Kamloops is Praised
By Revelstoke Citizen
" What impresses me more than
anything else ahout your city of
Kamloops is the size, quantity and
imposing appearance of your permanent buildings," said W.A. Foote prior
to his departure, from Kamloops,
after having taken an active part in
the Yale-Kootenay trap shooting
league matches. Mr. Foote is a prom
inent ' contractor of Revelstoke and
his opinion may be taken at considerable worth, says the Kamloops
Standard;
"There is nothing that impresses a
visitor to any city so much as handsome business blocks, public build -
nigs and cement sidewalks, all of
which show growth along lines of
1 ermanency and indicate that the
people by so investing their money
hive faith ill their home town. 1
vas delighted to have the opportunity of being driven round Kamloops
and see what rapid progress has been
made in city building and I noticed
particularly that the work was of a
solid and lasting nature while the
architecture aud proportions of the
many buildings I passed were gratifying to the experienced eye. Your
lighting system is far more advanced than many cities of the Dominion
three and four times the size of Kamloops, while the general uir of pro-
gressiveness and prosperity, especially during these hard times, shows
that the Kamloops people arc nothing if not optimistic."
Mr. Foote expressed much pleasure
in his visit to Kamloops, and the
lavish hospitality extended to him
nnd other visitors from Revelstoke.
Fire Destroys Million
Feet Standing limber
On Thursday, July :!0 at 2:15 an
outbreak of fire was observed on the
i hill   to  thc  east      aloug      Penticton
creek,  says the     Penticton     Herald.
' The lire wardens, under Fred Sutherland rushed at once to the scene.
The tire, which was caused by a risher
man's camp lire, was found to have
already made considerable headway,
owing to the wind, and the exceed
ingly dry condition of the undergrowth. The conflagration had
spread over a large urea, aod it was
seen that the first force of men sent
out    was    quite Inadequate to copo
with it. A call for volunteers was
sent out, and on Sunday Mr. Sutherland nad :;.", men actively engaged.
After most strenuous efforts fire
guarding, trail cutting and back firing, they were enabled to get the
tire under control by Wednesday the
5th, although great vlgllence Is still
necessary.

Prairie Wheat Crops
Alarm Minister
The probable failure of the entire
wheat crop of the northwestern provinces due to the abnormal drought
of the lust few weeks has aroused
deep anxiety at Ottawa and acting
on instructions from Sir Robert Borden, the Hon. Martin Hurrell, minister of agriculture, left Vancouver for
Calgary to investigate conditions at
first hand, says the Kamloops Standard.
He stayed over in Kamloops for a
few minutes while the private car in
which he will travel to the northwest
was coupled to the regular train.
"Every day the prospect getB more
alarming," said Mr. Hurrell, as ho
walked up and down the platform,
"and coming as it does on the top
of tbe outbreak of hostilities in Europe it makes the outlook a peculiarly  dark   one."
Mr, Burrell is anxious to proceed to
Ottawa in order to confer with Sir
Robert, and tiis colleagues nnd at the
conclusion of the tour of investigation lie will proceed direct to thc
capital to join his brother ministers
iu conference.
"(if course I can't make two ears
of corn grow where one is growing
now." said Mr. Hurrell, "but the
premier is anxious to get lirst hand
Information in what promises to bea
most critical position, in order that
adequate protection and relief may
be made for the farmers who will suffer by the failure of the crops.

