per cent, more than any previous
wheat crop in her history.   The
dairy sent from the port of Montreal butter and cheese valued at
$23,705,000,  exceeding  the  exports of 1914 by over $5,000,000.
In mineral production Canada
has  made   numerous  advances.
Copper and zinc refining plants
have been established at Trail,
B.C., and  are  treating  native
ores.   Improvements have been
made in certain steels to enable
them to be used for shell purposes, Improvements have also been
made  in   the  concentration   of
molebdenum ores, the molybdenum being used in the manufacture of big gun linings and high
speed lathe tools.     The recovery
of benzol from by-product coke
ovens has been developed.   Benzol is used in the manufacture of
explosives.   In Western Canada
the discovery of  phosphate  of
lime  in   Rocky  Mountain park
should  prove of great  value to
the agricultural interests,
Canada's fisheries have received especial attention, not only in
the production but in the marketing. Both on the Atlantic and
Pacific coast advances have been
made. Due to conditions brouirht
about by the war, Canada last.
year placed her fish upon the-
British market, and it is hoped
that some species may be permanently established there.
Progress has been made in the
cultivation of ideals looking to
improvements in our homes and
our municipalities. Conferences and meetings have been held
from coast to coast. Nova Scotia
possesses advanced town-planning legislation. Other legislatures have special town-planning
a.ts under consideration. On
January 20th next, there will be
held at Ottawa under the auspices of the Commission of
Conservation, a Conference for
the formation of a Civic Improvement League, toenbraceall Canada , and to endeavour to secure
betterment of conditions in the
cities, towns and minor municipalities of the Dominion.
While greatly increasing her
wealth through the output of
natural resources, Canada has also made a very large saving by
reduction of her fire losses. While
the figures ara not yet available,
these, it is e^pacted. will show
substantial progress toward the
standards of other countries in
the ratio of the fire losses.
The past year has been an era
of awaking in Canada, and earnest endeavour has been made to
eliminate waste, not only in manufacturing but in mining and in
the de-.elopment of all our natural
resources.
The recruiting officer has been
busy this week, quite a number
of the boys are lining .up.
We are glad to hear that two
sons of Mr. Sam Gibbs< of this
town have donned Kahki. Reginald Gibbs in the 88th Regiment
and Harry Gibbs in the 102nd
Regiment.

The skins of two chickadees
were noticed on a lady's hat the
other day by an official of the
the Central Experimental Farm,
at Ottawa.
The chickadee is one of our
most beautiful and widely distributed birds, 70 per cent of
whose food consists of injurious
insects, To all lovers of the
Canadian woods, it is a general
favourite, There is.every reason,
humane, aesthetic and economic,
for preserving it; yet thoughtless, fashion-crazy women persist in wantonly sacrificing it and
others of man's feathered friends
to decorate their millinery.
Not all women are included in
this indictment, but the law
should be amended to reach those
who will not refrain from patronizing the slaughter of innocent
and useful birds. Already, our
legislators have forbidden the importation of foreign plumage,
but this must be supplemented by
an' act to suppress the traffic in
native birds. It should be made
illegal, not only to kill useful,
rare and insectivorous birds, but
the vendors and wearers of the
plumes of such birds should be
punished likewise.
British Columbia is called upon
to supply 36,000 more men for
active service. Already this province has contributed over 20,000
It is a big order for a spersely
populated province, but we wili
take off our coats, roll up our
sleeves and go at it. If we don't
produce the 36,000 men it will be
because they are not here.
British Columbia takes this war
as seriously as any part of the
Empire. We realize that for
British Columbia the war is a serious matter. We are a maritime
province and our material progress is largely along the maritime. If the allies were defeated
British Columbia would be under
the domination of the Prussian
banner of murder, both on land
and sea.
That is one way of looking at
the matter, Another is that
British Columbia is a part of the
British Empire which is fighting
for the freedom sf civilization
from the savagery, brutality and
bestiality of Prussian militarism.
The avowed object of tho Kaiser and his Prussian warbund is
to dominate the world with force.
Everything that we value, personal liberty, popular government, the ballot, would all be
subjugated to the same necessities, the same moral standards
which order the murder of children by zeppelin bombs, which
torpedo passenger ships and kill
women and children wholesale,
which ordered the brutal murder
of unselfish and heroic Edith
Cavell, which crucifies prisoners,
which has committed every dastardly crime ever perpetrated by
the most depraved savages.
This is the thing that must be
annihilated by this war. That is
what we are fighting for. And
British Columbia, as part of the
British Empire, must, and will,
do her share.
If men would take five minutes
to seriously consider what this
war means and what it is for
there would be no eligible man
left to be recruited in British Columbia. And every man who is
a man should carefully study this
question and then searchinglyask
himself what his own duty is and
why he should not do it.— Western Call, Vancouver.
The following figures furnish a
comparison between the quantities of the different metals used
in the manufacture of the 22,-
000,000 shells, for which orders
have been placed in Canada, with
our production of such metals in
1913.
Steel used, 400.000 tons. In
1913 it was estimated that the
production of iron ore in Canada,
307,634 tons, did not exceed 5
per cent of the country's requirements of iron in that year.
Zinc used, contained in brass,
11,200,000 pounds. No zinc was
refined in Canada in 1913 but the
exports of metalic zinc in ore
shipped amounted to slightly over 7,000,000 pounds.
Copper used, 55,000,000 pounds,
The total production in 1913 was
about 77,000,000 pounds and all
of it was exported for refining.
Lead, 101,760,000 pounds. The
production in 1913 was about
37,665,000 pounds, of which over
97 per cent was recovered as refined lead
BEATING LO^AL OPTION
An old criminal was once asked
what was the first step that led
him to ruin, and he said: "The
first thing that led me to my
down-fall was cheating an editor
out of two year's subscription.
