James B. Haggin, who died nt his

was born in Harrodsburg, Ky., in
18*27. He waB associated with Marcus
Daly, Senator Hearst and Lloyd
TeviB in the beginnings of the great
Anaconda mine at Butte and the original Anacondo company. It was the
willingness ol Messrs. Haggin and
Hearst to back w'ith their money
Marcus Daly's faith in Dutte as a
great copper camp which developed
and revealed to thc world the great
wealth of Anaconda hill. He was also interested In many mining propositions Irom Alaska to Peru. More
than 30 years ago the British Columbia government oflered Haggin and
Hearst six townships of land lf they
would develop the Bluebell mine on
Kootenay lake. They paid a visit to
the property and mude plans to
build a t»wn where Nelson now

further was done. This information
was given to the wiiUT by Billy

Next summer the continent will not
be overrun by wealthy tourists as it
has been in recent years. The tremendous damage and disarrangement
of the war will not have been repaired. Kurope v. ,11 be too busy straightening up it: Household afi'airs to receive visitors. The United States and
Canada may therefore g expect its
tourists to strike for new fields, and
particularly those nt home. The "see
your home country first" movement
will surely get an impetus Irom the
devastation in Europe. As most of
the trans Atlantic tourist traffic is
American, Canada should attract
mi rked attention.
Canadian scenery cannot he sur-
nisped. In the Rocky Mountain districts accommodation tor high-class
tourist traffic is ample. In fact, from
Frince Edward Island to Nanaimo
this country is a paradise ol glorious
natural beauties, and the blase habitues of ethe Old World resorts can
turn with real benefit to the picturesque and accessible wilds ol this
country. To Canadians especially tho
duty of seeing their home country
first ought to be Imperative, familiarity with tbe Strand or Piccadilly,
cr the Champ dr tion, or Unter den
Linden does not excuse Ignorance ot
the rugi ,; grandeur ol the Rockies
or Selkirks. or the qjiaintnesses ol

ways coi .1 I i c in i aign In the
Unil s. as well as at     home,
they ought to get much of the tour-
illy gi Ing to France.
Kranco-l'russian war of 43 years ago.
For some of the best elements,in our
populaelon, and some of the best individuals 'in our public nnd business
life, we arc indebted to that conflict.
In the same way this nation will be
helped in every respezt by this indirect result of the present war. We
have no better immigrant than the
Philadelphia Public Ledger: Even if
the cathedral at Rheims be not totally ruined, as the later reports in-
dicate, the destruction wrought upon
it by German guns is a crime against
civilization for which no atonement
is possible. Not only France, but all
the world is aghast at such vandalism. The excuse of military necessity
is too feeble to bc considered. In all
the wars that ancient city has seen,
the venerable pile has been spared,
it is left to Germany to emulate the
worst atrocities oi the Dark Ages, to
desolate the country of tbe enemy
for desolation's sake.
llliiems Cathedral was at once n
shrine of religion, of art and of pat-
rlotism. The pope's expression ol
grief nnd horror represents the feeling of the whole Catholic church,
and its members, even in Germany,
must be overcome with shame. Lovers
of art and architecture have been
quick to deplore the outrage. No
building of the Kind in all Europe
was richer iu priceless treasures.
These cannot be restored, though the
wulls remain. Tainting, tapestries,
relics, stained glass of wonderful
beauty—the loss is irreparable. The
"culture*' which Germany is advancing with tire and sword will hardly be
regarded as a compensation. And to
Frenchmen there is a further loss,
and one that touches them keenly. It
was to Rheims Jeanne d'Arc brought
Charles VII. to be crow.ncd—Jeanne,
the Maid of Orleans, the savior of her
country in all its deepest misery, the
symbol of all that France most honors today.
If anything were needed to complete
the score against the government
which provoked this terrible conflict,
ti alienate st'ill further the sympathy
of neutral nations, it would be this
barbarous policy of wanton ravage
which has characterized thc movements ul the German armies from thc
'irst. "Who breaks, pays." The truth
.if the Italian proverb will be borne
home In Germany when defeat conies,
.s it is almost certain to do.

Basketball Season at
Y.M.C.A. How Beginning
The basket ball season is just
starting, and already the old teams
have applied for practice nights, indicating that the sport is going to
he lively this year. It is hoped that
all tbe old teams will organize and
get into the big senior league. The
intermediate und school leagues will
l.e soon organized and regular practice commenced. A high school class
has been formed and the boys have
caught the scbool spirit and by all
indications are going to make the
game a great success. Their chief
ambition seems to be to out do the
intermediates in gymnastics, athletics
and  basket ball.
The business mens' class is growing
in Im th numbers and enthusiasm and
all it needs now to make it an ideal
class  is a few  more members.

For Frying
The goodness and
delicacy of fried foods depends
upon the fat used for frying.
Swift's Silver-Leaf Lard
may be heated to a high degree without scorching or discoloring. This puts a delicate brown crisp crust on the food so
quickly that it prevents its becoming grease
soaked,  and  it  enables  you   to  use yff00^^
Swift's Silver-Leaf Lard many times for j^^ v.	
frying before clarifying.
It is economical, pure, efficient and

Carry Your Patriotism
Into Your Buying!
For ten years we have been talking practical
patriotism, urging Canadians to buy the Canadian^
xnade Gillette Safety Razor in preference to the
cheap German makeshifts.
The war has clinched our arguments.
So confident are we of the future of the only
safety razor made throughout, in Canada, that we
are bringing out within a few weeks a New Model,
It's British to the hilt, and looks the part. The
price stands at $5.00—no increase over the
•Standard Gillette Set. Watch for the Gillette
"Bulldog" ("what we have we'll hold") in the
shop windows—you'll like it.
The war has not checked Gillette progress. Our
factory is running full time, with complete staff.
Thus we are doing our part toward maintaining
Canada's prosperity. Do yours by buying, in
preference, goods
