Smith Curtis has just returned from  a visit to the property of the Lareoau-  Goldsniith Mines, limited, on Fish and  Pool  creeks,  in  the Liirdeau mining  division.   He reports  that the work  done in the elivision during the present  season has shown it to be a rich one  with great possibilities.    The assessment work on the Black Bear. Glacier,  Alice and Mohawk properties is snid  to have disclosed valuable ore bodies.  Tbe surface showings of mora or loss  solid   galena  of  high   grade  on the  Mohawk   are  very encouraging   and  the   owners    intend   to   work   it  all  winter.  The Boucher group, south of. Pool  creek was bonded in". July for $50,000  add has been worked for the past two  months and a good deal of splendid  ore taken out. 'Work is to be continued all winter by a good force'of  men. Some of its oro. has been packed  down to Comaplix to]be shipped to the  smelter. Boyd creek properties are  showing up exti-a well and a good deal  of work will be dono there next year.  Sahle creek properties, loo, are highly  spoken of. Cory Mehiiinick has fine  samples of copper 'pyrites from his  property there, und thu Trilby group  is said to have a lug-showing of.galemi  ore. ''-   " -  The Kootenny Lumber Company, ol  Gomnplix bus got'oul a good' map of  .the -minernl claim _;��������� in the,Lai dean  division and is- in.ikiii.__> :V-.freo distribution of them. The company has an  excellent general store'at Comaplix.  - Speaking of the operations of the  Luvdeau-Goldsiuilh Mines, limited,  Mr. Curtis said that the tunnel cDn-  tract 611 which Mr. Goldsmith hnd  been working all summer had  been completed. A considerable  distance has yot to be driven lo tup  the vein at a depth of about 175 feet  below where., the rich gray copper  surface showing was found, where  asstiys ranging from $200 to $600 had  been got.~ On another of the company's properties, the Brunswick, a  vein of good ore, consisting of a mixed  "gal ~!iiTi~7iifil~"coppei,=-pyritesr"hiiil���������been  uncovered and a tui.nel is now being  driven to tap this at a lower depth. It  was expected thut it would be reached  in 25 feet more. A sample ton of ore  from the latter vein was to be sacked  immediately and sent to the smelter  ���������is a test. The assay values so far  obtained would average $75 in lead,  silver and copper, and some gold.  The property is seven miles from  Comaplix, at the head of Upper Arrow  Lake, and but. ono mile from the  wagon road running to Comaplix, so  that the cost of transportation of ores  to the lako and the smelter would be  comparatively small. If the new  tunnel discloses a good body of ore, as  it is confidently believed it will, the  oie taken out during development  work the coining winter will he  shipped to the smelter.  Mr, Curtis expresses himself as well  pleased witn tho Brunswick and the  present'outlook of the company. As  there are a good many shareholders of  the company in the city he has placed  samples of the ore brought down  from th'i Brunswick in the Miner  window, where it can be seen by those  interested.���������Rossland Miner.  OFFERS GREAT   INDUCEMENTS  TO MONEYED MEN  TOO  MANY  POOR  MEN  NOW  They Have the Claims, the Leads, the  Mineral, but no Money or Transportation���������A Lucrative' Investment for  Capital���������Rich Silver-Lead Properties  Lying Dormant.  The Trout Luke district is no poor  man's proposition. What is meant  by this is, that to a man lucking the  means of purchasing mining properties and after purchase, working them  successfully, this country can possess  few attractions. And the object of  this item is not to encourage at this  juncture the poor man to come here,  but to piesent to the moneyed' man  the advantages which the silver-lead  properties of this district possess for a  lucrative investment of his surplus  capital.  It will be generally admitted by  every fair-minded mnn, that before  any Lardean towns can support an  influx of the laboring and business  classes, more than they already  possess, ' the district will have to  increase its list of shipping mines:  This can best ho done by laying the  value of the "mines and prospects of  these sections before the investing  public and induce it to expend a  portion of its money in the work of  development.  It, must not be inferred fiom the  foregoing that it is meant to discourage the prospector from- extending his  attention to this district���������by no  means. There is plenty of country  to be gone over, and almost every  section of it will bear closer prospect-;  ing. ������ After the prospector .niust.cpuie  the capitalist! 'who- in turn will pave  the way hy creating the demand for  labor for the poorer man. And until  such time has arrived it would not lie  wis,e for a man of small means to come  here, for he would exhaust his slender  resources long before the means of  recuperation would present" itself.