The mill will have  a floor area of 140 by 300 feet and will  be composed of two units of 1,000 tons  each.    The plans contemplate the addition of units as conditions warrant.-  Two lead furnaces and one copper  furnace are being kept in blast at the  Trail smelter, a clean-up of the local  lead ore bins being made to start fresh  shortly.  Electric Point has declared a dividend of 3 cents per share, amounting  to $23,790. and making a total of  $190,320 in disbursements from . this  property.  Authorities at Ottawa will probably  allow necessary expenses for the investigating commission, appointed to  look into smelter rates • charged at  Trail, according to advices from the  East.  Something like 50,000 to 100,000 tons  of slimes, or sand tails, from "Vaugh-  an's Lake," being the residue from the  zinc plant, will be worked over in the  concentrator, the process working out  satisfactorily, according to report.

For the horse, too, is paying his toll on the battlefields of the  great war and  for him there are no  countless substitutes such as the truck  can be furnished with.\ It is figured  that 1 ,+-70,000 horses and mules were  exported from the United States dur-  ' ing the last three years.   The value of  the horses exported  between August,  1914, and the last of July, 1017, was  $215,000,000,  and   that  of  mules   $Go>  '000,000.    As  a  consequence  the  contractor who  formerly   performed    the  jobs    taken  on   with   horses  now  re-  3erv»ce -quires the motor truck.    The lumber  operator from  whose  mills  two,  four  and six-horse-teams hauled the lumber  'for shipment by rail must have motor  trucks to supply the void left by the  commandeering of,forses for war work.   1 — , The miner turns to the motor truck.

Pender St.' W.. ^....^.....-..Sey.' 3053  NON-DELIVERY AS DANGEROUS,  AS NON-PRODUCTION TO NATION  "The non-delivery of goods and supplies necessary to the life of a community can boost the high cost of living just as quickly as non-production  due to scarcity of labor or material.  "Right now, at the beginning of summer, the cost of most every commodity  is unusually high. At first glance, one  would say that the demand is greater  than the supply, when, as a matter of  fact, the goods are manufactured ana  ready for consumption, but owing to a  lack of transportation facilities, they  cannot be delivered fast enough to  those points from whence the demand  arises.  "We all know the railroads have  more than they can handle. They are  falling far short of keeping up the  normal supply of goods while maintaining an uninterrupted delivery ot  supplies for the government. In addition they are called upon to rush  shipments' of raw materials to manufacturers doing government -work, as  well as transporting supplies to the  workers in the factories.  "Thus it can be seen that the railroads, while handling a herculanean  task in a manner,that speaks well for  Yankee ingenuity, are still unable to  keep alLcivilian channels as fully supplied as formerly. Such a situation  will eventually threaten the life of our  communities if( not remedied. The  stocks in retail stores and warehouses  are apt to be greatjy depleted, if supplies cannot reach them regularly and  in sufficient quantities. As goods he-  come scarcer, the'"prices on the remaining goods will increase in tho  same proportion as if tiie goods were  not being manufactured at ill."
