Paragraphs 1, 2, 3 and 4 were approved temporarily, until a bylaw  is brought in covering the subjects.  Action on the 5th and 6th clauses  was deferred until the next" meeting, and the 7th recommendation  was appoved.  While the 6th paragraph was under discussion, Aid. Schnitter expressed himself as being opposed to  the city entering into competition  with tbe local  hardware  merchants'!  On rhotion of  Aid.   McDonald  and  ; McCabe,   the   suggestion   was   ap-  i proved.    .The water and light  committee was also instructed   to  draft  .'a contrct with the South   Kootenay  Power company.  The chairman of the health and  relief cemmittee drew the attention  of the council to the recommendation of the food' controller regarding  the desirability of permitting citizens to keep pigs inside city limits  during the duration of the war.  The matter was discussed, the members of the council apparently favoring the proposition, under proper restrictions. The question- was  referred' to the health and relief  committee, with instructions to draft  rules and regulations governing the  keeping of pigs in the city.  Aid. McArdle reported that asup-  ply of coal had been purchased for  the. qity.hall.  Mayor Acres -reported that the  equipment "at the isolation hospital  had been fumigated, and he suggested that the same be stored in  the old West end school house.  The application for the rebate of  the water and light rates due on the  Lake property was referred to the  water and light committee.  Aid. Plarkness gave noticethat at  the next meeting be would ask leave  to introduce bylaws amending the  electric light rates bylaw-and the  water rates bylaw.  Resident- Engineer Reports  on Properties in This  District  -"��������� -  " is^Amertca 'Saving?  On   all   sides  oue  hears talk of  household economy,  and   thrift   in  every, aspect of our  daily life.    It  is interesting to   learn just   what is  being accomplished along these lines,  and  an  article . by  Lucy Oppen in  the February Good Aousekeeping is  particularly illuminating, She says:  .  "The fir.st factor which would lead  us to. expect an increase   is the  fact  .that home gardens.the increased use  of perishable foodstuffs, and the increased   amount   of   home'canning  contributed very materially   to   the.  kitcken refuse of 1917.   The second  factor, which would lead us  to   expect   an   increase  instead of  a decrease this year, is the fact .that   in  practically every   butcher  shop   in  the country, the scraps -of���������fat   and  bones, which were formerly   thrown  under the counter to be sold to  rendering companies, are  now   pushed  off to the customer.    Figures  from  tbe rendering companies which used  to buy these scraps  show   that   the  housewife   is   now doing  her own  rendering.  "Under these conditions, the report that the quantity of garbage  collected during the first nine  months of 1917' in eighty-one cities  showed a decrease.of 12 to 15 per  cent over tbe collections of 1916 is  nothing short of marvellous. Translated, this means that the housekeeper who used to put seven to  eight pounds of material into her  garbage pail every week has not  added a pound or two as  might  be  expected, on   account of her  larger  for the sale of electric heating and I use   of   perishable   foodstuffs and .fairly high-grade silver-lead ore over  Philip B. Freeland, residen t mining engineer, with   headquarters  in  this  city,   has made  the following  preliminary report  of  the  progress  of mining development in the Grand  Forks mining division  during   1917  to, the   provincial   department    of  mines.    The report  is included  in  Bulletin' No.   1, 1918,   Preliminary  Review and   Estimate  of   Mineral  Production for 1917, which has just  been published by the department:  The  greatest  activity   in  mining  development   iu   this  division' for  1917 was shown up the Granby river  (North fork of   Kettle  river),   prospects   which - have-  lain   idle for a  great many  years having   received  the attention  of  their  owners   and  some  of   the   old  workings cleaned  out and.samples taken.    The Union  mine   has   shipped   approximately  690 tons (dry) to tbe Granby   smelter at Grand Forks.  The Original, also up the  Granby  river, has shipped some 38 tons.  The owners of the Maple Leaf  claims, adjoining the Union on the  north, side,, have stripped off an area  on the surface about 200 feet wide,  from which a small amount of native copper intermingled with the  country rock was found. On driving  a tunnel about twenty feet into the  formation the native copper has disappeared, giving place to sulphides.  