���������  Trout Lako Topic.  ANOTHER DOUBLE SALE  THE AMERICAN   AND  MORNING  STAR BONDED  ST. LEON HOT SMNGS  SATISFACTORY    TERMINATION  OF   LITIGATION  THE NEW STRIKE  Four  This week we have added  many novelties in Ladies'  Sailors and Walking Hats,  Ladies' Cloth Jackets and  Capes. And now is your time  to make a selection before  sizes and colors are broken.  Mail Orders Carefully filled.,  lie Bros.  An Eye-Opener  Thero is general activity in mining  circles in the Lardeau, and a number  properties have already changdo  hands, with a large number of prospective sales in view. Next year the  Lardeau will have railway communication with Revelstoke and a tide of  prosperity that will place that district  before the world in a new and prosperous light. The merchants and  businessmen of Revelstoke should  take step.* to retain the trade of the  district. The cities to the south have  an eye on the Lardeau and that they  will bid for ths trade is not doubted.  Revelstoke is the natural supply  point, and if strenuous efforts are put  forth in the right direction the trade  will be reserved for the merchants  here.  The Towser is Now _. Showing  Inches of Clean Galena-  Dave Ferguson came up on Thurs  day-and���������con firmed���������tho���������report-that  appeared in the last issue of the  Hf.kat.d re the strike on the Towser.  There is four inches of clean galena  showing at the end of the lunnel. Mr.  Ferguson will put a few men to work  again on his return home and expects  that within twenty feet more of the  tunnel the Towser will show up  equal to any property in thero. Dave  snys that the ore is there and he will  expose it.  A Crying Need  To tho Editor of the Herald:  Sin: .On behalf of the young men  of tho town and of the hundreds of  prospectors and miners who will winter in Revelstoke, I would like to nsk  your kind influence in the establishment of a "reading and recreation  room" in the West End. These men  have no homes, tbey are consequently  thrown entirely on. the barrooms for  warmth, reading and entertainment.  If a reading .room were eslal-idlied  where all the leading newspapers nnd  magazines could be obtained and  where innocent pastimes in the way of  games could be indulged in, it would  prove a boon to the class of men above  mentioned.  I trust that the citizens of Revelstoke will come to the support of tin:  ladies of the XV. C.T.U. who havo  decided to make the attempt to establish and carry on for the winter at  least a reading rnom in Revelstoke.  providing that a building can be obtained and funds provided to run it. .  Yours,  S. J- T.  $23,000 IS THE EXACT FIGURE  The Morning Star is Located on the  Silver Cup Lead���������Messrs. Abrahamson  Bros., of Revelstoke, and Thos.  Taylor, of Trout Lake City, are the  Owners���������Olher Deals are Reported.  Quite recently an option wa_, taken  011 lho American, a claim owned by  Abrali.'iinson Bros, and Thos. Taylor,  whereby J. H. Berry of Rossland, gets  control of this claim for a period of S  months. The basis for the agreement  was lhat Iheclaim should be valued at  $0,000 and tlifil $2,000 should be paid  on the 1st day of December, 1S03, and  the balance of $1,000 on the 1st day of  June, 1S09.  Another option was that on the  Morning Star, owned by the Abrahamson Bros., and consummated a  few days ago whereby that property  passes~.uidcr the control of the same  gentlemen for a period of 12 months.  The payments to he mado .ire ns  follows: . Seven hundred and fifty  dollars on March , 1st,- 1S99, seven  hundred and fifty on the last day. of  June, 1809, and the balance thirteen  thousand live hundred dollars on the  last day of September IS90. making in  all the purchase price of the property  to be fifteen -thousand dollars. Tbe  Murning Star is located on the Silver  Cup lead and two claims distant from  it and lins.a pretty fair showing. Four  assessments having been done on it. ���������  Trout Lake Topic.  THOMSON^ LANDING  A  Promising Townsite,. at  the   Head  of Navigation   -  Thompson's Landing "is situated-at.  the head of-navigation, on the northeast arm of Upper Arrow,Lake, and itis at this point that transhipment of  ficight and baggage, for Trout Lake  City, Ferguson and Teu Mile City  takes place. This town is a most  important one from the fact that' in  addition to Jts being at the head of  navigation on the Arm. and therefore  the point at.which all freight is transferred for shipment to the interior of  the district, and from the fact that all  the ore from the mines on Lardeau  creek and Trout Lake will be hauled  there prior to shipment. It is also  important because it will to a great  extent be the centre of supply for jji������  Fish Creek district. Up Fish Creek  many valuable prospects have been  discovered 'and as tbe result of of late  development operations have exceeded  tbe expectations of persons holding  property in the district, it goes without saying that this creek will receive  a considerables share of attention from  the many moneyed men who are  expected in to look over properties  in this and neighboring .districts during the coming ������f>i.