When I had done thii the devil
had such a grip on me that I
could not shake him off." —Trail
News.
Farmers in the vicinity of New
Carlisle. U.S.A. have found a
way to "beat" the local option
laws.
Thousands of gallons of cider
were made in that section this
fail, and the farmers have discovered that by running it thru
a cream separator the water is
extracted, leaving little but the
pure alcohol remaining.
"It's got an awful kick" declared one farmer, who allowed
his barrel of cider to stand in the
warm sun for two weeks before
giving it the cream separator
test.
Since his discovery others are
filling their cellars with jugs of
the extracted juice.
The Overseas News Agency
at Berlin announces the destruction of the German cruiser Bremen. Reports of the sinking of
the warship were carried in press
despatches several days ago.
Ottawa. Jan.—The Minister of
Militia has decided to authorize
the raising of a number of special
regiments. These will include
one or more Indian Battalions, a
Metis Battalion, a colored Battalion and a naturalized Japanese
Canadian Battalion.
It has been figured that the
average cost of apprenticeship,
including the cost of bringing a
man to the working efficiency necessary to profit, is approximately $1,000. If this man is disabled from any cause, the employer must recognize a charge
for the cost of training another
workman, in addition to whatever damage he may be called
upon to pay as a result of the accident.
That the people of Sydney,
Australia, may derive fuii benefit
from fish caught by the recently purchased Government trawlers, the municipality of Sydney
has opened a fish market where
the catch is disposed of at moderate prices to the public. The
windows at the market are es-
specially constructed, being airtight and fitted with panes of
glass in front, so that the space
in which the fish are kept is insulated. From a refrigerator beneath, a blast of cold air is constantly passing over the fish,
which, it is stated, will keep fresh
for several weeks,
One of the immediate results
of the present war has been to
encourage the smelting and refining ores in Canada. While
certain metalic minerals have, in
the past, received preliminary
treatment in Canada, the ordinary metals of commerce, excepting lead, have been exported for
refining. Recent reports announce the establishment in Canada of plants for refining both
zinc and copper.
Considerable damage has been
done to the Krupp works at Essen by fire. The fire broke out
in a shed used for models and
spread to an adjoining building
that contained the wheel workshops, which were destroyed.
Katherine and Margaret found
themselves seated next to each
other at a dinner-party and immediately became confidential.
"Molly told me that you told
her that secret that I told you
not to tell her," whispered Margaret.
"Oh, isn't she a mean thing!"
gasped Katherine. "Why, I told
her not to tell you!"
"Well," returned Margaret,
"I told her I woulda't tell you
she told me—so den't tell her I
did." THE PROSPECTOR

The greatest hind ranee to
the progress of forestry in
this country is the low level
of stumpage values. In Europe, where labour is much
cheaper and stumpage values
several-fold higher than with
us, forest properties may be
maintained on a perpetual
yield basis and pay a fair return on the investment. What
obtains in Europe to day will
obtain in America tomorrow.
The practical question is,
"How may we hasten it?"
In a large' measure the answer to this question will be
found in the developement of
the art of the logging engin-.
eer.
Stumpage is that which remains when the cost of marketing the forest product has
bean paid out of the returns
from the sale. Obviously,
there are but three ways of
increasing stumpage values,
namely, by raising the price
of the product, by eliminating waste, or by reducing the
cost of marketing. Unhap-
pilly, the price of lumber,
the main forest, product, is
determined by a great varic ty
of considerations, most of
which are wholly beyond the
control cf the friends of the
forest.
The utilization of materials
previously wasted make slow
progress. There have not
been nearly so many by-product developements as could
be wished, and every step in
advance—no matter how rich
in early promise of good financial returns—largely defeats its own hopes on account of the overwhelming
supply of raw materiais on
the one hand and market limitations for the product on
the other.
Until lumber prices substantially and permantly advance, the main hope or bettering forest finances, and
thereby widening the field
where forestry may be practiced, rests in lowering the
costs of marKetingthe forest
crop.
The cost of marketing the
forest's crop may be roughly
divided into logging costs,
milling costs, lumber transportation, and selling costs.
The sawing and finishing
of lumber, together with lumber transportation, have already been highly standardized.' No doubt many further economies will be effected
in these departments from
time to time. A start, which
has every promise ot large
results, has already beenmade
in the, heretofore, much neglected field of lumber salesmanship. But perhaps the
largest field for economies is
that of logging, and the hope
for greater efficiency in this
quarter is in the development
of the art of logging engineering.
As agricultural calls to its
aid so much of the sciences
of chemistry, physics and biology, so the logging engineer
in the development of his
profession, takes toll from
the whole field of mechanical
science, and calls for much of
the best that has been produced by the modern alchemist, the metallurgist. No occupation calls for greater resource and adaptability. Every logging unit differs from
every other in the complexity
of variations in topography
and s'and; of the thousand
ways in which logging may
be done there are not many
profitable ways, and there is
of course, only one best way.
The man who knows and can
effectively carry out one or
more of these better waos is
a potential logging engineer.
The successful logging engineer of the past has compelled success by a more than
average ability and adaptability. How may the average logging foreman improve
his methods and thus take
the first steps to qualify for
a mining engineer? Must it
not be through bringing to
him the results of the best
thought of the thousands of
men who are devoting their
lives to this work?
The graduate of the forest
school, with a special training
in the department of logging
engineering, may hope to be
of considerable service to a
ROYAL
YEAST
logging company from the
start, bu, to be of the great-
esa service in the end, he
must be willing to start his
practical apprenticeship at
the bottom and work up.