The owners have purchased a second  hand 50-ton furnace and intend to  smelt their own ores, thereby saving  transportation one way.  The Inland Mining company has  done a small amount.of development work on the Berlin claim, four  miles east of Paulson, and' have  shipped one carload of high-grade |  silver and gold ore. to the Grand  Forks smelter.  The   Molly   Gibson    mine  leased   by   the    company   to   two  Swedes, who   threw   up   their contract after a few weeks' work.  The lime quarries at Fife have  been shipping fairly regularly to the  Trail smelter for a 11 ux, no estimate  of the tonnage having been received  up to date.  Waterloo Claim, Lightning Peak.  ���������This claim is being developed  undea difficulties owing to a lack of  transportation. A few hundred  pounds of high-grade silver ore has  been packed out on horses to Edge-  wood, on the Arrow lakes, a distance of approximately thirty miles  ovf-r the trail.  West Fork.���������This claim has   also  shipped a few hundred   pounds   of  Emma.���������About 36,102 tons of  ore has been mined and shipped  from this mine to the Trail smelter.  This ore carries gold, silver, and  copper values, and also a fairly high  percentage of iron. The mine is not  in operation at this date, December  12th, owing to the strike at Trail.  THE FAILURE OF  THE RAILROADS  OQKE WINS  MILITMIH  Son of Well Known  Fruit  Rancher Wins Honors    -  on Battlefield  The   railroads   have only .themselves to thank for tbe loss of private  ownership; this is the conclusion of  Bradford Merrill, after careful study  of the records, which he makes public in the article,  "Railroads Themselves   Prove'���������"   in  the   February  number of Hearst's Magazine.  Public ownership has become   necessary  because   the   public has   been systematically aud for many years deceived and cheated   out of   its just  dues.    High    finances    sometimes  seems too complicated  to be readily  understood, but  Mr. Merrill  brings  out with  a clearness which can not  | be withstood the sensational story  of the rise of the New York  Central  lines to power,and the means which  were taken to get every possible con  cessiou from the state, while seeing  that the public never got the benefit  of their success. The story roads like  a novel of Big Business, or, with  a  change of details, like the' depredations  of   the  robber   barons of the  middle ages who held the_ high ways  and;exacted toll from every one who  passed.    How money was borrowed  from   the   state  and  never repaid,  how railroads which   never  existed  off of paper were capitalized at large  figures,    how   surplus   profits were  turned into this  over-capitalization,  and how,i.iifter all this, the railroads  have put up  a cry of a need for increase in rates which   would   put a  burden of 8400,000,000 on   the  nation's cost of living,   is   a   startling  revelation   which   the   public   has  been   sorely   needing,   and   which  clearly explains the reisbn why  the  railroads have forfeited  their   right  to   the   unquestioning trust of  the  public to whom   they  acknowledge  no obligations. This question of government   ownership   is  one of the  most, important in  our present do  mestic affairs, and it is one   which  was'no one, after reading   Mr.   Merrill's  article   iu   Hearst's for  February,  can fail to understand.  Pte. T. G. Rooke, son of Mr. and  Mrs James Rooke, of this city, has,  according to recent advices received  here from England, been awarded'  the military medal for conspicuous  services in a recent battle in Fian-  "ders, in which the Canadian - troops  fully upheld the laurels won by  their compatriots during the early  stages of the war. In the action in  which he distinguished himself,  Pte. Rooke received shrapnel wounds  in his leirt arm which are reported  to be of a serious nature. He is now  in a hospital in England.  A general invitation   is extended  to   ranchers,   their    wives,      their  friends, and their cousins  and their  "aunts to attend an "at home" to   be  held in the Davis hall on   Wednesday evening, February   6, under the  auspices of the Grand   Forks Farmers' Institute.   A good musical program has been arranged, and   cards  and refreshments .will  also  contribute to the   enjoyment   of   theocon-  sion. The committee will be pleased  to receive baskets at the hall.  ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING-  cooking stoves.