*on.  Thomson's L-tiding is possessed of a  couple df completely equipped hotels,  and it is pretty safe to say that nowhere in the country will the comfort  of travellers be more sednously looked  after than at either ono of these hotels.  Itis the headquiuterr for the stage  line and a strong transportation  company, and hns a general stoie.  postoffice. and blacksmith shop. Mail  can be sent out and received daily and  n telephone service connects this place  with the iti,terior and outside, points.  It is an excellent place from which to  prosecute inquiries into the value of  either Fish Creek or Trout Lake ore  bodies.  A CHARMING SUMMER RESORT  *>n  over  .1  He Took No Reward  The gold watch and ring which was  advertised vas lost last week was  picked up by section foreman Benson,  who found it buried in cinders and  gravel on the track, near the water  tank. Mr. Benson modestly declined  I to accept the $75 reward offered.  TEN" MILE CITV.   -  About six miles ithove Ferguson and  near the head of the south fork of  Lardeau Creek, is Ten Mile City. This  place, although it is as yet in embryo,  is likely to prove quite as lively a  point, as there is in tho Tront Lake  dislrict, from the fact that several  rich prospects, (the hope of that section) are situated nn the mountains  surrounding this little town. At  present it is possessed of but one store,  one hotel, and a livery stable. But as  the properties before mentioned will  be vigorously developed this coming  season, ib is confidently expected by  many fully competent to judge, that  Ten Mile City will keep pace with the  section of the country with which its  interests are immediately identified.  It will be connected by wa-ion road  with the main road to Thomsons  Landing as soon as the season is  sufficiently advanced to permit of the  work being done,  W. M. Brown the Sole and Undisputed  Owner of the Property���������A Description  of   the   Springs    and 0. the     Natural  Beauties   of   the   Locality���������Froposed*  Improvements to be at Once Started "  Our readers  in  Revelstoke will  he'  glad to learn that the  protracted litigation  over the property at the SI.-'  Leon Hot Springs has been ln-oiiglit to  a   satisfactory.-termination.*    At the"  instance of Geo.

Tlie"  property is beautifully situated on the'"  east shore of the Upper "Arrow Lake,"  facing  a  charming   little  bay, back  from which  extends a lovely   valley,'  heavily timbered and sheltered .from'  the wind, through which flows a clear,"  mountain'stream," the haunt of inmun- ~\  erable ���������   trout.

Smith Curtis, of the Lardeau-Gold-  sniitli Co., Rossland. is inspecting  mining properties in the Lrrdcau wilh  a view to making a purchase for his  company.  XV. B. Pool left yesterday on a business trip into the Lardean. He will  visit, the Nettie L, on which a contract  for a 100 foot tunnel has been signed  by his company.  The Revelstoke Saw Mills are work-,  ing a large gang of men at present.  The demand for lumber is increasing  very rapidly, which is an evidence of  the building activity in town.  J. Henderson, of Golden, passed  through town last night en route for a  ten days sojourn in the lower country  to look after his mining interests,  particularly around Ymir, where he  says he has a couple of good properties.  The Revelstoke sawmills finished  sawing the joist and rafters for Mr.  Tapping's new opera house last week.  There were 50 pieces _4 feet long and  100 pieces 30 feet in length. The  timber was without a flaw and the  largest ever sawn at the mills here. '  It is reported that a sale is pending  on the Trilby group, in Sable ' Creek  Basin, with a big cash consideration.  The deal will likely bo put through in  a few days. The owners of the Trilby  are Messrs. Young and Godsall, of  Calgary, and Messrs. Brown and Pool  and Holloway of Revelstoke.  Judge Walkem has decided that a  mineral claim crown granted since the  statute of 1803 does not carry with" it  the absolute right to tho surface of the  claim. Also that a "crown grant to a  claim does not convey the water-rights  on the. said claim, as the principle of  riparian ownership has been abrogated  by the Water-Privileges Act of 1802.���������  Rossland Leader.

