The speaker recounted  the pleasant relations that   bad., aU  ways existed between Mr. Niles and  and the business men of the.city.  Mr. Niles made an appropriate  response,-in-whichh.e said-thafc the  change was not'of his own choosing,  as he.was obliged to go wherever the  bank officials sent him. He felt very  grateful for the present.and promised  to make at leastjannual visits to the  city in the future.  Short speeches were also made by  Geo.

WORK ON LOCAL  MINES IN 1919  (From the Report of. the Minister of  -,^ Mines.)  The Little Bertha and Pathfinder  mines are situated approximately  sixteen miles north of Grand Forks  on the east side of the North Fork  of the Kettle river. Both these mines  Wr:re-worked someyears ago, chiefly  bv local capital, and a small quantity of ore shipped to'the smelter.  year was confined to cleaning out  the old inclined shaft and a short  driven mi the ore ���������'���������to:ascertain, if  possible, its strike and dip, which  will facilitate further developm-p'nt  in the crosscut Assays from some  samples taken from the bottom  of the shaft gave $80 in gold aud  silver.  ���������������������������The Yankee Boy, situated on  Hardy mountain, near Grand Forks  is under lease to J. Bailey, of Eholt,  J. R. Nichol et al. A cousideable  amount.of development work was  done and some ore taken out, but  not shipped. The ore is galena, ar~  gentite, with a smali amount of  tetrahedrite in a quartz gaugue.  The Union mine has been worked  during the latter part of the year by  the owners, Louis Johnson, Pat Ma-  ginnis and J. McDonald, of Grand  Forks. Eighty one tons of ore was  shipped to Trail, having an approximate coutent of 0.2S oz. in gold and  31 oz. in silver to the ton. An analysis of the ore shipped is as fol.  lows: Gjld, 0.28 oz ; silver, 31 oz.;  copper,- 0.05 per cent; zene, 0? 15 per  cent; sulphur, 17T3 per cent"; silica,  74.S per cent; iron, 4.40 par. ceut;  lime, 5.90 per ceut. Development  work now being carried on consists  of a crosscut driven north from No.  2 tunnel, which exposed 22 feet ijof  ore averaging about 820 in gold and  silver, and a drift on the lead .of  about 20 feet.  ""���������The Emma mine is owned'by the  Consolidated Mining & Smelting  company of Trail. Strikes in. the  coal mines were directly" responsible  for the closing clown of this mine  during a part of the year. Resumption of work commenced in the au  tumn and 21,273 tons of low grade  copper ore was shipped to Trail,  having a content of 524 oz. in gold.  730.2 oz in<Bilver, and 473.729 lb.  of copper.  The Berlin is situated at Paulson  and owned by the Inland Mining  company. Walla Walla, Wash. This  mine has been dosed down for a  gerter part of the year.

Wash., with the result that   a   con- ,  tract has been let to A, E. Savage, of  Grand Forks, to drive a tunnel uader  the .old    workings   of   the    Little  Bertha.

Young,' of Grand Forks, is manager  of. the property and responsible for  all the. new development and con  struction curried on for the past few  years." Development for 1919 is as  follows: Lower tunnel, 160 feet;  crosscut, 100'feet.. A 3 drill compressor and gasoline engine were installed and housed, also an assay  jjf.Iice.  The lower tunnel has been driven  due west iuto the hill. At the mouth  of tuunel a coarse browuish-red tuff,  highly altered to sericite and chlor  ite and containing small amounts of  iimonite' and haematite was cut. Iu  the fractures of this rock a consider  able amount of native copper was  apparent. About ten feet in from  the mouth of the tunnel the native  copper was replaced by minute particles of iron and copper sulphides,  the latter disappearing almost en  tirely as the tunnel was driven  farther into the hill. Near the face  of the tunnel a finer grained volcanic  tuft' was eucouutered and a microscopic examination showed small  pyritohedrous of pyrite scattered  through the rock. A few of. the  pyrite crystals contained minute  quantities of chalcopyrite and gold,  but not in sufFicieut quauities to  make the rock commercial.  The manager of the mine was  able to get in his own assay office  between 18 and 20 per cent of lead  from some of the samples taken from  the mine. Other samples brought  down by the manager were found to  conta u no lead, and no lead minerals could be discovered under a lii������h  I r-l.tlr-ri-l'I.