The motto of the International Irrigation congress, which meets in Western Canada this year, "Save the Forests, Store the Floods," is readily
appreciated in British Columbia.
Iu the valleys of the Kootenay river, Okanagan lake, Thompson and
Fraser rivers there are about 100,000
acres of land which are greatly Improved in productive capacity by
irrigation. The streams trom which
water must be secured, Without exception, bead In timbered hills.
The    timber    in    the headwaters  ol
these streams is not at present valu
able for agricultural purposes,     its
value  to   the      public,      however,     is
shown    by   its   Influence    on    stream
iiow.
A stream to be valuable for Irrlga
tion must supply water regularly dur
ing the dry summer season. Watersheds barren of forests act like roofs
They pour the waters from spring
rains und melting snows down over
their bare rock slopes in torrents in
the early season when water is not
needed for irrigation. When midsummer conies and wuter is needed for
man and fruit crops, these streams
are dry. Forested watersheds, on
the other hand, do not give up then
waters so prodigally. The timber
protects the snow and holds its melting later in the summer The waters from rain and melting snow are
caught by the vegetation beneath the
trees, soak into the spongy soil cohering of moss, mulch and decayed
vegetation, are led by myriad little
channels into the open soli and seep
gradually down, appearing below iu
springs, which feed the streams all
summer  long.
Certain forests In the province, particularly in the mountains around
Okanagan lake, are given special care
m lire protection because of the immense value ot the water yielded I.y
their forested slopes. A high level
trail has heen built around Okanagan lake to facilitate patrol by for
i st guards.
This trail commands ;: view of the
Whole Okanagan valley. laterals iu
the larger tributary valleys connect
j it with lettlements along the lake
below and with look-out men statiou-
■ cd on outstanding mountain peaks
above.
The use of the look out man    is   a
new   feature   of   forest   lire   protection
In Western Canada,   in the Okanagan'
'district  two      mountain    peaks  have
been chosen  from which  any  Blgn    Ol
[smoke can be spotted and accurately
(located  in  the  forested   watershed  of
Okanagan lake.   These look-outs, between 15,000  and 7,000 leet  high,    are
'connected  by  telephone  with  the District     Forester's   office.   A  man     is
constantly  on      duty    on    each  from
'June   t'i   September.    His    equipment
Consists   of   held   glasses   and     good
maps.    At   the  first  thin  spiral       ol
smoke be telephones   the particulars
]to the district office, the local guard
| is warned and the tiiv controlled before  reaching   extensive   proportions.
Citizens  of  the districts  have    co.
operated in meeting the cost of this
fire  insurance.   Towns  dependitl

against exempting enemy merchant •
men from capture and confiscation,
The right of a belligerent to seize and
confiscate the private shipping of an
enemy nation is valued highly by
Great Britain because its powerful
navy, and array of cruisers in every
sea, enable it in time of war to keep
the naval fores of an enemy busily
engaged, while at. tbe same time sparing warships to harry the merchantmen of the enemy oil t.he seas. Privateering was abolished by the Declaration of Paris, L850, but thc advent of the convertible merchantman
—a modern maritime development —
further complicated the question of
the right of capture at sea, and at
Tbe Hague Conference of I9H7 and
the London Conference of lilfl'.l Bri-|
lain declined to surrender the prin-
(iplc of  warring .. i     with      the
peaceful   subjects,    as    well   ns    tho
armed   forces  of an   enemy  nation.
The present nig naval conflict will
work out for the first time, whether
under modern conditions of ocean
shipping Britain has been wise to adhere to the old principle. Sonu
eminent legal minds, such as that of
Earl l.oieburn, who was recently
Lord High Chancellor ol the United
Kingdom, have contended that Britain had more to lose than to gain
by keeping private shipping liable to
(.ipture. In 1910 tbe British tonnage
hub 13,580,000 tons, compared with
Germany's     3,000,000   tons, France's
I,!  tons, and the  United  States
sOO.OOO tons. The vast preponderance
■ ■I the British carrying trade makes,

Reasons are given by
"Economic Advertising"
"It is keeping everlastingly at it the ijuiet. con-
tinuouH brand of publicity that worries its way
through to success in the long run and it if ditlicult
to find any justification for breaking the continuity
of advertising during hot weather.
"Clothes have to be worn and the necessaries of
life provided for, and almost every article with the
exception of purely seasonable goods is in equal demand iu the summer as in the winter.
"Then, again, in the .-ummer people do not work
so hard there is more leisure time, and hist because
they have more time for reading it is logical to state
that they have more time for reading advertising.
"To the modern housewife any respite from the
glaring pavements is welcome. She reads the advertising columns of the local paper, and makes it her
shopping guide, especially in the summer. Missing
at this time is losing momentum which will take
considerable time and expense to regain at a later
date.''