Colonel Jake Haager Is one of the most  gallant as well as one of the handsomest  men who over sat In the obalr of tbe chief  of police and boused the bobbies in blue.  Ho is a natlvo Kentuoklan, full of respect  for tho fair box, gentlo as a summer aophyr  and ns full of sympathy as a can la of oovo  oysters. Tot upon ono oooaslon he drow  back his fist and gave a woman a blow in  tho face that shook her from the tip of her  velvet toque to the end of hor gam overshoes.  In days gono by the notorious Carrie  MoBrlde, who Is now dead, was noted as  the worst woman In the oity. She was a  rawbonod, powerful creature, with a flst  on her like a battering ram, and at least  onoe a week for 90 years it was necessary  to arrest hor. Policemen shivered when  tbey saw her drinking, for thoy knew they  woro in for a fight beforo the day was over.  She knookod thom down and tore thoir  uniforms, battered their faces and made  them objects of rldloulo on their boata.  Out of thoir meager wage* thoy had to replace the uniforms ihe destroyed, and thoir  families suffered ..In ooniequenoe. Of  oourso it would not do to itrlke a woman  and thus place a blot on the fair name of  Kentnoky. Years went by, and Carrie became worse than ever with age.  Colonel Haager was keeper ln the Central police station ono day when sho was  brought In, lighting desperately. As soon  as sho saw him she said:  "Since whon did all yon boys get on  the polico forcer Woll, I'll just take a fall  out of you!"  Then she drew book hor flst and prepared to give him a beating. Like aflash  the flst of the young man shot out, and  Carrlo dropped with a dull thud against  the iron door of the station. With a dazed  look on her bloated face she arose and  staggorod toward him. Down ehe wont  ngain at suddenly an beforo. Raising her-  golf on ono elbow, sho contemplated htm  for a moment and said: ~  "Say, you're all right I'll give up,  and you'll never have any more trouble'  with mo."  Tbe spirit of the noted virago wal bro-  kon and ever after *ord she was gentle as ���������  lamb.���������LouUvU" merclaL  JAPPING^  JHEATRE  TO-NIGHT,  REMEMBER.

ENCOURAGING    DEVELOPMENT  ON FISH RIVER PROPERTIES  THE    LARDEAU - GOLDSMITH  Smith Curtis Tells of the  Resources of  the   Country���������General   Mining   Noies  From the Trail Creek Camp���������Many  Minor Deals���������Good Pay Ores Abound  in Large Quantities  Smith Curtis has just returned from  a visit to the property of the Lareouu-  Goldsnitth Mines, limited, on Fish and  Pool creeks,  in the Liirdeau mining  division.   He reports   that the work  done in the division during the present  season has shown it to he a rich  one.  with great possibilities.    The assessment work on the Black Bear. Glacier,  Alice and Mohawk properties is said  to have disclosed valuable oro  bodies.  Tbe surface showings of more or loss  solid   galena  of  high   grade   ou  the  Mohawk   are very encouraging   and  the  owners    intend   to   work   it  all  winter.  The Boucher group, south of Pool  creek was bonded in" July for $50,000  add has been worked for the cpast two  months and'a good deal of splendid  ore taken out. Work is to be con-  tinned all winter by-.a good force of  men. Some of its oro has been packed  down to Comaplix to'be shipped to the  smelter. Boyd creek properties are  showing up extra well and a good deal  of work iv ill be dono there next year.  Sable creek properties, too, are highly  spoken of. Cory Mehinnick has Hue  samples of copper- pyrites lrom his  property there, and the Trilby group  is said to have a big showing of.galena  ore.  - The Kootenay Lumber Company, ol  Comaplix hns got out a good map of  .the -mineral .claims! in. Uie_,Laicl-au  division and iis' milking, .