Several local people took in the
stock sale at Houston on Tuesday.
In spite of the fact that some of
the stock advertised failed the
tuberculin test and others in consequence had to be substituted at
the last minute, the sale generally was a success, and the large
crowd attending was not disappointed. The organizers are to
be congratulated on their first
annual sale. It argues well for
the future.
Tea Leaves and Coffee
Grounds Not a Good
Substitute For
Real Thing
Amsterdam, June 15:���The tobacco substitute supplied to the
German armies has proved more
injurious than enemy gas attacks,
Deputy Mueller declared in the!
reichstag on Tuesday. Other
puties sharply criticised the army I
administration. General von Oven
admitted that the substitute had
been adopted reluctantly after
careful tests, but said its further
use had been stopped when it
had proved harmful to the health
of the troops.

' The Miner has received further
subscriptions this week in response to the appeal for donations to the James May Memorial
Fund. The handsome total of
$95 has now been reached; We
should like to announce in our
next issue that the hundred-mark

response to this call has been
extremely gratifying, we do not
not doubt their are many people
who knew Jim May who intend
to subscribe to the fund whose
purpose is to erect a memorial to
the deceased pioneer's memory.
Do not delay to send in your contribution; delay begets forget-
fulness. All subscriptions, which
are limited to one dollar, should
be sent to The Miner, which will
acknowledge them.

Saturday, June 15, 1918.
Most of the publicity undertaken by the government in the matter of the forthcoming registration is apparently being left to
the registrars in the various
provinces, and we are not sure
they are doing enough. It must
be born in mind word of the registration must penetrate into every place in the Dominion where
there are human beings. It is a
matter which cannot be kept too
much before the public. Men
and women of all nationalities in
the Dominion will have to register, for the only ones exempt are
cloistered nuns, persons upon active service in any of His Majesty's naval and military forces,
and persons confined in asylums
or jails. We see nothing in the
regulations which excludes Indians or Chinese or Doukhobors.
For these re sons too widespread
publicity cannot be given to the
inventory to be taken, nor can
the public be too strongly impressed with the compulsory nature of the regulations. No
doubt the different provincial
registrars are taking this into
account, and will do all within
their power to let everyone know
between   now and June 22.���Ex.
by differentiating between the
rights of her acts and those of
her enemies. She has demanded
the release of Von Rintelen, sentenced in San Francisco for plotting against the U.S., taking the
attitude that because he worked
for Germany he could not be regarded as a criminal, and threatens to make reprisals by maltreating American prisoners in
Germany if Rintelen is not released. The U. S. promptly answered that Germans in America
will be accorded the same treatment meted out to Americans in
Germany, to which Germany has
not replied, doubtless being still
gasping from this blow to her
egotism���and Rintelen is still in
jail.    Your move, Kaiser.

Germany has always prided
herself that "nobody could teach
her anything", that her "kultur"
was the acme of perfection and
unequalled by any. She has
systematically taught her people
that there was one law for Germany and another for the other
nations; that what Germany did
was right and if her actions broke
the laws of the other nations,
Germany was right and the other
nations wrong; that Germany
was faultless. Throughout the
length of this war Germany has
always observed these two codes
and has been surprised when retaliatory measures were employed against her. She introduced
poison gas and it shocked her
when the Allies used it against
her; the same in the case of air
raids, mistreating prisoners of
war. It was this policy that
brought the United States into
the war against her. Germany
thought it was within her rights
to drown neutrals if she wished
it, and never thought that the
neutrals might retaliate. Even
today, for all her much-vaunted
capacity for learning, Germany
still pursues her misguided course

J. S. Hicks, of Hazelton, made
a business trip up the Valley last | attacks,
Louis Hagen has taken a contract to clear a number of acres
on Albert H. Wilson's ranch.
A fine heifer calf, sired by the
government Holstein bull, "Colony Deirdre Cornucopis," was
born this week on P. H. Shee-
han's ranch. This is one of a
large number recently born in
the Valley.
Realizing that the future of
this Valley depends largely upon
dairying, the ranchers are aiming
to breed up their herds and ultimately own only thoroughbred
stock. They now have the services of one of the finest bulls of
the dairy type in B. C. Those
people in the Hazelton district
owning milch cows should join
the Kispiox Valley Live Stock
Association and avail themselves
of this opportunity to improve
their stock.
Germans Receive Most
Decisive Setback at
Hands of French
With the French Armies in
France, June 15:���The Germans
have not recovered from the severe blow they received on the
French left flank, where throughout the night and this morning
the battle had quieted down,
giving the Allies full opportunity j
to establish themselves strongly-.
Further to the east, around the
center, the French took the initiative, delivering a number of
small and successful counter-
As a consequence, the
village of Melicocq and the important height of Croix Ricarde
were retaken. Probably for the
purpose of making the Allies
move their reserves toward the
right flank, the Germans started
a big diversion in the vicinity of
the forest of Villers Cotterets.
The enemy progressed slightly,
and obtained a footing in Cceuvres
but this does not improve the
situation. Five German divisions
participated, two of which had
just reached the battlefield. The
attack extendeij along a front of
four miles, but met such opposition from the French that the
enemy apparently renounced his