Excitement over the recent discov-'

has been visited by numbers from all
partB of the province attracted by
the strike. All who have returned hy

value of the camp—West Yale Review

As a result of thc Grand Forks

Copper mine at Chewelah, which
shipped its coiiceiitriit.es to the Gran-
ly plant, also has suspended indefinitely, und the majority of the 125
men employed by thc United Ooppcr
company have been laid oil. The suspension conies at a decidedly Inopportune time for the big Chewelah copper property, as the company contemplated resuming dividend payments in a comparatively short time,
but, while no direct information is
obtainable, the ollicials of the Corporation being out of the city, it is
believed that disbursements will have

Rod McCrimmon was in town last
Tuesday on business. He reported to
t.he Herald that he and his partner
were working in a fine shoot of ore.
They drifted from the bottom of the
shaft on the Canadian King clam,
and within three feet of thc shaft
they ran into eighteen inches of clean
high grade ore and it iB still with
them and looking better with every
round of holes they make. The
shaft was the first work done on the
property when it. was staked, but
thc ore did not show up as anticipated and it was abandoned. The recent
work has proved that, the shaft had
been sunk on the tail end of thc ore
body.
McCrimmon and Stewart are putting in long hours and working hard

they will have a carload ready for

During the    week there have    been
several  locators    out  staking  claims
for placer gold in the district.     Up
to    the time of going to press there
have been  only  two to record    their
' I
claims,   the   others  no   doubt  taking
advantage of      the 15 days   allowed
for  recording.
The     two    claims     recorded     are
Known as the Bwen Placer Claim and
the Hurry  Placer claim and are sit-!
nated  on  Hospital  creek  on the  Wy- .
clifle road.
In the neighborhood we are in-
formed that there have been six oth-
1 er claims staked, while on the St.
Mary's Prairie there have been about
twelve claims staked. In thc meanwhile we understand that prospecting
is going on apace and before another
issue of this paper wc shall perhaps
hear of a large number of claims being recorded. |
It is a well known fact that in this
district there are large bodies of ore
of a very  valuable nature,  but as yet
though we hear from time to time of
several  valuable     finds    being made,
they have not proved up to cxpecta- •
tion.   However,  we nre confident   in
the future and  what it holds for this .
district in mining, and the way proe-
; ecting is being pushed at present In-!
incites that it   will  not  he  long    be-
fore we bear of somebody striking it

Capper Mines are
Closed by War
The war in Europe is working havoc with the big copper producing
companies in the northwest, and property after property is closing down,
says thc Rossland Miner.
The Granby Smelting company's
mines at Phoenix, B.C. and the 10110-
ton daily capacity smelter at Grand
Forks, B.C., were closed down last
Saturday, throwing 20*10 men out of
employment, and it is believed that;
the company's mines and smelter at:
Hidden Creek, B.C. employing about i
1000 men, will suspend soon, unless
there iB a radical change in the situ-
atlon in the next week or 10 days. \
The reason assigned for thc shutdown is that the Nicholas Chemical
company, which handles thc output j
of the Granby smelters, has been '
compelled to close its plant because J
a lurgc number of its employes were
Servians who returned to Servia as '
soon as war was declared by Austria
How long the Nicholas plant will be
idle iB problematical, but in view of
existing conditions there iB little
likelihood that very strenuouB efforts
will be made to recruit the forces
nnd resume operations.

COME men, sometimes, can board the flying
street car or "monkey with the buzz-saw" in
a mill or factory, and get away with it. But that's
how accidents happen. Some men, sometimes,
can shave with an open blade razor and avoid
cutting themselves. But thousands agree that the
chances are against it.
THE
Gillette Safety Razor
was the practical forerunner of to-day's ".Safety
First" movement. What engineers are doing now
to safeguard tools and transportation, King C.
Gillette did ten years ago for that much used too^
the razor. And while he made ethe razor safe, he
also made it keener, harder and handier than the
old open blade.
That thin, electrically tempered blade, gripped
rigid in the adjustable holder, gives the cleanest,
smoothest and quickest, as well as the safest shave
man has ever enjoyed.