-."-.jfree distribution of then'.. The company has an  excellent gonernl store at Comaplix.  ��������� Speaking of the operations of the  Larcleuu-Golds-mUh Mines, limited,  Mr. Curtis said lhat the. >tiinni-l c.in-  trai-t on which Mr. Goldsmith had  been working all summer had  been completed. A considerable  distance hat yet to bu driven to tup  the vein at a depth of about 175 feet  below where:, the. rich gray copper  surface showing--was found,, where  assays ranging from $200 to $600 had  been got. On another of the company's properties, the Brunswick, a  vein of good ore, consisting of a mixed  galena aiiiW"opper-_pyrites,Jiart__been.  uncovered and a tur.nel is now being  driven to tap this at a lower depth. It  was expected thut it would be reached  in 25 feet more. A sample ton of ore  from the latter vein was to be sacked  immediately and sent to the smelter  as a test. 'The assay values s>o far  obtained would average $75 in lead,  silver and copper, and some gold.  The property is seven miles from  Comaplix, at the head of Upper Arrow  Lake, and but one mile from the  wagon road running to Comaplix, so  that the cost of transportation of ores  to tho lake and I he Hinelter would be  comparatively small.' If, the new  lunnel discloses a good body of ore. as  it is confidently believed it will, the  cue taken out during development  work the coming winter will be  shipped to the smeltei'.  Mr. Curtis expresses himself as well  pleased witn the Brunswick and the  present outlook of the company. As  there are a good many shareholders of  the company in the city he has placed  samples of the ore brought down  from tliu Brunswick in the Miner  window, where it can be seen by those  interested.���������Kossland Miner.

And tha object of  this item is not to encourage at this  junctnre the poor man to come here,  but to present" to the moneyed man  the advantages which tbe silver-lead  properties of this district possess for a  lucrative investment of his surplus  capital.  It will be generally admitted by  every fair-minded man, that before  any Liirdeau towns can support an  influx of' the laboring and business  classes, ,-inore 'than they already  possess, the district will have to  increase its list of shipping mines.  This can best he done by laying the  value of the mines and prospects of  these sections bofore the investing  public and induce it to expend a  portion of ils money in the work of  development.  It must uot be inferred from the  foregoing that it is meant to discourage the prospector from extending his  attention to this district���������by' no  means. There is plenty of country  to be gone over, and almost every  section of it will bear closer prospect-,  ing. - After-the prospector,, must come  the capitalist!"who in turn will pave  the*way by creating the demand for  'labor for the poorer man. And until'  such time lias arrived it would not bo  wise for a man of small means to come  here, for he would exhaust his slender  resources long before - the means of  recuperation would present' itself.���������  Trout Lake Topic.  $2! ,000 IS THE EXACT FIGURE  The Morning Star * is Located on the  Silver Cup Lead ���������Messrs.

Next year the  Lardeau will have" railway communication with Revelstoke and a tide of  prosperity that will place that district  before the world in a new and prosperous light. The merchants and  businessmen of Revelstoke should  take step." tn retain the trade of the  district. The cities to the south have  an eye on the Lardeau and that they  will bid for tha trade is not doubted.  Kevelstoke is the natural supply  point, and if strenuous efforts are put  forth in the right direction the trade  will be reserved foi- the merchants  here.