The  inmates received the gift with much  pleasure, and to show their appreciation of her majesty's kindness,  and to prove that the flowers had  arrived safely, they commissioned  one of their number to stand at the  gate the following morning wheti  the queen passed.  The result was a tremendous surprise, Queen Mary, seated in her  car, saw the soldier standing  at the gate, bouquet in hand, and  assuming that he wished to present  it to her, she had the car stopped.  As the soldier exhibited the bouquet, the queen took it in her hand,  remaked upon its beauty, calmly  appropriated it, and gave orders for  the car to go on.  The soldier stared in   amazement.

There was a large attendance of the  congregation to hear the  reports  of  the  different   departments   of   the  church.    Rev. P. C.  Hayman   presided over the gathering. The financial   report  of  the church, read by  the   people's   warden,   rhovved that  much work had been accomplished  during   the   year.    Mr3.   W. K. C.

Hayman  reported   on   behalf of tho  Sunday  school, the attendance having   been  most satisfactory.    The finances  of  the school also made a  good  showing.    The election of officers  resulted as follows: People's warden,Geo.  Staufield;   rector's   warden,  II.   J.  Marks; church   committee,   F. It. S.  Barlee, Jeff Davis, C. C. Heaven, U.  A. S.

OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET:  FRIDAY, --FEBRUARY 1,' 1918'  The  remark  is  frequently   made  that the  city of Grand Forks is making too big a profit  out  of its electric lighting plant, and that it  should throw in the meters  to  consumers  as  good measure.   This point is not well  taken,  and the remark is usually made by persons who  are not conversant with the city's finances.  Ill  going over some figures with the city clerk the  other day, it was demonstrated to The Sun man  that the  lighting  system,  instead  of having  been a big revenue producer during the  past  few years, actually showed a deficit when depreciation of plant and interest on the investment   was   charged  against  it.    But at the  present moment it is. not our intention to deal  the system as whole.    The council propses to  levy  a  rental   of 1.5  cents   per   month   for  electric  light  meters, and it is in connection  with this phase of the question that  we  wish  to submit a few figures.    The meters cost, f.o.  b. Vancouver, $10.35; there is  a government  inspection fee (good for five years) of 60 cents,  and the  express charge from  Vancouver  to  Grand  Forks  is $1.00, making  the total cost  of each  meter  laid down in this city $11.95.  Add to this   $1.00  for  installation, including  wire loop from the pole, and we have an actual cash outlay by the city of $12.95.    Interest  on tho investment for five ysavs at 7 per cent  $4.55: cost of government inspections at  end  of five years 90 cents, brings the actual cost of  .each meter at the end of five years  to $18.40,  and this sum allows nothing for depreciation  of the meter.    The maintenance costs of the  meter'per year are: Inspection fees, 30 cents:  depreciation and repairs, 50  cent; interest on  investment, 90 cents, making a total  of $1.70  per year.    The   meter   rent, at 15  cents per  month, amounts to SI.80 per year, giving, the  city a yearly profit of but 10 cents per meter.  In view of these.facts, it -'s not likely that the  ratepayers will offer any serious objections to  the proposed meter rental price, as long as the  council observes due economy in the expenditure of the city's funds.  The food situation in the allied countries of  western Europe is graver than it.has been at  any time since the beginning of the war. Information has been recejved by the food controller which shows that the utmost effort  must be made to increase spring acreage and  to secure a much larger production of bread  grains in 1918 than was done in 1918. Mr.  Hoover has already pointed -put that if ships  have to be sent.to more distant countries to  carry food stuff to Europe; fewer ships will  be available to carry, soldiers and supplies  from this continent, with the result that the  continued participation of Canada and the  United States in the war will be greatly hampered. The situation has been thoroughly  canvassed, and among those who have studied  it there is unanimous agreement that the only  solution of the food problem is greater production in North America. In . this connection itis especially important that the spring-  acreage sown in ^ bread grains should be. as  large as it can possibly be made. Every person who can possibly produce food must do  so, no matter how small his or her contribution --may be. Those who con not produce-  food, can at least conserve it. The "utmost  economy is imperative.. The situation today is  critical and the world is rapidly approaching  that condition when price' will not be the most  important question, but when even the people  of Canada may be glad to eat any food which  they can obtain. The successful prosecution  of the war by the allies will depend to a very  large degree upon the extent of the food production and food conservation this, year by  the people of North America. Baron Rhondda  in a recent message says: "The food position  in this country and, I understand, in France  also, can without exageration  be described as  r  Wo have  some excel  entry good values in watches for boys.  They are good time keepers and made  strong enough-to be boy-proof. Call and  and see them. ,   .     .  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  o LY-fl. wa.*yfl.WAiVJWi--'| GRAND PORKS, B. G.  ^=  -J  French Comments on  American Soldiers  When the American troops first  inarched through the streets of Paris,  says a writer in Everybody's -Magazine, there were niany comments made  uuon their appearance. A great many  times the French said, "Oh, ils sout  fameux!1'���������"They're fine!" And sev-  eral times came the com merit, "How  tall and thin they are!" Once or twice,  with a hearty emphasis, almost of admiration, "Heavens, how ugly they  are!" and ] didn't realize until I saw  them there together how the Lincoln  type of powerful, rawboned, sincere  ugliness has persisted in many Americans.  One working woman kept saying,  '"It makes me want to cry when I see  their flag here," and an old man said,  "I hope there is a German spy on  every street corner." Another woman,  jumping up and down in excitement,,  exclaimed, ''Oh, 1 am so glad I am  going to see them! I never saw an  Anierican'in my life."  But the pleasantest remark of a  was passed by a middle aged woman  who said, after she had seen the United States soldiers, "Every time I see  tho American (lag it makes me think,  '.No, tiie Germans were wrong.

A paragraph for the nearsighted. One of  the most competent experts in ophthalmology  calls attention to the fact that those nearsighted persons who take off their glasses to  read or to do any near work thereby increase  the convexity of the eye lens, which is the  cause of nearsightedness,'and thus gradually  create a need for glasses of greater power.

