Athens: Admiral du Fournet,
commander of the Anglo-French
fleet in the Mediterranean, addressed a complimentary note to
the Greek government yesterday
demanding, on behalf of the
Entente Allies, the control of the
Greek police, the prohibition of
Greek citizens from carrying
arms, the stoppage of the sending
of war munitions to Thessaly.and
the lifting of the Greek embargo
on the transportation of Thes-
salian wheat. The Greek cabinet,
with the chief of the Greek general staff, sat until midnight discussing the note. When the
council resumed this morning all
the Allied demands were accepted.
It is now learned that the reason for the presentation of the
Allied note was the discovery
that a conspiracy existed in
Greece to officer the Greek fleet
with anti-Entente sympathizers,
and concentrate troops, stores,
guns and material in Thessaly,
in the rear of the Allied armies.

the bombardment being particularly severe in the regions of

but intense artillery activity is in
evidence both north and south of
the Somme. The British made
progress between Gueuedcourt
and Les Boeufs. taking 150 German prisoners.
Boston: A submarine of unidentified nationality has been
reported 200 miles east of New
York. The course of the vessel
is not stated.
Newport: A far-flung patrol
of torpedo-boat destroyers has
been charged with the double
duty of enforcing neutrality observances and saving lives in the
event of further submarine raids.
The entire available destroyer
fleet of the United States is now
patrolling the coast.
Washington: Admiral Mayo,
commanding the U. S. Atlantic
fleet, has been notified by the
navy department to survey the
New England coast and investigate the reports that belligerent
ships have established a submarine base or wireless plants in

No. 7
Punch the other day contained a picture of a man rowing a
boat loaded with the members of his family. It was plainly all he
could do.   And the title of the picture was, "A Convalescent."
The humor of the situation is evident to everyone, but there is
one person who may not enjoy it as much as the rest, and he is the
man in the boat.
Joking apart, that picture ought to make us think.
When the convalescent soldier has finished convalescing and
has to take up the oars in real earnest, how is he going to pull
himself and his family over the sea of Life?
His country, through the Military Hospitals Commission, helps
him by providing a highly efficient system of curative treatment,
including carefully graduated physical exercises to restore his
strength, and practice in various indoor and outdoor occupations,
which increase his earning capacity.
Every man not totally disabled, however, will chiefly rely on
his own exertions, for he is not a child and does not want to be
carried like one.
Being a man he will naturally take full advantage of treatment
skilfully arranged for his benefit, and, on getting his discharge, he
will seize any opportunities of work within his power. This is the
least he can do, in justice to himself and his country.
But his fellow-citizens must co-operate with him, either by
providing him with work themselves, or by making sure that the
organizations formed to get him work are using all possible energy
and ingenuity with that object.
The country needs his talents. There is not a man without at
least one talent, and if he has only one it is all the more important
that he shall be given work in which that talent will have full
To get every man v\ork, and the right kind of work for his
ability, is a big undertaking, and it will be very much bigger by
and by.
All who are willing to help should communicate with the
organizations formed for that purpose.
The country can succeed in the undertaking only by a "long
pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogether".
The Returned Soldiers' Employment Commission has charge of
this work in British Columbia. The local organization, which is
co-operating with the commission, is the Soldiers' Aid Committee,
and every resident of the district has an opportunity to assist in
the work by subscribing to its funds.
Trail Refining Copper
Trail's electrolytic copper refin- j
ery, which has been in operation
for a few weeks, will shortly begin the shipment of electrolytic!
copper. The melting building���I
where the copper sheets as taken
from the tanks are melted into
shipping shape���is now completed
and the reverberatory furnace,in
which the melting will be done,
is to be ready almost any day.
After that the plant will begin
turning out and shipping the
simon-pure red metal at the rate
of five tons daily���the first product of its kind in Canada. The
capacity of the plant is ten tons
' The fire-proof building, located
close to the lead refinery, has 96
tanks in it for separating the
copper from the gold and silver,
and about half of these are now
in use. As with the ordinary
practice 48 tanks will handle the
present output of copper of the
Consolidated, the other 48 to be
utilized in taking further deposits
of copper from the anodes, thus
reducing the quantity and weight
that must eventually sent back
and put into blister copper form.

Free Seed for Farmers
By instructions from the Hon.
Minister of Agriculture, a distribution of superior sortsof grain
and potatoes will be made during
the coming winter and spring to
Canadian farmers. The samples
for general distribution will consist of spring wheat (about 5
lbs.), white oats (about 4 lbs.),
barley (about 5 lbs.), and field
peas (about 5 lbs.). These will
be sent out from Ottawa. A
distribution of potatoes in samples
of about 3 lbs. will be carried on
from several of the experimental
farms, the Central Farm at Ottawa supplyingonly the provinces
of Ontario and Quebec. All
samples will be sent free by mail.
Only one sample of grain and
one of potatoes can be sent to
each farm. As the supply of
seed is limited, farmers are
obliged to apply early. Requests
received after the end of December will probably be too late.
Anyonedesiring samples should
write (post free) to the Dominion
Cerealist, Experimental Farm,
Ottawa,for an application blank.

New Peace River Pamphlet
The Department of the Interior
at Ottawa has just issued through
its Railway Lands Branch a very
comprehensive pamphlet dealing
with that new Mecca of the land
seeker, the Peace River country.
While a few pioneer settlers
from time to time penetrated this
portion of Northern Canada, it
has only been within the past
few years that it has been possible to regard the great Peace
River Valley as within the reach
of the homeseeker. The almost
insurmountabledifficulty intaking
in supplies and machinery, and
the corresponding task of marketing the crop rendered this
fertile area of Canada's hinterland a veritable 'terra incognita.'
While���as has been said���but
few have explored this district
many will be surprised to learn
that so long ago as 1876 grain
from the Peace River captured
the trophy in competion with the
world at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia.
This publication deals with all
the subjects which naturally suggest themselves to the average
inquirer. Under the headings of
Agriculture, Timber, Minerals,
Game, and Transportation the
pamphlet gives a mass of information. Climate and rainfall are
also treated of. Numerous extracts are given from th e reports
of well - known explorers and
scientists who have visited the
country, dating from the beginning of last century down to the
present day. There is a concensus of opinion among these authorities as to the adaptability of
the country to the growth of all
grains and root crops. The great
amount of sunshine which obtains in these northern latitudes,
renders vegetation both rapid
and luxuriant.
In the Peace River district the
seasons change very quickly, so
that as soon as the snow passes
the ground is ready for seeding.
The soil, in some places, consists
of a rich, black loam. In others
it varies from a blue clay with a
topsoil of sandy loam���from two
to six inches���to a sandy loam,
much desired by wheat growers.
Vegetables attain a large size.
During a large part of the winter cattle and horses may remain
It is a country adapted both to
mixed farming and ranching.
This useful publication is being
distributed free of charge by the
Railway Lands Branch, Department of the Interior, Ottawa.
Sacrificing Fertility
We have always contended,and
here wish to reiterate, that the
community which produces the
raw commodity will always be
the poor community as compared
with the community producing
the finished product. The selling
of hay at $14 and even $20 a ton
means a depleted community in
the long run. It means land
starvation and moral starvation.
It means putting dimes in one
pocket and taking out dollars
from the other. We have been
doing this for twenty years in
some parts of British Columbia,
and then wonder why the development of agriculture has been
so slow.���Enderby News.