These men  have no homes, they are consequently  thrown entirely on. tho barrooms for  warmth, reading and entertainment.  If a reading room were established  where all the leading newspapers and  magazines could be obtained and  where innocent pastimes in the way of  games could be indulged in, it would  prove a boon to the class of men above  mentioned.  I trust that the citizens of Revelstoke will "come to the support of the  ladies of the XV. C.T.U. who have  decided to make the attempt to establish and carry on for the winter at  least a l'eading room in Revelstoke.  providing that a. building can be obtained and funds provided to run it.  Yours,  S. J- T.  THOMSON^ LANDING  A  Promising Townsite,, at  the'.'Head  of Navigation    -  Thompson's Landing is situated at  tlie head of navigation, on the northeast arm of Upper Arrow Lake, and it-  is at this point that transhipment of  freight und baggage, for Trout Lake  Cit.y, Ferguson and Ten Mile City  takes place. This town is u most  important one from the-fact that in  addition to ils being at the head of  navigation on the Arm. and therefore  the point at.which all freight is transferred for shipment to the interior of  the district, and from the fact that all  tho ore from the mines on Lardeau  creek and Trout Lake will be hauled  there prior to shipment. It is also  important because it will lo a great  extent be the centre of supply fi.-r the  "FisirCi^k^l!_trict7~~""U|r"Fish"~"Ci"e"eks  iiiany valuable prospects have been  discovered and as the result of of late  development operations have exceeded  tlie expectations of persons holding  property in the district, it goes without saying that this creek will receive  a considerable share of attention from  the many moneyed men who are  expected in to look over properties  in this and neighboring districts during the coming season.  Thomson's Landing is possessed of a  couple of completely equipped hotels  and it is pretty safe to say that nowhere in the country will the comfort  of travellers be more seduously looked  after than at either one of these hotels.  Itis the hcadquiiiterr for the sta  line and a strong transportation  company, and hns a general si oie.  postoffire, unci blacksmith shop. Mail  can be sent out and received daily and  a telephone service connects this place  with the interior and outside points.  It is an excellent place from which to  prosecute inquiries into the value of  either Fish Creek or Trout Lake ore  bodies,    i  He Took No Reward  The gold watch and ring which was  adveitiscd as lost last week was  picked up by section foreman Benson,  who found it buried in cinders and  gravel on the track, near the water  tank. Mr. Benson modestly declined  to accept the $75 reward offered.  TEN' ~.~II_~" CITY  About six miles above Ferguson and  near the head of the south fork of  Lardeau Creek, is Ten Mile City. This  place, although it is as yet in embryo,  is likely to prove quite as lively a  point as there is in the Trotit Lake  district, from the fact that several  rich prospects, (the hope of that section) are situated nn the mountains  sill-rounding this little town. At  piesent it is' possessed of but one store,  one hotel, and a livery stable. Bul as  the properties before mentioned will  be vigorously developed this coming  season, it is confidently expected by  many fully competent to judge, that  Ten Mile City will keep pace with the  section of the countiy with which its  interests are immediately identified.  It will be connected by wajjon road  with the main road to Thomsons  Landing ns soon us the season is  sufficiently advanced to permit of the  work being done,  W. M.

The depression in tho cycle industry is absolute  ami complete, and the secretary ot me  Cyclo Workers' Union, assorts ilr_t  the '"cyclo industry would be in a  dourishiug stato if it had not been  subjected to tho unsteadying iniiu-  cuices of the Hooloy boom."

EXODUS   01*   ANARCHISTS  Tbero has been a considerable exodus of foreign anarchists from London to tho continent during tho last  few clays. Tho police do not boiieve  that there is any new plot on foot,  but merely that these gentry lind that  they are being "shadowed" too clo;.e-  ly by Inspector Melville aud his able  subordinates. The possession of  money enough to defray long and  numerous journeys may appear rather  strange, but it is capable of somewhat easy explanation.

He may join the fraternity  as a poor waiter, and be most anxious  to quit when he has become a prosperous hotel proprietor. But his old  associates continue not to forget him.  and he is perpetually being  blackmailed under the thin ciiss.uis_  of subscriptions for the "cause."  \,uen it is added that the anarchists  inciuuo all- the most dangerous ruffians of the foreign element in London, tho anxieties of any honest man  who has once been entrapped into  their society can b<; easily understood. Happily their operations in  London have become materially circumscribed by tho increased vigilance  or. tho part of the police.

THE WHEAT SUPPLY  All the great authorities ou tho  subject keep telling us that the supply of wheat throughout the world is  deficient, aud the inference is that  hign prices must eventually come to  wheat holders who can afford to wait.  l"ut the present condition of the corn  markets, and a knowledge of the fact  that during tho last four months,  there has been a rapid and continuous  fall in wheat, values, until the average  price today is mere than a guinea, a  quarter lower than it was in May, is  cruising farmers to loso faith In tho  promotion of exports on this subject  of future prices, as well as in the accounts constantly published of ithe  "'visible supply" of 'wheat in tho  world, and all tho rest of it.