The increase the council proposes to meet by raisin <T  the water rates so that,they will bring in ^2000  per year more than they have heretofore, and  by decreasing the general expenditures of the  city 81000.. The proposed rates are ������1.50,  $1.95 and 62.25. With the 10 per cent discount they are reduced to 61.05, 61.75 and 62.  This makes Grand Forks' lowest rate 81.0.20  per year.

Hair gets soft, fluffy and  beautiful���������Get a small bottle  of Danderine. ,  Wellington's CooHness  ��������� A story is told that shows the  Ouke of Wellington's characteristic  coolness in battle. Even in the hottest engagements he sometimes  fouud time to make humorous observations, especially when it seemed  to raise the spirits of his men. This  was the case when the British were  sti raring Badajnz,  The general rode up while the  bulls were falling thickly and, observing an artilleryman who was^  particularly active, inquired the  man's name, lie was answered,  "Taylor."  "A   very   good   name, , too,"  remarked Wellington.  "Cheer up, my  . men, our Taylor will soon   make   a  pair of breaches in the wall!"  At this sally the men  forgot  the  danger. A burst of   laughter   broke  from   them,   and the   next  charge I  carried the fortress.  was entraged otie night  in   writing   a  letter in a humble abode where he had  obtained accommodation.   The gutter  ing   candles   annoyed   him,  and   he  called out:  "Mrs. McPherson, can you get me  a pair of snuffers'?"  A pair o' snuffers?" repeated Mrs.  McPherson, somewhat bewildered.  "Weel, I'lldae my best."  In a few minutes there was a com  motion outside. Two stalwart figures  shuffled in,' followed by Mrs. McPherson.   .  "This is Donald McDougall," she  said, l'aud this is Dougall McDon  aid. I dinna ken what ye want  wi' them; but I'm thinkin' the twa o'  them tak' mair snuff than any ither  twa in the parish."  If you care for heavy hair-that glistens with beauty and is radiant with  life; litis an incomparable softness and  is fluffy and lustrous, try Danderine.  Just one application doubles the  beauty of your hair, besides it immediately "dissolves every particle: of  ������������������landniff. You can not 'nave nice heavy,'  healthy hair if you have dandruff. This  destructive scurf robs the hair of its  lustre, its strength and its very life,  and if not overcome it produces a Jever-  ishncs3 and itching of the scalp; the  hair roots famish, loosen and die; then  the It air falls out fast. Surely get a  small- bottle of Knowlton's danderine  from any drug store and just try it.  A Rude Princess  An anecdote from the anonymous  book, Russian Court Memories, con  cents the ex-czar's daughter;?, the  Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiaua.  One windy day when the two little  girls were driving through the streets  of Petrograd a crowd of people  recognized the ��������� imperial equipage,  and the grand ducEres'es," Holding on  their hats with both hands, bowed  right and left, as they had been  laught to do,in answer to the salutes  they received.  At first the Grand Duchess Tati-  ana was amused, and she bowed  and laughed and looked delighted;  but after a while she grew tired and,  looked cross, bobbing her head like I  a Chinese mandarin, until at last  she gave it up, dropped her hands  and put out her tongue at the bowing crowd.  This childish outbreak was received with a roar of laughter and  the exclamatiou, "Just like our own  children!"  Why We Are AH Afraid  Nearly every one of U9 has some  peculiar fear���������something which continually grips us and keeps us in  dread. Some fear thunderstorm?,  some are afraid to meet people���������  there are a hundred and one other  phases.  It is possible to banish these fears  by a process now known as psychoanalysis. This is rather a fearful  name in itself. But H. Addingtou  Bruce in the Eebruary Harper's Bazar, shows that psycho-analysis is  nothing but a common sense way of  ridding people of their fears.  Mo Keason Why He Should  A man from the north of England  was spending a few days in London  with a friend and, after a busy morning of sight-seeingr the Londoner took  him to a large restaurant ot noon,  thinking that lunching there would  be a novel experience for the  countryman. The visitor appeared to  enjay the luncheon, but he kept looking-anxiously toward the door.  "What are you watching?" asked  his friend.  "Well," was the quiet reply, "Aa's  keeping an eye on ma topcoat*''  "Oh, don't brother about that,"  said the other. "You don't see me  watching mine. "���������  ''No," observed the visitor, "thoo  has tio caal to watch. It's ten minutes sin thine went."

There has'just been  issued a 'map of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. -It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly Star of Montreal,'and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. It is in four colors and  about 2^x8������"feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5xlU inches.  The mapjs surrounded by a border-of  the regimental badges and coat of  arms of- nearly .every ..battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes.in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in'detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase,- however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate $1.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small' extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should be still greater when this offer  becomes known.
