GRL&  A FAVORABLE  . COPPER MARKET  During the year 19*16 and the first  balf'of 1917 * the allies purchased'  copper for their requirements at an  -average price of 26 cents, though the  market price was substantially higher. All- producing companies in  Canada and the United States participated in supplying this copper  in proportion to their output.  The market is waiting the placing  of the United Sta'tes government  contracts for a sufficient additional  quantity of the metal to carry it  through the remainder of this year,  and opinions as to the price which  will be paid -vary from 2(> cents  down to 20 cents per pound.  Many domestic consumers apparently believe that tbey will be, able  to cover their requirements at the  price level established by the United  States government, and this is their  reason for deferring as long.as pos  si hie purchases for current needs.

Mart n Bur-  rell, arrangements have been, made  to have the Canadian Bankers', association co operate with the department of agriculture in providing . a  liberal sum of money to be offered  in prizes for calves and pig's exhibited by boys and girls under 17  years of age at county or- township  fairs.  These competitions are known as  the Canadian Bankers' Competi  tions, and are linked up with the  activities of the live stock branch  of the Dominion department of  agriculture. They represent an effort  to increase interest in live stock, and  constitute a part of the active campaign for more and "better stock inaugurated ana1'carried on by'the department. * The generous'support  accorded the movement by, the Canadian Bankers' association" affords a  practical demonstration of the attitude of "the banks towards the live  stock industry, and the active participation of the association in this  campaign is bound to strengthen  and create general-interest in farm  livestock.  Canadian Bankers' Competitions  will be field at a large number of  shows this year," and boys and. girls  should lose no time in finding out  all abou-. them. The calves and  pigs must be fed at least six weeks  by the boys and girls who exhibit  them, so that it is very important to  act promptly in securing a copy of  the rules and othe^jinformation.  Full information regarding tbe  competitions can be obtained from  the manager of any branch bank in  the locality where a fall fair is  held.   -���������  Exceptionally.

Mr. McLeod, of Phoenix, will  have charge of the development of  the property ibis summer and next  winter. A crew of men is being  engaged, cabins will be erected and  everything put in first-class shape  for Motiva and continuous development work.

The different churches have been  asked to deal with this subject on  Sunday next.  Inverted Rain  It will be easily understood^writes  C. G Grey in Tales of the Flying  Services, that before a bullet that  has been shot straight upward begins to fall there must be point  where it stands dead still, and that  for the last part of its upward path  it travels very'slowly.--'One officer of  my acquaintance told me, after  some months of war, that his most  curious experience was when once,  and only- once, he discovered the  exact extreme range point.  He was flying along quite peacefully on a bright, sunny morning a  an altitude of a little over eight  thousand feet, without worrying  about anything, when suddenly he  saw something bright dart past the  machine. He began to look about  him and saw,a shade below him and  a little to one side, a whole stream  of little bright things glittering in  the sun.  ��������� Then he realized that he had just  struck a level that  happened  to be"  the extreme vertical range ol a machine gun that was making   uncommonly good shootiug. Other bullets  from   other     machine    guns also  flashed into view as he  flew   along,  and when his eyes caught the  right  focus he could follow the   slow, topmost part of  their   movement for a  considerable distance.  "It looked,"  he said, "just as if  it  were  raining  upward," and the phenomenon was  so novel that he quite  forgot for a  time that the "raindrops" indicated  that he   was unpopular with some  one-below.

"Let your penalties,"  says that austere philosopher, "be  like the penalties inllicted'by inanimate nature, inevitable. The hot  cinder burns a child the first time  he seizes it; it burns him the second  time; it burns him every time; and  he very soon learns not to touch the  hot cinder." That was Mrs Buskin's  method. To illustrate her way of  teaching lessons, llushin used to tell  the following incident of bis early  childhood, which his mother was  fond of relating:  "One evening, when I was yet in  my nurse's arms, I wanted to touch  the tea urn, which was boiling merrily. It was an early taste for  bronzes, I suppose; but I was resolute about it My mother bade me  keep my fingers back; J insisted on  putting them forward My nurse  would have taken me away, but my  mother said:  " 'Let him touch it, nurse.'

C. minister of mines, we came to  the issue for the year ending December 31st, 1897, says the Granby  News. This number contains a report on Phoenix camp by W. A.  Carlyle,- who was then provincial  mineralogist, and who has since bad  a distinguished career in Europe.  In that year the province produced  metals valued at over seven million  dollars, Slocan holding the banner-  position as a producer with an output valued at well over three mil-'  lions. The Rossland mines were  beginning to show up and their  output totalled over two millions-  The Hall Mines smelter at Nelson  was then in charge of B. K Hedley, .  who had just succeeded Paul Johnson, and this plant turned cut a product worth over a million dollars.  Osoyoos division was the chief ^.producer in the western part ot-the  province, Fairview camp and Camp  McKinney producing jjetween-them^  gold to the of $150,000. The northern part of the province produced  8325,000 in placer gold, while the  output from the coast was negligible.  At that time the present location  of Phoenix was known as Greenwood camp, and was reached either  from Bossburg or from Penticton by  stage. The chief points on the route  were Camp McKinney, Midway,  Grepnwood, Grand Forks and Bossburg. The trip took three days,overnight stops being made at Camp  McKinney and Grand Forks. The  road between Pboeuix and Penticton  was one hundred miles long, the  same as the present road via the  Osoyoos hill. It is described as good  but very dusty in warm weather.  It will be noticed that every claim  that has ever been of any importance  in the whole district was staked at  the time. In Central camp, the  No. 7 mine, with F, Kefier as superintendent, was down 140 feet with  their shaft and was showing up some  good ore. The City of Paris mine,  owned by John Stevens, Fairview,  and H. White, Carson, was also  showing up some good ore.

Many stirring stories, now officially suppressed, will be told when the war ends. The  facts about the British campaign against the  German submarine will be perhaps the most  eagerly awaited. But there is also the story  of Gordon Campbell. The British admiralty  refuse to say why he has received the Victoria Cross and the Distinguished Service  Order and been promoted over the heads of  seven hundred lieutenant commanders; but it  says that the deed was "one of the most gallant acts that a man over performed," and  that after the war the tale "will be road as  one of the most thrilling stories ever told."

Before then it is planned to  issue nearly $1,000,000,000 in short-time  treasury certificates to meet the immediate  needs of the government in pushing war plans.  A campaign overshadowing the publicity  which made the first bond loan a success is  now being planned to sell the second loan.  A women's "liberty loan" committee will be a  feature of the second bond-selling campaign.  State chairmen have been named and central  offices have been opened in Washington.

Later, another  drift across this zone was driven and much better gold  values obtained which, as the report states, "lead to  greater expectations of striking pav ore."