A NEW JSAWMILL  With a Cutting Capacity of 50,000 Feet  and 25,030 Shingles in Course of  Erection���������A Badly Needed Industry  The old lumber mill which his been  in operation afc Revelstoke for nine  years, first as a shingle mill, started  by John Valentine, anil when Daniel  Robinson and J. C. Sleen became  connected with it. As a mill for all  kinds of lumbering, surviving the  wreck of fire and financial distress, is  likely soon to be a thing nf the past,  superseded by an extensive lumbering  plant up to date in all respects, al-  rendy planned, contracted for nnd  construction commenced. It is well it  should be so for an intelligent mill  man. A look through the present  dilapidated structure will nt otu-e  discover that-thc* cotton wood of wliich  its upright timbers aro cum posed,  have rotted and settled so much that  tbey no longer keep their perpindic-  ular positions and endanger the entire  stnictui _'.:as wcll'as the lives of those  who are employed in it.  This old mill and "its career, li.we,  however, deinonsti-alt'd that llevelstoke is a desirable place for llie  lumbering business, exacted on the  main line nf the C.P.R., whence shipment can be madu tn all place., in the  Northwi-st reached by railway, and  where logs can be si-ciu-ed from the  Columbia river, both north and south  from the Illecillewaet canyon and  Eagle Pass, the supply of timber for  liimhi-ritig can truly be said to be  inexhaustible. The forests of North  Kootenny which are all accessible  from Revelstoke. will continue to  supply the demand for lumber for  twenty years longer almost, without  sho.wi ng-that _tlu_y_lia.ve_-beeii-il-a.wn_  upon.  II is well, therefore, that Fred. 1'ob-  insrn, proprietor of the present mill,  has decided to erect an extensive new  sawmill at Revelstoke. which will be  equal to the supplying of any demands  tliat may be made upon this market  for lumber. The contract has already  been given out and the mill will be  completed and in operation within  two months from this date.  AV. A. M0IT.1t is the contractor and  has already begun work. Tt is fo he  located nn the west, side of the tr.ick  of the Arrowhead railway near  ! lower end cf the switch of the  old mill. The main building will be  K-lilOtl feet with an annex nf fUsll feet  and the peak of the innf will be 3o feet,  above the ground. The mill will cut  nO.OOO feet of lumbei' per clay and  25.000 .shintfh's. It will be equipped  evith a-10 horse power engine anel,-_ SO  horse-power boiler. In all respects it  will be a complete.' mill for all classes  Vif sawing and finishing lumber. It  will have two planers, double eclgers  and trimmers, shingle machine and  bolter for cutting pickets and similar  work, anrl a IilI.1i machine.  The lower Hoor of the main building  will be used for nil the shafting ..nd  pulleys. The pulleys aro to be made  aftei" the Dodgwood split p-ittern,  acknowledged to be the best known,  and will he built by the contractor on  the premises.  The ami-x -will contain the bolter,  shingle machine and lath mill. On  t.he second floor will be located a l.n-ge  circular saw, planer, trimmer, the  double-edged anel crnsscutting saw.  All machinery will be of the latest  invention and the best. kind.  It is cause for congratulation that  Revelstoko is soon to have, a sawmill  worthy of its location us a central  lumbering and shipping point, erected  and controlled by a man possessing  such .1 large acquaintance anil long  experience in the. lumber business.  The discovery of a large deposit of  high class bituminous coal on the  Yukon will relieve the fuel problem  next year.  Messrs.

