vacuity, you are unable to say whether
you shall reach Its middle stage, or
whether you are to be arrested on Its
very threshold. How many wlll find
a place in Its ample obituary? To how
many will one of Its days be their
last day?
Will all, do you believe, that are
now treading the streets ot our fair

Is no one now wanting who was here

you must seize and secure every passing opportunity. For the golden moments stay not; they hasten rapidly
away, one after another, and run to
take their place with those which have
gone before them, and of which you
already deplore the loss. And what Is
of peculiar importance to you, they
are limited, and the term of their
limitation Is utterly unknown to you.
Thus, when the revolving year shall
bring us round again to tliat marked
point where we now stand, if it ever
shall bring us, then we shall look on
the year 1916, not as we have done on

People, at the Mercy of tho Germans,
Will Starve Unless Helped
At Once.
Wlll Canada help to save the starving Belgians? Will Canada give to Belgium a gift worthy of a great nation?
Will Canada do tt now, and continue
to assist as long as help Is needed?
Mr. Hoover, who Is fn charge of the
neutral committee for this relief work,
says that there are over seven million
Belgians wbo must get their dally loaf
of bread through this relief commission, and of these, thero are over three
million people who ore destttat** and |
must be fed by this charity.
As may not be generally known,
bread is the national food of the Belgians. They aro not large meat eaters, the Industrial class, who are now
without work, subsist on bread and potatoes.
The national committee which was
formed through the good offices of
Mr. Page, the ambassador of thc Untt-
ed States to Great Britain, has distributed between twenty-five and
thirty million dollars' worth of food
to the Belgians. When lt is realized
that It takes about seven million dollars a month to feed the Belgians, It
will be seen how urgent Is this cry
for help.
The despicable action of the German
governor ln not only refusing to feed
the destitute Belgians, but also forbidding any food to be imported by the
Belgians, places the whole nation In
this helpless condition, and makes
them dependent on the good will of
friendly nations.
The relief committee has done, and
is doing wonderful work, In a wonderful way, buying flour, getting It shipped to Belgium, having bread baked
and distributed every day, and selling
the bread to those able to pay for It,
at a slight advance over the cost, this
small profit, ln turn, helping to provide more bread for the three millions
who are out of work, destitute, sometimes homeless, who would starve to
death but for this splendid work.
When this work was started by Mr.
Hoover, he obtained the guarantee of
the German government that none of
tho food supptles for the Belgians
would be confiscated or commandeered for the use of the German troops.
It may be added that this promise
hns been decently kept. Mr. Brand
Whltlock, the American minister to
Belgium, publicly stated, "I am glad
to be able to say that there ts not a
single instance ln which a pound of
food, sent under our guarantee, has
been touched by the German authorities."
Belgium sacrificed herself and her
people when she took the side of the
allies against the German Invaders.
She needs help now. To wait for the
outcome of the war would be criminal. There can be no exaggeration In
the present conditions. The people
of Belgium must be fed. England Is
doing her part. The United Suites
has given millions ln money, flour and
clothing. And Canada will continue to
do—all that Is In her power, now that
the need for help Is known.
As It Is estimated that a bag of flour
costing only $2.60 will make enough
bread to feed two Belgians for a month
surely many can well afford this trifling sum for bo noble a charity. However, any rums, small or large, will be
gratefully received by tlie central executive committee for the relief work
for the victims of the war In Belgium,

