Ed. Shannon, Pat McGulre und
Olaf llonvol were up from Ten-mile
for a few days this week. They have
a good showing ou their lease at the
Enterprise mine, from which they recently made a shipment to the Trail
smeltery.—Slocan  Record.
Scott Thornberg and A. Edwards
expect to resume operations on the

They' had about fifteen leet more of

where ore was expected to come in.

that the property is looking very
satisfactory indeed.
Five thousand shares of Lucky Jim
stock were swapped around on the
Spokane stoc.t umuvot in one day
last week. Tbe activity In this stoc.i
was suid to be due to a rumor thut
the mine is to commence
shipments again, Immediate action
probably depends upon the ruling
bunded down hy the, Supreme court
ut Victoria this wick. The rumor thut
Lucky Jim ore is to be treated at the
Ivauhoe mill at Sandon will not go
down, and un employee ol the mine
who was iu Kaslo a few days ago
stated thut it wus intended to do
this.—Kaslo  Standard.
According to the Spokesman-Review a report has been sent in by the
superintendent of the Humbler-Cariboo, to the head oilice in Spokane,
which states that a new strike has
been made at the mine, a hitherto unopened up on the 900-ft. level. Assays
gave JliS ounces silver and '■ 65 per
cent. lead.
J. A. Carter was down from the
Flint, which he has been developing
nil winter. He says that the report
to the effect that he recently opened
up four fnet of clean ore on this
property is so much moonshine. He
is encouraged by the results   of    the

Bwored the description ot any other
product hitherto found with'in the
radius of this camp, says the Phoenix
Pioneer, tn color it was extreme
black, and a puzzler to all to whom
Mr. Bassett showed it. The mystery,
however,  has been Holved iliy W.  Fleet
Robertson, of the provincial department of mines, to whom a sample was
sent by N. B. Nelson, ol the Granby
company's engineering stall, and the
result is that I'hoenix is one of the
two other known localities where
such specimens have been picked up.
The report states tbat this "Strang
cr" is a piece ol chi'omite, which usually consists of iron oxide and
chromium, hut what is more remarkable is the presence in it of microscopical diamonds similar to that
found a few years ago in the Tulameen, and examined hy Mr. Oamsell
of the Dominion Geological Survey.
It is a very scarce commodity, and
up to UM has never been found In
any other locality than Arkansas and
the Tulameen, In the latter place it
is iissocint id with platinum, bul
the valines obta'lned from it were very
small.
IMPROVEMENT AND INCREASE
The advice given in thc most recent announcement ol the department
of agriculture at Ottawa to make
lind produce more rather
than the cultivation of excessive acres, should he Canada's
aim. Improved production is only
possible by the use of good, pure
seed and by assiduous and know-
ledgetul attention to the soil. Experience is undoubtedly in (arming as in
all other objects in life, the best
instructor, but just us fertilizers belp
the soil, so does acquiring the results of experiments made by others
make the road easier to the lesson
that 'is to be learned. Never was
there bo much necessity for thoroughness and earnestness as now when the
markets of the world are wider open,
when they are being shitted and former occupants are receiving notice
to quit.
As proof that, there is abundant
room lor increased production by
improvement, an oflicial statement as
follows is presented of the average
yield of various products last year,
and of the average that is possible;
Avge.    I'oss.

Potatoes   119.4"     450.
Turnips 421.81   1000.
By "possible", it is explained, is
meant results actually obtained at
the experimental farms and by many
farmers under intensive cultivation.
A co-operative association     to   acquire  and   supply water   for  domestic

jlormed at Edgewood.
It isn't wise to Jump to conclusions th«se days when people tell you
a tale of woe and ask your help. The
following conversation, which is said
to  have  taken  place recently,  le   an
.illustration of this:
I "Madam," said the tattered and
torn  suppliant  to     the      benevolent
I lady who answered his timid rap at
the door, "hnve you any old clothes
vou can spare for an unfortunate victim of the European war?"
"I think I hnve, my poor man; but
bow does this happen? You cannot
have been in this wnr surely?"
"No. madam," humbly replied the
sufferer: "but my wife h-is sent nil
my clothes to the Belgians."

PARAGUAY'S FLOWER  TREEl
Thousands of Square Miles of Forests
Blaze With Blossoms.
A great many of the big etrees of
Paraguay—the giants—Mower ln the
spring anil summer, and vast masses
of the most gorgeous blooms are at tbe
disposal of tbe bees. In facet, lt was
dllllcult for one who has never seen
lt even to imagine these thousands of
square miles of forest ablaze with
gold and heliotrope, white, yellow.
pink and green blossoms during tb*
flowering season.
Curiously enough, tbe two trees
which attain the greatest size and almost invariably stand head and shoulders above the general mass bear tbe
most beautiful flowers. They are tb*
lapacho and lapacho crespo, the former having large heliotrope and purple blooms—something like Canterbury
bells—clusters of which egrow at the
end of each twig. The lapacho crespo
has a bloom exactly similar In shape,
but of a rich golden yellow color, Both
these trees array themselves In foil
regalia of bloom before a single leaf
appears, and lt ls only after the flow*
ers begin to fall that the foliage coin-
meoces to appear.
When nil the other trees hnve censed
flowering there remains tbe bitter
orange, of which the forests are full
and the blossom of which imparts ts
the honey a particularly delicate flax

FREEDOM IN  FRANCE.
No Country In ths World Where lm
dividual Liberty Is Greater.
I believe that there is no country 10
the world where there ia greater individual freedom than ln Prance. Every;
one apparently does Just about as be
pleases. Tbe gendarmes are not watching for Infractions and never seem tf*
Interfere with anybody. People tumble their dogs into the public fountains and enjoy the parks with a freedom that would not for a moment b*
permitted In New York. Yet no on*
does anything really harmful. I mentioned these things to tbe American
consul, who said:
"Yes, tee French bave great individual license and are too proud of It ts
abuse lt Whatever tbey lack Is epo-
lltlcal freedom they make np In personal liberty. Tbat ls tbe cblef article
of their faith. The gendarme seldom
lays hands on a citizen. Where something really serious happens tbere are
usually serious consequences, >bnt It
doe^s not often happen."
Then he told me of a runaway youth
whom he wished apprehended and held
for American advices. Tbe authorities*
said: "We will watch him for yon, w*
will keep you posted as to hia com-
Inegs, Ills goings and his doings, bat we
cannot lay hands on him. Tbere Is no
warrant for so serious a steep.''—Albert

Smokr Consuming 8<ohemts.
The most ingenious scheme ever in*
vented for doing away with tlie smoke)
ditllcult.v with steam locomotives was;
tried some years ago on the Metropolitan railway of England. "Between
tho rails a trough was laid, and tbe engine carried a sliding shoe device
adapted to elide over this and to open
doors as it passed whereby smoke let
trom tbe stock to tlie shoe was enabled
to pass into the trough, thence being;
exhausted to a collecting plant" Another scheme for solving tbe smoke difficulty was to construct a series ol
smokestacks lending to tbe back of th* j
tram. This would have kept the cln-
dera out of tbe passengera' eyes poessl-
bly, but would hardly bave been sufficient to mako the smoke settle on tee
company's right of way.—Indianapolis