The  little   box   has   a  storeroom full of  soft candy ar one end with a passage  leading to the outside.

Of couise before trying to   in  troduce a new  queen 'the   old   one  must be removed, as   nature's   provision is for only one at a time.  Tntrre are many ways of raising  queens. One simple way that does  not require the delicate operation of  transferring the minute larvae to artificial cell cups is to make a  small  sirable in t'-e valley, and   the   pri ������������������������������������  paid for it is understood to have b-t-o  it keeping with its value as  a   rev  euue producer, however.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 1020  Ilenewal of war in Europe is gene  ceded as a possibility and is treated in the  gravest terms in the newspapers of London.  War is not regarded as inevitable, but none  ventures to strike an optimistic note. "A very  dark hour," is the Times'editorial heading.  ."Is it war?" asks the Daily News, and the  Telegraph declares-: ."The situation holds the  gravest peril which has menaced'Europe'since  the  Germans  marehed into  Belgium."

Moreover it denies that any 'British  troops will be sent.to Poland. Meanwhile the  Daily Herald, the organ of the extreme labor  men, is conducting a vigorous crusade to  arouse labor against any military action against  the soviet. Tor the first-time in its history it  published on Sunday a special Sunday edition,  ���������rhe entire contents of which were inrlicated  by a line right across the front page: "Not a  man, not a gun, not a soul!"

MOKItlSO.V  We have no excuse to offer for quoting  rather freely from the annual report of the  minister of mines, as we believe that the people who invest in mining stock have a perfect  right.to know what the government engineers  think of the properties.  The financial returns from land in England  are so small and the taxes are so exceedingly  heavy that the great landowning families are  s Hi ug hundreds-of thousands of acres,ancl the  last traces'of feudalism are vanishing. In one  respect the results are a surprise to theorists;  the tenant farmers who buy their farms are  often dissatisfied with their changed condition.  Having borrowed money at a high rate of interest and having become liable to a whole set  "f taxes that the landlord formerly paid, they  are sometimes eager to sell their newly acquired property and to get out of their predicament as best they can.  Accord in a' to tests recently made- bv the  forest products laboratory at Madison, Wis,,  a cord of heavy wood, such as oak, beech,  birch, hard maple, ash, elm, locust, long-leaf  pine or cherry, is equal in heating value to a  ton of coal. The news may be interesting, but  is cold comfort to dwellers in eastern cities,  where such wood costs eighteen dollars a cord,  or more than coal. ' There may be seme consolation in Thoreau's view that the wood warms  you twice; but it would be interesting if some  scientific organization would ' calculate the  heating value of the fuel on' the man who has  to pay ft.

Not daunted, however,  ���������ihe did the usual churning and pro  (ftjoed a finer-looking roll of butter.  But she couldn't eat it, though she  knew the butter would sarisfc anyone  who did not know about the mouse.  So she took it to the storekeeper, told  him the truth, and a*ked whether he  would exchange it for a roll from his  cellar.  "You know," she said, making a  slight misquotation, "for" what the  mind doesri't know the heart won't  grieve for."  "Oh, that's all   right," replied  the  obliging storekeeper.   "I'm glad toac  -o inundate you."  Lie disappeared into the cellar and  a moment later reappeared with a roll  ���������>f butter similar to that he had taken  down.  The woman thanked    him and de  parted.  A few days later she   was  in  the store again.  "How did you like the butter I  gave you the other day?" the storekeeper asked.  "It was just lovely," the woman  said, "just lovely. I couldn't have  told it from my own "  "Noither could I," said the storekeeper ''You knnw that what the  mind doesn't know the heart doesn't  grieve about, That butter was youi  own "  And  in   Germany    Tliey  Often Garry Marks  "The police," declared a Hong'  kong paper, with'..one of. tho������e for  tunate misprints that give the jokfr  opportunity, "announce that dogs  without dollars found wandering  an>r.ten o'clock in the evening are  liable to he destroyed."

JU-R. B USINESS <SyV[AN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put? you in  good company? It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When.you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.      -  How many large concerns  can you name  in any  large  city in the country?   Name  them   and you   will  notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in   their  lines.    Ask your friends   to  name the   most   successful  merchants they know in the  big  cities, and in  each case  the name of a great  advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller citieJ' and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  a  isers in  Tiie  Hi  t THE   SUN.