A Joint meeting of Committees of
the Cranbrook Board of Trade, Agrl
cultural Association, und Farmers' Institute In connection with the establishment of a Creamery at Craubrook
was held tn the City Hall on Wednesday at 8 p. m., when the following
gentlemen were present: Messrs.
Christie, Stevenson, Beattic, Word,
McFarlane, Webb and Bassett.
Mr. Christie brought with him and
introduced to those present Mr. II. A.
Amerman of Stettlcr, Alta. who is
willing to start and operate a creamery In Cranbrook providing matter's
can be satisfactorily arranged.
Mr. Christie was elected Chairman,
and Mr. I. Bassett secretary of thc
In opening the meeting Mr. Christie
stated that he had sent out 84 letters
of inquiry to farmers, ranchers and
dairymen of the district, including
Cranbrook, Wycliffe, Marysville, St i
Mary's Prairie, Moyle, Fort Steele,
Jaffray, and Mayook. With each let-
ter a stamped addressed envelope for
reply was enclosed.
Of this number 34 replies wero to
hand, with a total ol 220 cows, 163 I
belonging to farmers, and 07 to dairy-
men. These replies also contained
promises to obtain an additional 132
cows ln the event of a Creamery starting up, thus giving a total of 352
cows apart from those whose owners'
have not yet found time to reply, Creston people figure they huve only frum
150 to 175 cows in their district.
Under these circumstunces, Mr. II.
A. Amerman feels he would be Justl-
Held in starting up a Creamery in a
small way. Mr. Amerman has had'
considerable experience ln operating
creameries ln Michigan, and other ■
parts, and during the last year has
had charge ot the Stettler branch of
the Edmonton Creameries where Uo
turned out 216,000 lb. of butter.
The estimated cast of establishing n
Creamery would be between $1500 and
$2000, but would most likely be nearer
the former figure than the latter. This
money would be raised lu nnd around
Cranbrook, Mr. Amerman putting in
9200. He would agree to pay 6 per |
cent Interest the first year, $200 cast)
and 6 per cent on tho balance the
second year, and 25 per cent of tlio
balance yearly after, thus taking In
all six years to pay off thc money sub-
The building In which thc Creamery
was installed would bc taken over by
Mr. Amerman on a rental bnsls, and
hc would also take caro of tho fuel,
light, cash liabilities for cream purchased, and other Incidentals, tho matter therefore resolving Itself Into the
question of raising the necessary money to InBtal the plant, Tlie necessary plant would Include a cream rip-
enffr, 500-lb churn, small steam boiler, electric motor, Babcock tester
and outfit, belting, shafting, etc., and
11'obaBijr dn Ice crpam freeier.Tarm-
ers would bo paid the market price
of butter per lb. of butter-fat In their
cream, and the Cranbrook Jobbers
would take thu output at a satisfactory price. Even If the Creamery
turned out a ton of butter a week, tlie
Cranbrook Jobbers could take lt all
and more too,
Mr. Beattie suggested tbat part of
tho land belonging to the Cranbrook
Electric Light Co. would be a very
suitable site, and pointed out several
advantages to be gained by locating
there; but Mr. Amerman said hc
would prefer a more central site, for,
though he agreed with Mr. Beattie
that his suggestion certainly had its
advantages, still these would be lorge-
ly discounted by the convenience and
publicity of a more central location.
It was suggested by Mr. Stevenson
that about $500 of the necessary capital should be raised locally, and the
balance be obtained on a Joint note
from the Bank of Commerce.
Mr. H. A. Amerman will put his proposition definitely in writing, and will
co-operate in securing as exact figures
as possible of the cost of the necessary plant. A subsequent meeting Will
■ then decided on Mr. Amermnn's pro-
' position and the best way of raising
i tlio required capital. The meeting
' then adjourned.
! Matters would be greatly facilitated If ln thc meantime those stamped
addressed envelopes were returned to
Mr. Christie with the desired Information, but if n few moie cows could be
| discovered he would be tlie last one
to kick. The spirit of those who have
replied is shown by one letter received whose writer stated thnt though he
was somewhat doubtful about tho success, still he had now two cows and
would buy another four In the event
! of thc Creemery starting up. But the
success of the Creamery Is not doubtful; the market for nll the butter It
can produce Is right here tn (.'ranbrook. It is up to the farmers to supply sufficient cream to keep It operating, nnd the experience of farmers*

Though it muy be Bomewliat of Bn
anomaly to say "A Happy New Year"
witli the war still raging on tlie otlier
side of tlio water, and so many ot our
own loved ones suffering for tlio cause,
yet we think it quite proper to express |
our good wishes for the coming year.
We hope and believe that 1016 will see
Victory finally crown the efforts of the
Allies, though it will not bo without
much further loss which might appal j
us if we were not convinced of tho
righteousness and Justice of the cause
for which wc light.
At the outbreak of thc war, l,ord
Kitchener nmde the statement that it
would he a three year's war, despite
the popular belief In many quarter,
tlmt a few month's campaign would
crush the Oerman hosts. His idea wus
that it would he a yenr of preparation,
a yonr of conflict nnd a yoar of victory. Wo have seen tlie fulfilment
•of his predictions so far, and the preparations of the nllles have now placed them In tho posit.on of being able
to meet the enemy with more and
better equlpmetnt on practically all
fronts, We are now experiencing the
year of conflict, and wc hope and
trust tbo spring will see the commencement of the year of victory.
Wc think thero Is every ground for

every reason to extend the old and

tho establishment of a creamery would
mean a largo increase in the number
of cows kept In the district. One
rancher who now keeps two will increase the number to twelve If n
creamery Is started. Another who
keeps r much larger herd will nearly
double the number, and many others
will add one or two. About 200 cows
am now kept by those who hnve replied to date, and there is a promised
lnorcase to this number of 125 upon

