the Holden Star.
The planing mill will continue operations all winter, aril thc shut

The winter's program in the log-

Grand Forks Sum: Tbe Sun today
takes much satisfaction Mn celebrating us fifteenth birthday. In spite of
the eroakings of those who have no
special use for tbe paper, and who
have never contributed a cent towards its sujijiort during all the
years it Mas been published, we feel
as certain of ultimate victory as the
.•.Hies do in the present conflict. We
might add thai if the allies will continue to Wage war against their enemies w:th as much determination,
under as great difficulties as we at
times in the past, have been compelled to labor, they will achieve com-
tdete success even though the balance
of the neutral world should turn
against them. Our task in the past
has not always leen a pleasant one.
The future mey have brighter days
in store. It it bas not—well, Tbe
Pun will continue I > make its weekly

thi subjects of "Agricultural Education in Manitoba," "Agricultural Instruction In Belgium," "Sehool Con-
solidation," and other matters including a list, briefly explained, of
the United States federal appropriations for agricultural instruction!. The
report shows, among other things,
that one hundred and tilty-five permanent instructors, jirofessors, supervisors, directors, demonstrators and
many assistants, have been appointed
by the various provinces and are being provided for through the Agricultural i Instruction Act. In addition,
a large number ol magnificent buildings have been erected Irom these
finds throughout Canada. Tbe report embodies 145 pages ol text, in
addition to sixteen pages illustrating
the buildings constructed. The report shows that the work done by
each province is varied according to
local needs and conditions. Much of
it, however, is common to all the provinces and varies only by the method
by which il is carried out. It is being distributed to applicants by the

Furs are more fashionable than ever

tbe anticipated demand of the cutters

trimmings were for miles, uot yards,

The low price uf muskrat created the
demand for Hudson seal coats. A
well made, good quality coat would
be bought at wholesale Ior around
one hundred dollars. Weather conditions throughout the United States
during .Inly, August and September
were extremely favorable Ior the salo
of neck i>ieces for mid-summer wear,
such as the very fashionable animal
scarf. This extraordinary demand for
the manufactured goods created a
big demand for the raw furs and
stocks in tbe hands ol tbe raw fur
dealers are practically closed out.
This will unquestionably create a big
demand for thc November and December fresh caught, goods and, no doubt
make the trapping of fur hearers a
very profitable occupatioci.

Zinc Production is
Boomed by War Prices
Zinc has shown a firm tendency of
late, and the spelter producing com-
panies feel confident of a strong market for a long time to come. This is
reflected in the higher prices of stocks
.... the nine mining companies—American Zinc company stock sold at .$09J
In a very interesting article ou the
;:inc situation during these war times
the -Muung World says:
The effects of the war on the American mining industry is hest shown
in its relation to the production and
sale ol lead and zinc ore in the United -t.it s, particularly In tbe Missouri Kansas Oklahoma district. The amount of zinc ore (including calamine)
mined and sold in the Joplln district
during the first nine months of the
current year, according to a statement issued by tne Lyon Investment
( impany, has been i;;.;,vi'.i,2i: pounds,
am untirg to $215,591,314 In value.
Ihis production exceeds in value the
district's record year of 1912, when
more than MO',000',COO pounds of ore
was i roduced and sold for $15,454,016
As compared with the corresponding
nine moaths in 1914, the current
years    utput shows an  mcrcsj     of
.  IS, .",-. pounds, or 9.4 per cent,   in
'   n agi   and an increase of >\071,S27

rock slide practically destroyed the
camp of the bridge building gangs
and necessarily a good deal of txino
was consumed in building a new
camp the men in the meantime having to Me taken to Hope for meals
and beds.
At the present time there Ib about
three miles of steel to lay on the
line, this being between Ladner creek
Lil miles east of I lope, and Boston
Bar, three miles this side of Ladner
Creek. The Ladner creek bridge Is
about one third finished, but tlu
work on the remaining two-thirds
will take more than twice
as lorn: to do as that on the
firsl ilui! on account ol new difficulties     which     have  been encountered,
This side of Ladner Creek and between it and Boston Bar there are
two trestle bridges yet to be built.
These of course cannot be commenced
till alther Ladner Oreek bridge or the
one ii Boston Bar is completed bo
that material nnd supplies may be
tnken  to thut   trestle  bridge sites.
At Boston Bar the trestle work at
each end of the budge was finished up
about a week ago. The steel simn for
the centre is,probably installed hy
this time.
The work now remaing therefore
comprises the finishing up of the Ladner Creek bridge at the other side of
the three mile gap, whicli is in itself
ijuite a task, tbe building of the two
w.oilen trestles and the laying of 3
miles of steel. A week would sullire,
of course, to lay the steel if the
bridges ware done.
It is not expected that the winter
weather will hinder operations to any
extent, although incessant rains rc
cently, have delayed progress somewhat. Tbe snowfall in the l.ndner
Creek region is not by any means as
great, as at Coquahallu Summit on
this side.
A good deal of interest is being
taken here in thc proposal to make
B cer"mony of driving the last, sjdko
in the Hope Mountain section, and it
is ejuite possible that the Kettle Valley railway mnnnger will be asked to
run nn excursion in connection with
the event in order to permit citizens
to get an idea of the Hope Mountain
line as it will appear this winter.—

The increasing popularity ol electric
cooking is well evidenced by the     nt-
tention  which is being given  ' i   ihis
[ subject     in the press.   That it is     a
tte:,      cleaner      and   more B  nltaiy
; way of cooking was never questioned.
The only objection has been the high
, cost in compuriFon with coal, gas or
, other     fuels.   Formerly the cost     of
1 both the   electric range, or oven  and
i thc current were practically prohibitive.   Two or three years ago the prices of     electric energj   in mosl  c,,nadian centres were so reduced that el-
ectric  cooking  became  cheaper    than
tbe   old   tnetbee,!-.    This  has  bad      the
■•Me- .,''   ii nulatlng manufacture    of
ectric cooking devices, as it
became     evident that a much lamer
field was bcintr opened and an enormous demand  could not fail to follow