Francis, of typhoid  fever, iu the 27th year of his ago,  It la Said to Kino From an Old Slave's  Grave, to "Which It Returns Aftor Making, tho Rounds���������Unlike tlio Common  Phosphorescent _G!glit.  ���������"In Dekalb county, Ga., four miles from  f.hc village of Lithonia," said a natlva  of that county, "is whnt Is now known  ns tho Mc Williuius farm. Fifty years ago  ti inimly named Reid owned the pluco and  lived there. Tho head of that family,  Jaspor Koid, was n hondstrong, tyrannical  mini. lie had a female slavo mimed Jude.  Reid wus hard with his slaves, and for  some not of insubordination, real or fancied, ho had ti_<_ woman Judo flogged 0110  dey and then looked her in a pen, whoro  ho kept her on short rations until sho  diod, a month or so inter. Judo's body  was buriod in a pieco of woods ln a solitary plnco on a hillside SOO yards or so  from tho houso. Jude and tho solitary  grave on tho hillside would havo been forgotten years ago if it hadn't been that one  night- a week or so after tho poor slave's  body bad been buried a curious phenomenon mndo its appearance at tho gruvo and  has persisted in appearing periodically  over since, thus hooping itself ever fresh  ln tho minds of the peoplo thereabout and  necessarily perpetuating the memory of  Judo and tho lonely grave. That phenomenon ia known ns Judo's light.  "It first appeared to old Jasper Held  himself. Ho was. Bitting on tho piazza of  his houso ono night when ho saw a ball of  11 ro riso in the woods diroctly on the spot-  whero Judo's grnvo was. Tho house stood  ���������nnd stands yet���������in tho fork of two small  creeks tliat join just below it, and the  bottom land was swampy nnd covered  with canobrakes. Ic was not nn uncommon thing to soo phosphorescoub lights  danco and flout with tho wind over and  among thoso brakes under certain conditions of the weather, and Reid supposed  this light that roso on thei hill wns one of  those, although ho had never before seen  any of the phosphorescent will-o'-tho-wisp.s  appear so far from the lowlands, nor any  eo largo as this one. Tho light rose several feet above Judo's grave, lingered there  a moment and then started slowly down  tho hill toward tho house. This amazed  and startled Reid, for quite a strong wind  was blowing directly up tho hill, and yet  this light was traveling with cose oguinst  iti, something no phosphorescent light had  over been known to do. Besides, this  light illuminated with a- deep reddish  tingo tbo bushes nnd trees as it passed  along. Reid was greatly disturbed in  spi to of himself as tho light cinib on, but  he believed it would disappear in tho  swamp, as tho will-o'-the-wisps oil did.  -~~_.~rtl-.__s-light pa������scd-_ight-cn tbroagh-the-  brakes and n-.oicd straight toward the  house. Bold had Dot tho courage to remain longer in sightcf the uncanny thing  and hastened Into tbo house. Tho light  did Dot stop ln Its direct courso until It  reached tho house, ond th.n it passed round  and round tho bouse, as Reid solemnlyeS������"-  clared to neighbors and as ho wrote to a  friond in Atlanta. It lingered about tho  premises an hour, watched by Reid nnd  terror stricken members of his household,  whon it returned 'to tho spot in tho woods  where it had first appeared, hovered a moment ln tho air and dropped to tho ground  I unci disappeared. This light continued to  appear thus ot irregular intervals for a  j month, when Reid, to escape tho worrl-  I be I mont It gnvohlm ond the tirror It kept  " his family in, sold his farm nnd moved  nwoy.  "A man named Bunt purchased tbo  place, and I think descendants of hia livo  thero yet; hut, at nny rate, every ono who  has lived on tho farm sinco Roid went  away has scon and wondered at Judo's  lightond Its queer actions, Nathan Lyons,  who lived oil the f/irm once, says ho has  soon tho light moro than a hundred times.  I havo seen lt myself threo times. Although it is always a woird and startling  apparition, It long ago ceased to be a source  of alarm or uneasiness to tho peoplo of tho  locality, and oven the superstitious negroes  manifest no torror whon it appears, although they all sacredly bollcve that it is  poor Judo, tho slave, transformed for sr mo  causo Into a ball of firo and doomed to  mnko those cccentrlo journeys about tho  placo whero sho once toiled.  "Thisstrange light Is sparkling, but not  brilliant. It invariably rises from .Tnclo'-  grnve, or where tho gravu used to bo, fcr  thoro is no mound there now, nnd nevor  disappears until It returns to that spot  Ono timo whon a man namod Uartman  Hvod on tho farm a brothor of his from  Atlanta who was skeptical about this  queor light camo up thero to Investljrnto  It. It appeared on tho ikciio tho first night;  tha Invostigator was thero and was particularly bright and erratic. It came down  tho hill, passed over tbo form and circled  round, prosoedoel np tho swamp anel then  off Into thowoods until It had gonoiri that  direction noarly a mile, whero it remained  stationary. This, Jlnrtinnn's brothor  thought, was his opportunity, nnd ho decided ��������� to go np to Judo's gravo ond bo  thoro when tho light came bnck and noto  how it disappeared. lie started rapidly up  the hill.