A note of joy and optimism was
struck ln all the Christmas services.
Dospltc tho fact that a great number
of the people were sick, tho choir unable to render tho music that they
had practised, the congregations were
good, though not up to the expecta
tlons of tho ambitious Rector. In a
very brief address on Christmas Day,
the Rector spoke of tho wonderful
newness of tho Christmas spirit and
asked wliere tlie ovoi fresh spirit of
ccodwlll nnd genorousness and cheer
came from. Wns it not strange that
wn should trncc It all back to the
birth of a little child—and that happening so long ago, In a place nnd of
parents obscure? The very fact of
such groat effects, nnd 1000 Christ-
masos, 11)00 renewals of this goodwill in tho world must be reckoned
a creat force, demanded a groat cause.
Thnt cause, the preacher said, was no
less thnn tho entry of God into human
history, thn Incarnation.
On Sunday morning there was a
good attendance and Percy Pnrker's
cello greatly helped the organist, Miss
Wolinan, who gave a vory acceptable
voluntary. The preacher gave a topical sermon, pointing to somo of the
greater Issues of the war in the light
of tlio Christmas message. The war,
he paid, was Just putting us Into training and bracing ns ,tp. He referred
to n remark from the recent manifesto
of London Bankers to the people of
Britain, to tho effect that the greater
part of the war expense was being
met hy the greater productiveness of
thn people, through hotter and more
effectual organization of resources. We

New Consolidated Plant at Trail Is
Preparing to Treat 5IH) Tons of
Complex Ore per Day.
Mines which heretofore have been
penalized for the zinc deposits in the
ore, and have had to leave ledges rich
In zinc will be greatly benefitted by
tlie completion of tbe new zinc smelter at Trail. Zinc bas been forced
away up In price by the war, and Is-
much more valuable now than lead,
but owing to the lack of extracting
facilities the market for zinc ores in
B. C. bas been almost nil.
One of the mines wtich bas suffered in tbe past through tliis cause Is
the Sullivan Mine nt Kimberley, then
being wry rich deposits of high grade
zinc ores there.    Witb the completion
of the Trail smelter Bomcttaie in .the
Xew Year thcro will be a very heavy
increase in the shipment of ore from
tbis mine.
According to the Vancouver Province tho Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company, Limited, has deold
ed on doubling thc plant now belli}- In
stalled at Trail for the production Of
spelter by the electro-chemical pro
cess worked out by the company. The
new plant will be capable of treating
500 tons of ore a day. from which tin
spelter produced will aggregate about
50 tous a day. The coming year will
therefore see the zinc production ol
tho province trebled.
So far tlie only zinc produced has
been the small amount from the experimental plant at Trail, probably
averaging from half a ton to a ton fl
day. The zinc from the ores
hitherto exported from tho pro-
vine* for want of a plant to treal
pounds of zinc a year. Now the production nf the province itself, thanks
to the enterprise of tbo Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company, Limited, will aggregate fiom 2f.,ooo,ooo to
.",0,01)0,000 pounds. At present marlcel
prices this zinc would have a value of
over $4,000,000, but on tho averafff
value to which the metal will doubtless revert after the war the output
will be worth about $1,500,000.
It is Interesting to know that development work done on tho Sullivan
mine by the Consolidated Mining anrj
Smelting company has proved it to bf
nne of tbo largest and most vatuabb
deposits of zinc ore on tbe contln*
Tho company Is driving a low love'
tunnel two miles in length to provid*
Tor the economical mining nnd ship
nunt of the on* from this mine
whicli will form the principal sourer
of supply for tlie new zinc plant al
Another Development.
A new property about to be opened
has presented many metallurgical difficulties on account of the complex
character of the ore. Now thc writer
Is advised the difficulties hnve been
solved and we nre to havc in Brltis'
Columbia one of tbe most Interesting
developments in the chemical treat
ment of largo bodies of low grade on*
It Ih proposed to erect a large plan*
nnd there Is no longer any doubt about
the tonnage available, The development will probably be the key to thc
operation of other deposits of similar
character now lying idle.
